Nancy. I wanted to find a way to use my time wisely and if this is the way then that is what I will do. The Bible says we are to "spur one another on to love and good deeds" (and spur means exactly that - an outburst - like getting a kick in the pants to wake us up and see what it is that we should be doing.
I found this while Meredith and I were helping the younger girls do their "Sunday School" lessons. It is on patience - entitled
"Waiting" - Author Unknown
I asked for health,
that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity,
that I might do better things...
I asked for riches,
that I might be happy;
I was given poverty,
that I might be wise...
I asked for power,
that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness,
that I might feel the need of God...
I asked for all things,
that I might enjoy life;
I was given life,
that I might enjoy all things...
I got nothing that I asked for -
but I got everything I hoped for.
Almost despite myself,
my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men,
most richly blessed.
Take care. - Rachel
