Do you remember how cold it was yesterday? I know today felt colder with the wind, but yesterday was cold. Fortunately, we had some good help both here and in Des Moines to move Megan into her apartment. I actually only had to be in charge of the door…and “ground level” can be a little deceiving…up probably 10 steps outside and down maybe 8 inside. She is in a nice 1 bedroom apartment at the end of the hall next to the laundry room and close to everything. It is only about 1 block to work, maybe a mile or mile and a half to her second job, with Target, Hy-vee, and a mall in between…so much for the long commute.
We will miss seeing her often, but we are very relieved to not have her on the road every day. Jon is taking calls for one of the other guys this weekend, and I might be heading to the city tomorrow for a short trip…don’t know yet for sure.
Thought for the day
How do we learn to care about the things God cares about? How do we get ourselves to step away from our own interests enough to see through God’s eyes? I think we don’t realize how small our whole world is in the scope of all that God is doing. I’m not laying a guilt trip on anyone. God understands what we’re made of and how we think. I think we would be encouraged if we could crawl into His skin and see through His eyes that He really does care about the smallest details of our lives. But we would maybe see them playing out on a bigger canvas and having more layers than we dreamed. I think we would be able to be more patient to see “results”, more willing to leave the end and the process in His hands and let Him work. How can we put this into practice?
