Sam was complimenting The Mom the other day, saying that she should do a blog for the church website. Humph! What about me!? Apparently the ideal blogging (for the optimum readers) is every day, with an ideal length of 450 words. We usually do about that much, often less, and we WERE doing every day–lately we’ve missed a day or two.
Today for example, we’re "late again"! The Mom was busy this morning looking up a recipe to make bagels in the bread maker. This means she didn’t get to actually BAKING them today–it’s now been relegated to tomorrow. She’s going to try it with rapid-rise yeast, so we’ll see if that works. Right now she’s all exhausted because of doing some MORE spring cleaning–the pulling-everything-out and cleaning-under part, which includes washing the sides of the things pulled out (fridges, freezer, stove, microwave stand). Maybe I can convince her to nap… she never can resist it when I curl up on her lap purring.
Meanwhile, here’s another "famous" verse, from The Message, that kinda goes with a debate The Student went to the other day. The speaker was saying that if God doesn’t exist, there is not much purpose to life, and we are no better than animals.
"It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him." (Hebrews 11:6)
So therein you have the two important things to believe about God: that He IS, and that He cares. Believe, then seek. (And hopefully the seeking will eventually find its answer!)
