It is so easy to deal with problems, and life, with the feeling ‘I can handle this’. We don’t ask God for his directions or help.  Sometimes, by God’s grace, it works out.  Other times he reminds us we are not self-sufficient.  We are having our rummage sale.  The date is October 5-7.  I had planned to mention it at the Community Dinner.  I did not see the need to write it down. I mentally rehearsed 5,6,7 several times.  So at the meal I told folks we were having our Rummage Sale and they were invited.  Then I announced it would be October 8,9,10.  Fortunately some of our folks there spoke up to correct me so I could change it to 5,6,7.  Some people graciously offered me a humorous out. As I thought about it I think what happened was my plan to just rehearse set me up.  Having gone to grade school and learned to count to ten, I believe my somewhat fatigued brain tried to help me out and just picked up the count I had been rehearsing.  I can’t say for sure. But my plan fell flat.

            This was truly a somewhat minor deal but the thought came to mind that in all of life we should, as we walk with God, be seeking his directions as we deal with things.  Proverbs 3:5-7 is good advice.  Hope we remember to follow it.
