Nope, it's not Friday today.

All day yesterday I kept referring to tomorrow {which is today...stay with me now} as Friday! That can really throw a girl off! Last night was an alone night. Eugene went to UD to watch some high school basketball, so I stayed home, went on a run with Espn, ate cereal for dinner {I know, I gave up giving it up - don't hate me for it}, worked on a project for baby niece, and ran to the store for milk and baby shower necessities. Got a lot done, but I never stopped, so no relaxing or winding down. Oh well, maybe someday my list will be empty!

My wondrous thing yesterday was absolutely a phone call at lunch with my sister. She has an amazing way of making me smile and laugh while I'm crying about challenges. She has such a strong and deep heart, and I'm so thankful for the way she shares it with me.

Tonight my college roomie, Melissa, is coming to visit for a late dinner. I'm so looking forward to seeing her! She's the sweetest thing - the definition of a gentle spirit. Slow cooker salsa chicken with brown rice and corn is on the menu. Recipe to come {hopefully.}

Our devotion last night was on Psalm 34. I love this chapter, and I bolded the particular phrases that spoke to me.  

Psalm 34

Of David. When he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he left.

1 [a] I will extol the LORD at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.

2 My soul will boast in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

3 Glorify the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together.

4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.

5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.

8 Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

9 Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.

10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

11 Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12 Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,

13 keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking lies.

14 Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their cry;

16 the face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
to cut off the memory of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.

18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 A righteous man may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all;
20 he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.

21 Evil will slay the wicked;
the foes of the righteous will be condemned.

22 The LORD redeems his servants;
no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.
