At this season in my life, I am having to lay down my 'do or get out of my way' attitude and allow God to teach me that His work is perfect.
I have heard the scripture quoted from many a pulpit, for many a year, but for the first time in my life I am beginning to understand what Jesus meant when He said, "All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son, except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light." Matt 11:27-30when the time comes."
How gracious God is! I complain because I want my complete 'to-do' list, and God is mercifully handing me a few at a time. He doesn't want to overwhelm me with all of them at once. I am very slow to learn... sometimes.

This picture sums up my life right now.
Sitting and waiting.
There is no power within me to cause the light change any quicker. Beating on my horn, stomping my feet on the floorboard or screaming at the top of my lungs won't help. It might make me feel better for a moment, but most likely I would wind up injuring myself during the tantrum. (Yes, I speak from past experience.) So I wait. I trust that the One who created this waiting time for me knows what is best.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to

Our dear friends taught us a new card game a few weeks back. Unfortunately for them, we love the game and want to play ALL of the time! To keep things from heating up between couples, we diffused the situation by having the wives pair up and the husbands pair up.
Poor husbands! Since the inception of the competition the husbands have never taken the lead. We have tied a few times, but the wives have always prevailed. (Webster says, to prevail means to prove more powerful than opposing forces; be victorious) I think that about sums it up.
We decided to take our game on the road. We were flying to another state for a four day get-away and passed the time playing a friendly game of Skipbo in the airport lounge.
(I'm the one with the camera.)
The husbands tied things up 15 - 15 with a win that morning.
But the wives have since taken the lead (AGAIN.)
