You may be wondering why I decided on the title I chose. Well about 2 months ago I decided to become a runner. I am a very slow runner, otherwise known in the running world as a turtle. I am determined to become faster and maybe someday become a racer. Therefore, I chose breaks out of her shell. Join me on my journey. As this turtle breaks out of her shell.

The Lost Contact

Today did not start out as a good day for me. First, I wake up and find out that Anthony is still sick with a flu that I gave him :( that I probably picked up at the gym. Let me just stop right here and give a word of advice: If you work out at the gym and use the weights Please, Please make sure to wash your hands after using them, the gym's do not disinfect them. Second, I am putting in my contacts to drive the girls over to their first homeschooling class and I drop my contact. Now, mind you this IS my last pair of contacts. I think I can find it really easy!! Yeah, right!! I start looking and looking I can't find it anywhere!! So all of a sudden I start panicking. IT IS NOT HERE!! I cannot see without my contacts and glasses. And my glasses are put together with super glue. I start crying and thinking about every bad thing that has happened to me. I start talking to the Lord and asking him, "Why does all these bad things happen to me?" Do you not care? So I go back into the bathroom and I say, "Okay, Lord I know you can perform miracles, and you know I can't wear my super glue glasses because it will ruin my whole look!!" So something tells me "look underneath your contact lense case." Sure enough there it was!!! I did my praise the lord dance I was so excited. Isn't our Lord amazing? Something so simple and He says hey I am here, I do care about you, and I will take care of you. Needless to say He turned my whole day around. God is Good!!
