Odds and Ends of Wednesday
Wednesdays are busy, my grandchildren come over
with their Moms. We do a Bible Study together on
most Wednesdays. This Wednesday we won't,
everyone in my family here, and my grandchildren
and their Moms and Dads all have colds. I know that
colds are caused by a virus but I can't help but blame
it on the erratic temperatures. Sunday we had a 90 degree
day, Monday it was raining and the high was in the 60s.
Today we will be back up to 80 but by the weekend back
to the 60s and possibly more rain. The snow level keeps
dropping so it is just weird. I have lived in California my
whole life and there aren't to many years I remember it
raining in May. In a normal year, we don't get much rain
Even so it is still beautiful outside. In the morning, I can
walk around in a sweatshirt and shorts and pretend I am at the
Since I only have two days of school left, I have been planning
my summer schedule. So far nothing concrete. I would like to get
back to my walking schedule, that has fallen by the wayside this
year with kids going off in different directions and I have this
hang up about being around when they leave the house.
I like to be able to tell them I am praying for them and I

thinking I would like to go back and read all of Corrie Ten Booms books.
I was also thinking about reading about Hudson Taylor and George Mueller.
I was thinking that I have got into a slump and I have allowed my God to get
to small. I need to be able trust a big God for impossible things.
I want to get back to expecting the unexpected.
I have this written down in my journal and it fits today, "When I have
moments of drought or unbelief or even if I think I have sinned
so much, that God can't possibly forgive me
one more time. I am responding with my finite mind.
My Father who is always there with these words, not in
condemnation, but a voice filled with love, acceptance, and
all that I need to hear,"
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither your ways my ways,"
declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so
are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your
thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8-9)
Then I realize, It is enough.
Have a lovely Wednesday.
