Playing Catch Up

The new washer/dryer were finally working this afternoon and ever since I have been getting every single piece of dirty clothing in the house, both upstairs and down, washed and dried and folded. Putting the piles away will be up to them. I have one load left -- yeah, it's late. But I wanted to have it all done before leaving for California tomorrow. Looks like I should make it.


Some capsulizations (don't look now, but I may have just coined a word...) -- just so you know my thoughts on certain things:

1. God is God. He decided to give us the responsibility of choice which results in obedience or disobedience, responding or disregarding, calling on His name or rejecting such a privilege. That's called free will. That's how He decided to do it.

2. God is God. He reigns over all, causing His will to be accomplished. That's called the Sovereignty of God. That way He gets the final say (hooray!)

3. God is a Mystery. That's why we have a free will and He has Sovereignty. If you figure it out, let me know. I may or may not agree with your conclusions...

4. There is not a single soul on this planet who will live a life free from pain inflicted by others. Sin abounds. If we don't learn how to get free from the residue of wounds we accrue, we will live in bondage. Guaranteed. It's not His plan for us. He paid for our freedom and healing. Paid in full.

5. Acting in pretense before God and others will not suffice. We must have real love, passion, and devotion. Lord, help me to live with a single heart toward You.

6. Some day we will all be in heaven (if we call upon His name...) That will be a day worth waiting for!


Tomorrow we take Julia to California. She competes on Tuesday. Keep an eye on the rest of my kiddos, those of you still in the North Country. I will miss them!
