Hmmm...pretty busy day, huh?

In the midst of all this busy-ness, I am reminded of a verse I read this morning:  Proverbs 19:21, "Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
    but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails."

I also have been kind of struck by this song that we are singing for County Chorus (for Christmas), it's called  "Would I Miss the Miracle?" and it's kind of convicting...or at least a reminder to not get so caught up in day to day craziness that I miss what is truly important.  Here's an audio of the song:                 
Hmmmm, if that link above doesn't work, you can listen on this page: http://listeninglab.stantons.com/title/would-i-miss-the-miracle/454266/
