Yes, it it Friday, so think THURSDAY’S THOUGHTS ON FRIDAY MORNING. 😀
Thursday was just too good to not give special notice to. I had been notified that we would be having guests come about 10:30 so I carefully set the alarm for three hours to prepare for them. Woke before the alarm sounded. I think I can get ready in two hours. Slept another hour.
Up about eight or so. Bible reading. Whoa, now. Hezekiah. He always makes me mad. So good and God blessed. But he was a show-off at the end. The prophet said destruction would come but not in his (Hezekiah’s) day. Hezekiah said, “Oh, goodie, goodie. It won’t happen in my day.” I’ll leave the kids to reap my sin. Now you see why I don’t like him!
Well, one of his kids, Manasseh, was watching, waiting, learning. He learned to be a scoundrel, and reestablished idol worship, even to the point of sacrificing his own son to Baal, I think. He was a treacherous king. But, lo and behold, he was not out of God’s reach. God caused him to be taken captive by the Assyrians. While in exile God reached out to him and Manasseh responded to God. A great story about wickedness and redemption.
Oh, it’s time to get serious about my company coming. Do my morning routine, put away dishes, fold kitchen towels, take meds, check the mirror. I’ll get by but I did do the best I could with myself.
See the picture of the dish towels. I have about three dozen stacked handily between microwave and refrig. They wash and do-over. Far less expensive and more useful than paper towels. Picture 1
Ty, Laura, Jonah, Micah, Aaron came. They had time to eat lunch with us. So in with the Chicken Express meals. Ty is my nephew via Verna, my sister who died about three years ago. She was one of the best people I have ever known. Tyler was smart enough to choose a wife much like his mother. Ty and Laura are instant in season and out for quick hugs, prayers, and blessings. Jonah and Micah were so helpful to me. Aaron spent more time in the “hang out” room so I did not see him as much but he also has the family traits. Picture 2
I went to the Center for my walking after they left. Met my goal for the week, that is about five miles – five miles a week, not a day!!!
Came home worn out, largely because of construction work on one of our major streets. An ongoing situation that will last months or perhaps years. Laying a new road to connect to a Turnpike, I think. Anyway, I was disgruntled by the time I got home. Went to sleep. That’s when I could have done Thursday Thoughts in time for you to read them on Thursday. 😀
The last picture is that of an empty container. See the white bits. That’s what I left of ReNee’s home made ice cream. Not a bad way to start closing up shop tonight. Picture 3
Didn’t get much blogging done today, reading, writing, or commenting. Putting you on hold. Hoping to do better with this fantastic hobby/vocation the Lord has assigned me to.
Giving Him praise, and giving you thanks. Good night on Thursday night.
