I think I’m down in the pits lately. And maybe with good cause. Hmmmmm. All these huge disasters,
Well, that is a small thing compared to the floods and tornadoes in other parts of the
But I’m also thinking of the rise in the cost of fuel and food. We can weather it, but our friends in
I have several elderly relatives, all dear to me, who have some pretty touchy health issues. My mom is currently in the nursing home, where the plan is for her to get stronger and go back to the assisted living facility. My sister just realized yesterday that Mom can’t remember her assisted living apartment even though she has been away from there for only a few weeks.
Yes, there have been some good things happening. I was in a little art show. We attended three weddings where we got to see friends and relatives we haven’t seen for awhile. My eye infection has finally cleared up, although I’ve been left with some kind of allergies that affect my eyes. We attended our daughter’s college concert, and we will soon attend her graduation.
We will be traveling to the baptism of our second grandchild next weekend and seeing family again. I do have so much to look forward to.
I think that the early Easter, with its association with flowers, baby animals, spring, sun, etc. set up unrealistic expectations for me. Then after Easter, we had those snow storms. The grass is green, the tulips and daffodils are up, but not blooming, but the usual glorious May weather is taking its time arriving.
Jesus promised his followers that he would return. He is also, seemingly, taking His time returning. Did we understand His words incorrectly? Is He expecting something from us before He returns? Are we actually to follow the other things He said, not just sit and wait? We don’t have to look far to find people and situations where we can serve Him through serving them.
I guess I need to do more than just sit and wait for spring.
