On a different note, I have a tooth that is bothering me. Considering the bad experience I had the last time I went to the dentist, I am not a happy girl right now. Especially since it's the tooth that was JUST FINE, thank you very much! Until the dentist messed with it, that is!
Today has been stressful for me. Things have been building up. They're not big things, just a multitude of the little stuff that can get to a person after a while (at least this person). Hopefully I'll be over it by the morning, or tonight would be even better. This toothache isn't helping the situation, though. There's only such much Advil can do, you know? A little get-away would be nice, but that ain't gonna happen. I am taking a break from school next week, so maybe that will work just as well. We shall see.

OK, so I'm a little late on getting out an inaugural post, but that's no biggie, right? I don't know about you, but I still don't know what President Obama REALLY had to say, or the lady who recited a poem. All I remember from today's events is something. about making. music with wooden. spoons. and darning. a uniform. Heh? Maybe it's just me, I dunno. I did, however, enjoy the music beforehand with Yoyo Ma on the cello.
Other than that, I was disappointed in this "historical day". Maybe it takes too much to impress me. Again, I dunno. (I bet some of you hate that I say "dunno", dont'cha?) ;0) LOL! I'm a little stinker that way.

Daniel 2:20-22 "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him."
I know those verses are from Daniel, but they apply to the events in Esther also, as well as our current times.
I also wanted to share with you that I know God wants me to participate in this study. My home church is offering this study on Tuesday mornings, but that time wouldn't work for me, and I was very disappointed. Then a dear friend of mine mentioned that the church where she is attending is offering this study on Tuesday NIGHTS, so I told her to sign me up and I would go with her. Isn't God cool that way? Yes, He is!
One of the questions Beth asked in the first day's homework was, "What are you hoping for as you begin this study?" My answer: "I want to be able to hear God more clearly, see Him more vividly, and feel His touch more intimantly".
