I don't normally get into saying thigs like "thank God it's Friday". But today, thank God it's Friday. It's the earliest part of Friday, as it is 5:50 AM. My day lies before me. What will all happen on this day we have never had before? I wonder.
This has been a long set of weeks, and it's getting longer as each week passes by. My business has grabbed new "business", which I am now trying to schedule around my main goings on, namely that project at the Elderly care home for which I was hired.
So I have been asking a question of God ever since last night, when I went to look at yet another small project, which needs to be done soon. I asked God if I am getting greedy. I truly do not know the answer to that question, yet.
My trouble is, in order to complete this new project on time, I will have to take a week away from the large project. I have spoken with the project manager, and he told me the week I wanted to take off would be perfect, because it's going to be a slow work week at the site anyway (deer hunting season finds construction workers scattering to the four winds). Well, I am a deer hunter, too. So......
The fact is, I never take more than three or four of days for hunting, so it may SEEM like this will work out, but I am questioning if it really could, or if, as I mentioned before, I am getting greedy. I have less than three days to decide.
On the one hand, I could take the time at the large project, and get some major work done while no one is there to get in the way. That can truly be a problem with so many different contractors all working at the same time. That would be one option. The down side of that is, I can't get too much done anyway, because without the other contractors around, I can only do so much, before I need them to do their part in whatever area I am finishing. Hmmmm
Or, I could take the small project on, complete it quickly (and with a job well done, or it isn't worth doing), cash a large paycheck, and save for a trip I want to take next year. So, choices, choices, choices.
What is the reason I am telling you this? Because I am unashamedly asking for prayer, as I am also praying, asking for clarity of mind so that I do not make an uninformed, hasty, and unwise decision. There is a lot riding on this, or so it seems. It also seems as if God is helping me to make up for what was lost during the late summer, when work was scarce for whatever reason. But, this could all be smoke, too. I think too much, sometimes, don't I?
