BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

So I started to write a post yesterday and suddenly I was thinking blah blah, blah blah, blah blah! Shut up Debby, nobody wants to hear this and besides that you already said you were not going to be around much.

Here's the dealio....I cannot get a fast connection inside my father's house. Apparently it's built like Fort Knox. I was on with Verizon and we tested the signals. Outside I get a 100% fast signal, inside is cut in half which makes it super slow. I feel like I'm in some bomb shelter cut off from the world.  I can actually accomplish  almost everything from my phone which is as quick and fast as always but I don't care for the small screen when it comes to blogging.

Right now I am getting a pretty good signal in front of the window in my bedroom but opening and reading blogs always has been the harder thing to accomplish. So I can go in and clear what I know I won't be reading and I am saving your posts to read when I get home. I did this when I was in Europe for 3 weeks last year and I just caught up when I got home.

"In difficulty, faced with a choice between two unsatisfactory options"
Sit outside and melt or blog less!

So I will be around when I can. Hope everyone is having a great week. I am having a wonderful time with my dad and we are enjoying the Olympics each evening. Deep down inside of me I feel that between Mammoth Lakes with no connection and being here with the low signal that God is telling me where to place my priorities right now. I can't argue with that!

I do think God is telling you that, Debby. I can't tell you how many times I'll have trouble loading a blog when it is past the time I allotted for blogging and is cutting into my time with God (Bible reading/prayer). I usually have gotten to the point when itis like that to say "yep,you're right Lord this is your time".

Enjoy your time with your dad; that is so much more precious than these blogs can be at times!
