My Extra Hour

Sometimes prayers are answered in the most unusual ways.  I have a pretty standard routine for my day.  We try to finish school and housework, have dinner started and the kids go out to play while I catch up on some paperwork with a couple of afternoon television shows playing in the background.   This morning, in my frustrated haste to get everything underway, I asked God for just a little bit of time to get caught up.

Today, during the Barack Obama Infomercial (formerly known as Oprah) I realized this was the extra hour I needed to get some things marked off my list.   Television off and :38 minutes into the hour, I’ve bathed the dog and little kitty, started a load of laundry, scrubbed my kitchen sink, organized some craft supplies, started a fire in my fireplace, cleaned a toilet and made this notation.

I can accept the joy the election holds for some, but this level of hero-worship  borders on idolatry to me.

  1. ICAM, Kim. I’ve heard people calling him “the chosen one” and the like…and it turns my stomach. I don’t get it.

  2. Thanks for checking out my blog and commenting, Kim! Your blog is one that inspired me to start mine. You seem like a really fun person to know. Now, about my house…I didn’t say that it was ALWAYS clean – THAT would be a task in itself! 😉 Have a blessed evening.
