Jan. 23, 2012 Snow day
Well, it’s not actually a snow day here in the Seattle area**, it’s a ‘recover-from-the-snow-and-ice-and-wind-damage-day’ so there is no school.
And, since I’m a teacher, blessed me, there’s oodles of extra time from the Time Keeper, my Heavenly Father, to do what He’s called me to do–write to you.
**we rarely if ever get weather like this, so for the skeptical among you, here are a few pictures….
It’s the beginning of the year and I’m plowing through the Pentateuch.
Our pastor taught his way through the book of Genesis last year and I decided to keep on going. I’m all the way up to the book of Numbers…..(numbering things, a LOT of things).
While I was reading my way through Exodus, I noticed something about God’s daily provision of Manna for his children (Chapter 16):
(You know what I mean, someone else is always sharing what the Holy Spirit showed them, praying for people with power and conviction, etc. You figure if you just hang out next to them it’ll rub off and make you ‘cool by association’, so you’re off the hook to find something for yourself.)
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?”
