I'm the Map!

If there's a place you gotta go, I'm the one you need to know, I'm the map. I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map. If there's a place you gotta get, I can get ya there I bet, I'm the map. I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm tha map, I 'm the mop, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'M THE MAP!

There is nothing worse than having a song stuck in your head at midnight while you are trying to go to sleep! No matter how hard I tried, I could still hear the little voice of Dora, "Who do we ask for help when we don't know which way to go?" And then it starts, the song, I'm The Map!!

Today, I am not sure which way to go. I have a side business that I need to make a lot of purchases for today. As I looked at the my list after midnight last night (remember I couldn't sleep thanks to Dora!), I was overwhelmed. Do I go to Sams? Do I go to Wal Mart? Do I go to all of the grocery stores to buy whatever is on sale? How can I make the best of my time without getting a ten and half month old and two and a half year old out of the car a million times. Where is the smartest place to buy everything I need and still make a profit from my business? I want to be smart and watch for bargains and get the best deal but I also need the best deal for time management too.

So this morning as simple and silly as it sounds, I heard Dora again! "Who do we ask for help when we don't know which way to go? The map! The map!"

James 1:5 If you need wisdom- if you want to know what God wants you to do- ask him, and he will gladly tell you.

Lord, please guide and direct me today. Help me to make good use of my time. I pray that you will give me wisdom in all that I do and please, please help my children to come into alignment with you. May they have sweet and calm spirits. Please help me to have a good day and make good decisions for my business. Thank you for placing this idea in my heart and giving me the tools to carry it out. I pray that I can make a profit to bless my family! And thank you so much for the cool weather!
