Slow it down.

I had a doctor appointment this morning, dermatology. Well, the appointment was for 12:30. These days 12:30/1:00 has basically still been morning in our house.

At 10 o'clock I sat with blankets all around, essentially not willing to start the day. I knew no matter how soon we started getting ourselves prepared to go, it would still take a mad dash at the end to make the appointment at any reasonable time.

I didn't have it in me to do the big flurry today. So we didn't.

While praying, the thought occurred to me that I could call and reschedule. ( I did check the website. There was a fee for missing an appointment without 24hour notice, but even that was less than my copay.)


A friend emailed me a devotion -- from Proverbs 31 ministries -- which prompted that prayer.


So, I called the doctor's office. Rescheduled. And put away some laundry. And made a well-balanced lunch.

We didn't rush anywhere at all. Today.
