just a minute before I go shopping

Larry is golfing; Luke is at Miss Dorothy's; and I am patiently waiting for my BFF to come pick me up for a morning of shopping. It's peaceful in the house: the cats (Tiger and Kali) are snoozing on the rug in the living room, and our horse of a border collie is lounging on a chair (outside, of course).
Today I am praying that I will keep my eyes focused on Jesus, and that I will allow the world to become strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace. You just have to love old hymns.....
"Turn your eyes upon Jesus.....look full in His wonderful face....and the things of earth will grow strangely dim....in the light of His glory and grace."

I am a sucker for an old Baptist Hymnal. The kind we used in the small country church my family attended growing up. I used to think that was so outdated, given that we have such beautiful contemporary praise and worship these days. But I have begun to cherish those songs as I have gotten older: part of my heritage in the Lord.

Okay - I guess I'm running out of reflection time. May God be the God of my purse on this shopping trip!!
