Daffodils are blooming everywhere in Southern California, and along our driveway.
I begin with distressing news.
Our son left today. It didn't work out for him to live here. I pray God will watch over him. He only has $50.00. But most important, I pray that God will place some Christians in his life who will guide him.
Which brings me to the thought...Could I be standing next to someone tomorrow who needs guidance and help? As I pray for help for my son...I need to be aware of the Spirit's leading in my own life...to be available to others—to be an answer to someone's prayer for their loved one.
How can I expect others to help my son, when I am not willing to help others?
I'm a little shy to "talk" too much about my son...so I will get on to something else.
I went for 2 walks today. One with a friend, and later with my husband.
Do you know what my most precious possessions are? My relationships with family and friends. And with the economy how it is, its comforting to know that lack of money will not take these away. My mother is a great spiritual support to me. And a walk with a friend is worth a million bucks.
Speaking of relationships...we are truly rich. Because the Creator of the universe desires to have a relationship with us.
A few other things...
In one week, my youngest son will turn 18. He's having some friends over for a barbecue. We are in the middle of a series of rain storms, so I hope its clear on Saturday.
On this current weekend, I have three days of "no school". Since the weather is cold and wet, I stopped by the library, and thought I'd browse around. I came across the DVD's. Wow...a good idea for a rainy day. I came home with the movie Music and Lyrics as well as a PBS series on the Revolutionary war, and a DVD tap dancing lesson! If I can't square dance...I'll tap dance. (I used to tap dance in college.)
I made Mozart watch Music and Lyrics with me on Valentines Day. He wasn't expecting it to be very interesting....but he actually liked it. We both did! When Mozart and I first met, we wrote a few songs together. He did the music, and I did the lyrics....so it brought back some memories!
"Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house.
You give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light , we see light." Psalm36:7b - 9
