Logan hasn’t run away for over 48 hours!!! Of course every time she goes outside she bumps her nose into that gate to see if it will open. I guess she’s not entirely stupid…just very persistent. We’ll see if we can hold up our end. That sounds bad at our age…..
Moving on, I had a chance to rearrange and reorganize my space at work today…shouldn’t have that much fun at work. I know, I’m weird. I can’t help it. I’m not quite inspired enough to rearrange my cupboards yet, but I may get there!
Thought for the day
“My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live Him. You’re deeply rooted in Him. You’re well constructed upon Him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.” That is Colossians 2:6-7 from The Message.
I think these are words that a person would do well to review daily. What a start to your day…do what you know. You are already equipped, begin to take steps. If you’re like me, it’s easy to learn. I love to learn. I can go on a long time just soaking up things about the Lord, about prayer, about living the Christian life. But am I living it? Where does my faith hit the road and become the vibrant source of all that I say and do?
One of the sweetest things in life is to recognize that at the present moment I can let God have His way. I can practice in my attitude what I know from my study. I can set aside my irritation and treat that person with the grace that God has shown me. The Word that I read this morning applies to this very moment. When I obey, things change. I can see God work right before my eyes. These are a “few of my favorite things”.
Of course, even sweeter are my grandchildren….. 🙂
