Monday Bullets (Sorry for list making tendency these days)

  • I was asked to perform the song "Unforgettable" at a 30th wedding anniversary celebration Saturday night - a top-notch couple who are such a great example were honored by many. It was such fun to sing with a band. I do so enjoy it. But you probably knew that...
  • My brother and his wife spent the weekend. We didn't get to visit much, between their busy plans and our own, but we chatted for an hour or so before their departure. Family is wonderful and I so appreciated seeing them. I pray they were blessed and strengthened with words of wisdom and encouragement. I know I was encouraged by our visit! They are dear to me.
  • Read about the woman with the issue of blood (Luke 8.43-48). I love how Jesus isn't undone by crediting her action of faith (faith without works is dead) for her healing. He isn't afraid that His part in it will be diminished, He is not jealous of getting due credit. Instead He points out her part in it; her action of faith was noted ("Who touched me?"), as was the centurion's act of faith in Matthew 8. ("Go your way, and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.") Jesus acknowledged the man's faith and the part it played. Jesus doesn't seem caught up with fear that someone is trusting faith and not Him, for indeed, the faith is focused on Him. He knows that. That is all that is needed. We are so worried about semantics. We are so judgmental. Let's encourage faith, strengthen faith. Let's not make faith such a scary thing. ("What if my faith is misplaced? What if I've said this wrong? What if I'm taking credit for this? What if..." -- we've just "what iffed" them right out of simple faith!)
  • Off to take a shower. Looking for motivation to do some plain ol' physical labor and check some things off my list. Oh, don't worry. My list isn't ruling my life. In fact, I've been too readily setting it aside for days now. Time to buckle down. Do you suppose the shower will help? ;)
