Milk Bottles

Two friends would like your prayers: 
Bev (surgery 4.22) 
Melinda (healing from a fall)


I walked passed our bed; it was unmade; ah it’s 2:45 just leave it. No, not going to do it; beds sleep better when the wrinkles of the night before have been smoothed away. So I did. img_7042

And now I’m here, telling on myself. πŸ™‚

I started my day earlier than usual. A good thing. Then I derailed myself. Dreaming.  I started out with a valid purpose looking for away from home lodgings and then my looking went AWOL! That’s how the bed was still unmade at 2:45. At first I was discouraged, telling myself look at all that time you wasted dreaming about stuff that’s not gonna happen. Nope! Not going there. ABBA, You can do anything! And if You will these dreams can be and will be real. And if not all is still well.

Earlier it was raining. Now the sun is shining. The house is mostly quiet except for the sound of the washer; late but not too late to start a load of towels. 

So what’s all this rambling? 

Start where you are. The milk is spilled. We can’t put it back in the bottle but we can clean it up and pour a new glass whatever time of day it is! 

21 But in my mind I keep returning to something,
something that gives me hope β€”
22 that the grace of Adonai is not exhausted,
that his compassion has not ended.
23 [On the contrary,] they are new every morning!
How great your faithfulness!
24 β€œAdonai is all I have,” I say;
β€œtherefore I will put my hope in him.  [source Lamentations 3 CJB]

Again I say start where you are. The milk is spilled. We can’t put it back in the bottle but we can clean it up and pour a new glass whatever time of day it is! 

. . .  Indeed, the β€œright time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. [source 2 Corinthians 6:2 NLT]

To paraphrase: right now is the time to save this day! Fret not about what was but start right now to redeem what is! 

Perhaps I’m not the only one who really likes this! I am helped. I am smiling! Big! πŸ™‚

You should too. JESUS loves you. And you can start again right now!

Pass the milk please! πŸ™‚
