I know Spring and Summer are around because weekends are starting to get booked with events and outdoor chores.
Our Camino preparation has involved a lot of saying “no” to things as we try to stay true to our mission. In some ways we are missing out and others we are enjoying deep dive.
But the next five weeks will be filled with fun things that will likely cause us to break our routine.
Easter, Sarah’s move, visit from Brother, Mom and Dad’s 50th celebration, niece’s christening, and Isabel’s graduation are all wonderful things we get to celebrate before we leave.
How WILL we get it all done and still find time to get prepared? But I’d rather be busy at this point because otherwise the time might drag by!
One of the greatest evidences I see for the truth of the Bible is its reality. If this book were “processed” for mass consumption it would be a much nicer book with stories only of godliness leading to success and blessing. It would only have stories of evil being punished and the wicked would never win. The good guys would always be happy and content and the bad guys would always get their just rewards.
But the Bible isn’t like that. Good people die and die badly. Evil people seem to succeed at times. The good guys suffer with doubt and are flawed to the core. The bad guys sometimes act with faith and courage and even love.
Psalm 39 is like that in a way. David (the man after God’s own heart) is suffering and asks God to remind him how short his days and how meaningless his live truly is. If the Bible was faked this kind if stuff would surely have been edited out.
I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and salvation. I do not conceal your love and your truth from the great assembly.
Psalm 40 – 40 days until Camino.
We’re 41 days away from our trip and I’m learning how to blog.
