I’ve been hesitant to join a “coffee share” talk because if you happened to have coffee at my house it would be because my husband made it for you. Can I still be your friend? He drinks it quite regularly (Re-rooted Englishman that he is.) No hot tea unless a member of his family visits. That doesn’t happen much any more. But I’m drinking tea. Sweet tea from KFC. Terribly sweet. I thin it with instant tea and lemon-aid.
I learned something about myself today. The Rams/Saints NFL game was on with about 15 min left to play. Rams was 10; Saints 20. I did not care one whit about which team won; I don’t even know anybody who cared. What I found was that I like to see anybody be successful. Every play by either team, I rooted for. I like that. I think that shows up the teacher in me. Might be part of the reason I “like” almost every blog I read. I like to see people try. Those who already have skills, good for you. Let’s go with your honed abilities. Those who are weak in communication skills, how much I admire your wading out into these blogging waters with all these real, even professional, writers and authors. Read more, write more, achieve more, you’ll get better. Why would I not “like” you.
I owe many of you an apology today. I read very little. I think there are bloggers who left me likes today without my getting back to you. I will, however, get most before the night is over.
There were only five of us in my class this morning (very cold). But we had good participation; it was well worth the time. Isaiah 30 and 31. God did not like it that his people were looking to Egypt for help. They were to seek Him for the help they needed. How is that different, or is it different, than what our country does now when our leaders seek out “alliances” with other countries? Stimulating question. Does God want nations to be isolationists? I don’t think so; it is largely a matter of motivation and attitude. Actually God does not even want us to depend on ourselves for victory; he tells us not to look to “chariots and horses.” Super power that we may be, it is only in as far as we depend on, acknowledge, and give thanks to our Lord God.
I have a birthday coming up Thursday. You will be hearing more about that. This blog is long enough for coffee share. I’m outta here. Sunday hugs to you all.
