Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? There is snow on the ground in my neck of the woods, but thankfully it isn’t snowing right now. Although it is cold, it is 25° in my neighborhood, this is normal for this time of the year, but because we’ve experienced above normal temperatures, I find the normal no longer works for me, I got used to the 40s° and I want it back. How quickly I adapt to the circumstances and things I like and enjoy and I’m afraid the reverse is also true about me. I do struggle to accept the circumstances I don’t like; I usually can’t wait for a miraculous disappearance of anything that makes me uncomfortable.
2020 has been uncomfortable. 2020 was too much of everything; too big, too long, too vengeful, just too much. I found myself sinking beneath the waves of 2020 and I realized that like Peter, I had taken my eyes off the Lord. How are you doing?
When there is an interruption in our routine, this reaction is almost predictable. We like our comfort. How are you doing, really?
We’ve seen the best and the worst of mankind in 2020. Instead of the standard of God’s Word, we made politics, BLM, and everything in between the standard, because to do less would certainly display, we lack the control, we think we possess. So, to pretend we have control of our circumstances, we argue, fuss and fight. How is your time with the Lord?
On another note, Christmas will not be the same this year, my family may have to eat air, because I don’t usually cook on Christmas Day and I’m not sure I want to change this tradition. In door dining has been cancelled and we live is a sub-zero climate, therefore outdoor dining is off the table, literally. I’ve told the family to familiarize themselves with the stove. How is your relationship with others?
I want normal back; I want to feel as if I have come control left. Well, I do some control, don’t I? I can control my behavior, my actions, my self and I can leave the rest to the Lord. How are you doing?
