Some Things Are Written in Stone

Aaron via Brandon T.D.         That’s how the saying goes, but obviously…there are some exceptions! true-friendsHow about this one? Do you like it? I do.  Mike and I picked up Alan at the airport this afternoon, and I must say, it’s great to have Alan join us, if even for just a few days!! Why? Because, even though it’s possible to be apart, it’s hard. True friends can endure being apart, but they really want to spend time together every day if they can, right?DSC00543God created us for communion, & I hope we feel the same desire to be with Him.Sunrise over Pacific OceanYesterday, Mike and Grace’s pastor read this beautiful quote by Charles Spurgeon: “The morning is the gate of the day, and it should be well guarded with prayer. It is one end of the thread on which the day’s actions are strung, and should be well knotted with devotion. If we felt the majesty of life we should be more careful of its mornings. He who rushes from his bed to his business and waiteth not to worship is as foolish as though he had not put on his clothes, or cleansed his face, and as unwise as though he had dashed into battle without weapons or armor. Be it ours to bathe in the softly flowing river of communion with God, before the heat of the wilderness and the burden of the way begins to oppress.”Misty Sunrise over Pacific Is the discipline of devotion difficult in the midst of your frenetic flight thru life?Michael instructing Family The “written in stone” way to find the guidance and grace we need is through daily communing with our Father: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8).Pacific Sunrise               Are you communing daily with God and abiding in the Light?

“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18).

  1. Kathy, This is simply beautiful and so true! After a “frenetic” week, how I needed this reminder today. The week was filled with work and the weekend packed with one event after another. All good things, ending with a beautiful outdoor wedding. My only safe haven was my one-hour commute to work, in which I fill the time with prayer, music, and audio Bible. But there is nothing like sitting in worship on the porch or in my chair, and flipping those pages “by hand”. Of which I’m doing this morning!
    Thank you for imparting truth on a continuum, and just when I need it!

    • Thank you for adding to this post so beautifully! There have been times when my “quiet time” was just the same…audio Bible, prayers, and singing along with a worship CD. But, how true it is that the most restorative is undistracted quiet time! Sounds like a wedding in the family? Who? Congratulations!!!

      • Haha, the wedding was the easy part! We just attended (Sunday) and it was quite fun! My son’s best friend, beautiful outdoor venue. The other was two straight weekends of hospital call, brutal. Plus, work during the week and a big missions event we help with on Saturday. Three days off and I’m just chillin’ as they say. And cleaning! 🙂

      • Bless you! Sounds like a lot of really happy and hard stuff. Glad you’ve got some days off to get caught up!

  2. So glad you can be with Mike and Grace and see the new baby Armstrong as well as the other three littles cuties!
    Love
    Sarah
