So many times I've read blog posts talking about how the everyday jobs around the house take up all of our time and we can't get to the good stuff........like sewing, and quilting, and knitting,....... and reading about sewing and quilting and knitting..........
This time it's my turn........I'm trying to get into the sewing room to cut out and piece the baby quilt for my Michigan client, but life keeps stepping inbetween. I don't mind though.
Like today, my brother, Jeff, called to tell me that he had gotten a flat tire on his pickup truck yesterday and had to leave it at work. He wanted me to take him out there to refill the tire temporarily and then follow him to the tire place for repair. HAPPY TO DO IT ! For all those years, 32 in total, I couldn't even DRIVE, let alone help my brother........'cuz he didn't even know where I was !
Praise the Lord for the mundane little things that are taken for granted ! You just can't imagine what your life would be like without them !
It's MY TURN !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
