A few thoughts this morning:
#1. I hate forgetting my camera over a busy week/weekend. I have no good pictures to show you! You'll have to settle for the mediocrity of photography I am about to put in this post...
We look like sketchy goons.
#1. Was any Coloradan (Coloradite? Coloradese?) duped into planting their gardens yet? We have 8 INCHES of snow sitting in our yard from yesterday. Enough already!! I am super jazzed to get my garden beds ready, dang it, and get our flock of chickens!
(Woops. Two #1's. Act natural...)
#2. Read this. What in the world do they even talk about??
#3. This awesomely cool face brought to you by a random book from The Tattered Cover bookstore. I wish I looked this good but alas I have no cool hat and am instead cooped up studying my brain outs.
#4. One particularly large research paper is stealing my life away at the moment, but have no fear. I still know gentle readers like yourself come to see meaningful photos like this...
Errr....not sure what's happening here.
My husband is probably the sketchy mastermind behind it...
Oh and a more serious #5. I forgot this sweet habit for a while but then remembered it this morning. I think it's really neat to read a Proverb a day correlating with the calendar date. So this morning I read Proverbs 10 since it's the 10th of April and all. See how that works? Aren't you glad I'm here to explain these complicated things to you?
Anyway, check out this stuff:
The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow to it.
Ok hold up. In the margins of my Bible I literally wrote: "SO confused..." I'm wrestling with this verse because our life isn't really marked by this lately. In no way do I want to be rich and wealthy but it does make me question what the "blessing of the Lord" means. Particularly that part about having no sorrow. Because we had a lot of sorrow last year. Like A. LOT. So did that mean the Lord's blessing was not on us because this verse tells us his blessings adds no sorrow?
Or is that just confirmation that Crohn's is not from the Lord. It's a result of a broken world and not anything a good God would dish out? More like the inventions of the stupid devil.
Enlighten me if you know anything about this. It's a good struggle to have this morning, to wonder about these complex words and realize how little my brain comprehends initially when scripture is involved.
Ok I think that's all.
Hope you're having a great Wednesday and week! What have you been up to? Fill us in!
P.S. Is is more weird that I have hot rollers in like an old woman? That this is my reflection in a teapot? Or that I shared this photo at all? I warned you!!! This is what happens when I forget my camera...
