"D, come on. Wake up. It's a beautiful morning. Let's head outside for a bit and you and I spend some time together."

Ugh. I checked the alarm clock. Five-thirty in the morning. I was wide awake but it was way too early to wake up.

"Give me fifteen minutes," I begged sleepily. But fifteen minutes turned into twenty, then thirty, and before I knew it, Toby Keith was serenading me from my clock radio. I checked the time. Six-oh-two. Time for one more snooze before I rushed into the day's routine.

"Help, Lord. You gotta help me through this day." It was barely nine o'clock and already a heap of problems threatened to ruin my day.

"I'm here," I heard His voice answer. "This is why I wanted to meet with you this morning. I thought we could talk about your day. I had some beautiful promises I wanted to share with you, and I wanted to remind you of my love for you. I just wanted to be with you for a while."

Ah...Toby Keith. I'm seeing him in concert on the 17th in Kansas City. We've got 8th row center seats...I can't wait!
