Just What I Needed

Sing with me. "It's just what I needed!" I honestly can't remember any other part of that song except that. And I don't know who sang it. Or when it came out.

What is wrong with me?

Oh, that's right. It's that crazy time of year when I don't know how I'll ever get everything done. Today I read a Facebook status that said there were 9 days until Christmas. Can I tell you that I almost passed out. I had to pull out my calendar. And calculator. But it was right, 9 days. To make matters worse, that's only 2 school days. 2! I have 30 teacher gifts to make and 2 parties. Oh, and I have to finish Christmas shopping and plan and shop for all the food. Oh, and make goodies. Oh, and have several gifts ready for an all day pre-Christmas celebration with Shawn's family. Oh, are you tired of me saying 'oh'? I know I certainly am.

Moving on.

Monday morning my head was spinning with to-do lists and thoughts of how to pack lunches when I was out of old fashioned oats, hadn't made bread, and had no idea what to pack in lunches. I ran outside to scour the freezers for a spare loaf and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this.I think my socks froze to the ground while I stood and just stared. I needed this. A reminder from God that He is greater than everything.


He's just what I needed:c)

So true...isn't it amazing how He always seems to be right there when we don't even know that we need Him!!
Blessings to you all. It will come together.

"Just What I Needed" by the Cars? It was released in 1978, which makes me feel really old (40 next year, yikes!).
