Out of my mess

This morning I made my bed,made breakfast, went to market....only to come home and realize I forgot something.  I make lists,but forget to add a few things. I sat down and read my bible.
Psalm 130 : 1-2 jumped out at me.  "Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
O Lord,hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
To my cry for mercy"

I chewed on this as I fixed lunch,made Brown for tomorrow's guests and did more dishes. The sink seems a forever fountain of dishes,the laundry a never ending valley of dirty clothes. I moved on to vacuuming the patio,and ended with a quick vacuum of living room. 

My own translation reads..."Out of my mess I cry to you my Lord.  So much to get done and that's just what I remember.  Help me to make time for you and others who need a phone call or encouraging word. Give me strength to have grace when husband is not feeling well and answers out of his pain and frustration.  Keep my mouth shut when needed and my feet swift to do your will. Teach what i need to do,and let go of other stuff. Have mercy on me,oh my Lord."
