Daily Living... well, not really!!!

Daily living...not usually very bright, energy-filled words.   BUT they can be!  (Read what happens at the end of this blog!)

  Let us begin each day with that excited, expectant thrill that children look forward to opening presents.  Today is a GIFT FROM GOD!.  And we're just beginning to open the outside wrapping in the morning.

Like Abraham...
"And Abraham got up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:" Gen. 19:27

Like Moses...

"And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh;" Ex. 8:20

Like Joshua...
"And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD."  Josh. 6:12

Like Job...
"and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings"  Job 1:8

and MOST of all, like JESUS!

Now in the morning, having risen a        long while before daylight, He went   out and departed to a solitary place;    and there He prayed.  Mark 1:35   

From each of these passages there is a sermon in the context!   But since I'm not a preacher, I won't expound on them, and if you have the time, you'd be more blessed by looking it up yourselves anyway ...HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

THEN........ I wrote this blog this morning about "daily living"...and that each day was like a present to be opened.   Surprise!  My daily living took an unexpected turn when Earl saw water coming out from under the sink in the bathroom....the seeping quickly turned into a run, and just a minute before the City was able with Earl to shut off the water, it had become a fountain!  Thank God, it didn't happen in the night...AND the fountain was short-lived!  Praise God for strength and health for Earl and I to meet this unexpected turn!
