blessings disguised as cutbacks

sometimes the thing you complain and whine about the most can turn out to
be the thing you need the most without even realizing it...
take today for example:

i got to work at seven,
and promptly found that i had very little work to do for the day so,
the powers that be decided that to cut back on payroll they were going to send me home at noon.

now, typically, i get extremely annoyed by the fact that they can cut back on my hours anytime they want
without any warning to me, and today was without exception except for the fact that i was extremely tired for some reason.
so i kept myself busy until noon and left and suddenly got a pounding headache when i stepped out into the
pouring spring rain.

so, because my day was scaled back to half day i got to go home and take a lovely two hour nap to ward off having to take
my dreaded migraine medicine, instead of working with a splitting headache until it got so bad i had no choice but to
drive home with a piercing migraine at four pm.

sometimes God knows what we need even though it might not be what we might think we want.
today was one of those days...and even though we need the money from those missing hours,
it just gives us one more thing to trust God about, and that's always a good thing.
