All has been well lately; no disasters or drama. I am reading another thought provoking book, Disappointed with God by Philip Yancey. It is consuming my free time, but this is not a bad thing considering that I twisted a knee the other day when my sweet cousin screamed cockroach below, and it needs to be healed before Saturday when my daughter has a show. (What a good excuse to lay around and read, yes?)
Anyway, when I finish Yancey’s book I am trying to decide between Alcorn’s If God is Good, Making all Things New by Henri Nouen, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, or the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant. I used to read several books at one time without a hiccup, but as I get older, it is becoming difficult to keep track of too many story lines at once, and besides, I am not to sure if I would really like to have those four jumbled up together in my mind. So it is only a question of which one first 🤔
On a more personal note, upon the surprising realization of my solitary state, I decided it was maybe time to get out there and mingle with the opposite gender. So I girded up my courage, and signed up for an online dating site, thinking to find some company 😑 This did not go so well as it became apparent that all the gentlemen I would be interested in had marriage as their end goal, and alas, I have no desire to marry again…..sigh
So I suppose it is rather apt, that the book I am reading is summing up with, life’s not fair, get over it, and Love the Lord your God with your all in all, in spite of it.
Harsh perhaps, but quite helpful. For if your end goal is fairness, rather than love, disappoint is sure to follow you all the days of your life.
