I can’t walk Danny today because it is raining, and raining, and RAINING! There are flood and wind advisories out.
I stayed up too late last night.
My Hebrew class gets over at 11 p.m. I enjoy the class. It is taught by a woman who is also learning Hebrew–she is taking a class using the same book. She is just farther into the book than we are. If we ask questions that she doesn’t know, she asks her Hebrew teacher. Also, sometimes people join the class that have greater knowledge of the language, and they are able to help us. We do a lot of reading and learning vocabulary words. It is very helpful and fun to have others to study with.
When I was young, I read a story about a blind dog. He was able to roam free in his house and yard because he had such a good memory that he never bumped into anything more than once. If he bumped into anything, he’d avoid it from that point on. This worked fine for permanent things like trees or buildings, but the problem is that some items aren’t permanent. Sometimes a chair wasn’t pushed up to the table, or or a rake was not put away, or a car was in the driveway and then drove away. If the dog bumped into it, he’d avoid that place from them on, so as he walked across the room or house, he’d weave a curious path around things that weren’t there.
Family has always been important to me, and I have always wanted to get married and have kids. I have never had any ambition to climb the corporate ladder. Even though I excelled at school and work, I felt like a replaceable cog at work. My “real” life always began when I left work and went home. I am completely fulfilled at home.
Today I thought I’d tell you the true story of how God taught me how much He loves me.
I began attending church when I was 2 years old when a neighbor took me. I honestly do not remember a time when I did not love God and want to walk with Him. If anyone had asked me if I knew that Jesus loves me, I would have exclaimed, “ABSOLUTELY!”
A year or so ago, a ministry leader posted on his Facebook page that he didn’t like people who “back up everything they believe with Bible verses.” He disdainfully called them “Bible worshippers.”
Morning came too early. I stayed up until about 2 a.m. writing. Yeah, yeah, I shouldn’t have done that, but I have found that if my mind is busy with thoughts, I will be unable to sleep until I write about them. So I came downstairs and wrote, and didn’t finish until 2 a.m. Groan.
