life as it is seen from my heart and soul

storms…. & obedience

Leave a comment

oh this weather. it is crazy. people say well, we do live in Ohio, but this year has been interesting. much like life. oh the storms ~ work, kids, house, cars, job, people drama, stupidity, and so much more. but it is the Sabbath day. watching early morning church and listening about being obedient. that even in the storms to live in obedience to Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit. that we all choose to either be obedient or not. the world will not change, the evil one is after us all, and we choose to obey.  i think of what my therapist used to pray – oh Lord, help her to be obedient and not sacrifice anything. that is I Samuel 15: 22. “But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.”   Two big words that people don’t like today ~ Obedience and Submission.
I am rereading several books. Hinds Feet on High Places i read every year. oh i am such a Much Afraid. quivering, trembling, anxious, woe-is-me. i hate that i am like her. it is so very apparent to me with what i deal with at work. so right now i am trying to be more obedient. ride the bike after dinner, no television, reading/writing more, more quiet time and some other things. because my time is short and i have wasted enough on this world.
in other news, my birthday was this past week. how does this happen? that you keep going every day and then one day you are an old lady? i mean, really? so the prime of my life has past? and i am approaching the 3rd act of my life? holy moly. what happened? i mean, i have too many things to do. there is too much yarn to use up, too many books to read, too many thoughts to write out. like why does my body not cooperate with me? I am a well educated nurse, but really???? and why doesn’t anyone talk about sex at this age? **blush** don’t ask me because i can’t talk about it without turning red. and no one talks about how your brain turns to mush – like a sieve with huge holes. retention of facts is out the door!!! and if you get on the floor there has to be a plan for getting off the floor!!! and my attitude totally sucks – like i have become negative. don’t get me wrong, I am enjoying this stage – but i miss the other stages. and darn, i wish i knew then what i know now!!!!
February is coming to a close – i pray for Spring, but yes, this is Ohio. so don’t plant anything too early!!!!
