I've not blogged in a very long time. Mostly because the computer refused to let me in to the site. I have learned not to argue with the computer - it always wins and it won't even argue back. Life is something like that. If we refuse to waste our time arguing, life become much more simple. In the past few months I am still in a recovery period from the back surgery I had. The inability to do what I want to do has had a salubrious effect. I no longer want to do the things I cannot do, so I don't even try. This is much more restful and the best thing to come out of this is that I have spent a great deal of time talking to God and best of all, listening to him. My life with Him has grown apace. I hear him much more clearly now and am totally willing to do the things He wants me to do. It is hard for me to pick up a book to read that does not concern my growing depth in Christianity, and wouldn't you know it? These books just seem to fall into my hands.
I will begin teaching the prophetic book of Ruth later this summer. All these years, and I didn't even know it was prophetic. I am no longer surprised at all I don't know, but I am soaking God up much like a starving person.
In other, much less important, things, we leave for Houston and Lake Jackson tomorrow to be with extended family and to celebrate Uncle Oliver's 95th birthday. Having such a large family is a great joy. I grew up with this situation and still have many people in Tallahassee to whom I am totally close in love. I was there recently for the service of burial for my only sibling - my sister. I cannot be sorry she has died - she was in constant pain and was very unhappy with her life. As she died her husband said she had a smile on her face, the like of which he had never seen. My priest commented that this is typical when we first see the face of Jesus. I know she is out of pain and is happy now. I also know I'll celebrate with her when I see her again.
I have the best kids in the world. I know all of you probably think you do too, and you may, but mine are just outstanding. They have all turned out to be such solid, loving, contributing members of our world and they take such good care of George and I. Thank you all.
Next time I will blog about my garden. It is worth a blog. Till then, God bless you.
