Mid-July and I'm knee deep in alligators! This weekend is our American Legion Officer Installation and next month is our 3rd annual celebration of "Keep the Spirit of '45 Alive" honoring WWII Veterans. I am also job-hunting and just came from a weekend trip to Fredericksburg then followed that with a weekend of American Legion State Convention events. The infamous "they" say that the devil is in the details and at this point I have had alot of details going on. WRhat has impressed me most in the past month or so of preparations is how much the Good Lord has protected me from that devil! The trip to Fredericksburg was fun and relaxing. The Convention allowed me to meet a new friend and visit with old ones. Plans that seemed to get thwarted worked to my advantage...well, except for lunch in the bar and a broken elevator! I'm watching things come together for installation and look forward to getting to work on some old and new projects this year. As I head into August, the Spirit of '45 is also falling into place as the guest speaker I was really hoping to have come is able to share her incredible story. I think the Lord has put the devil on the run...again...and I'm so grateful! Running yourself crazy today? Give it to God and let Him dazzle you!
