Today's Music Monday (though a bit late) is a nod to tomorrow being the first day of summer.
But before I get to that, here's a quick update on the state of things here...
I've mentioned before that whenever we have a particularly bad day, DH and I watch and/or listen to "A Midsummer Night's Dream". It seems to be spot on for this midsummer day, since today was positively rotten. Nothing went the way it was supposed to. :( As a result of today's non-productiveness, as well as the issues it seems to have brought to light, I have even more on my plate than ever before.
Children's Health Care of Atlanta to have her broken wrist (happened Friday) seen about. We're not sure if it can simply be set in a cast (this is what we all hope and pray for) or if (God forbid) she has to have surgery and be put under anesthetic so an orthopedic surgeon (who undoubtedly makes 100x our combined annual salary; I am clearly in the wrong line of business) can set it and then put it in a cast.
I think another " :( " goes here.
God is in control. Period. I have to trust Him. He has blessed us with extended family who is willing to drop everything and help us out however they can. I know that if we lived far away, like in another state or something, that these trials would be infinitely harder to handle; in fact, we may have sunk a long time ago, if that were the case.
Every single one of the issues that I am facing right now can- and will- be dealt with. I'm strong, smart, and submissive to the Lord's will. I am willing to trust Him and see what sorts of amazing things He does! And what's more, I will praise His name the entire time!!!
So in honor of summer, dear readers, here is Vivaldi's "Summer" movement, from "The Four Seasons" Violin Concerto. I hope your summer is going well!
PS- I found this beautiful work of art that I had to share. It's titled "Instant of Summer" by Red-feniks on Deviantart.com
