Another rainy Tuesday. Well, almost rainy.
The cat has already edited what I wrote by walking across the keyboard. I was tempted to leave it but decided that wasn’t the best option.
The room was stuffy, so I opened the window a few inches. That keeps the cat distracted for a while. If the furnace kicks in, the window goes down.
I made a loaf of bread from a mix over the weekend. It was actually pretty good. Not a large loaf, which is fine. Bread can tempt me. I overeat fresh bread – with butter slathered over a thick slice…
See what I mean? Temptation.
I don’t have a lot to share again. I think I am in a time of more thinking than writing. I tell myself I need to finish working on the apartment, and then I can get serious again with any of my writing. On the 30th of this month, it will be six months since I moved here. I’m still sorting and deciding what to keep or get rid of. But I’ve also started hanging things on the walls, and it is beginning to look more like a home and less like a motel room.
It takes me a long time to decide what will work, and even then, I usually make many changes. But it will eventually get done. And, by fall, things, especially furniture, will be moved again. I like change.
One thing I can count on that doesn’t change is God. His love for me is everlasting. His promises of eternity don’t change. His Truth never changes.
Hanging on to His never changing attributes enables me to live a life of peace and comfort offered by the Holy Spirit, and joy in the salvation gift from Jesus.
Life can be full of surprises. The world is a mass of chaos. But in its midst, we can stand firm on the foundation God has given us.
That is powerful. Believe in it. Hang onto it with all you are.
Take some time to relax in God’s provision. Have a hot cup of tea, and breathe as deeply as you are able to breathe.
You. Are. Loved.
