Each morning our alarm on the radio awakens us with the screaming of a preacher.  I don’t know who he is because I immediately turn off the alarm.  It’s a little too early for  me so I reach over and touch Pam and tell her it’s time to get up.  I still have about 20 or 30 minutes to sleep.  She walks at the park each morning and needs a little wakeup time before she leaves for the park.  Every once in a while she will go back to sleep and this morning was one of those times.  This morning she dozed for a few minutes and as I started to awaken her she started laughing.  When she was fully awake, I asked her what was so funny.  She didn’t remember.  She will probably recall later in the day.

But, laughing is good.  It serves us in many ways.  It will relieve us of stress or just bring a brightness to our day.  Maybe she just needed a little brightness because I know there is no way I bring stress into her life…well, maybe sometimes.

I started this blog in February 2010 and the second blog was posted on February 12, 2010 “THREE THINGS TO DO EACH DAY.”  Those three things are CRY, MEDITATE, AND LAUGH.  I have found those actions work for me.

Last month Pam was helping Lyndsey decorate her new apartment in Austin.  She has a built-in desk and they decided it would look good, and give more space, if I would build shelving to sit on the desktop.  Lyndsey and I measured, measured, measured, and measured in order for me to draw plans and make the shelving unit.  I have drawn the plans, purchased the materials for the shelves.  Last night I cut all the pieces with my radial arm saw and tonight I will begin sanding.  After that, it will be time for assembling, staining, finishing, and hand rubbing.

Lyndsey will have knee surgery on Monday and we will be traveling to Austin on Sunday to be with her.  The shelving unit will not be finished, but I will complete the project next week after I leave Austin.  Pam will stay and do her nursing duties while  I return to work.  Then I will return to Austin to bring Pam home and also deliver the project.  After all the measuring and planning I am hopeful the shelves will fit just right.  It should fit because I measured twice and  cut once.  If they don’t, it may be time for CRYING, MEDITATION, AND LAUGHING.  All three will relieve the stress if the unit doesn’t fit.


With all three of these actions, we also need to cover all situations with prayer.  It never hurts to do a little singing.  There is one song that always fits, but I don’t  remember the title.  But some of the words, and the most important words, are:  HAVE A LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS.
