What a Crazy Week!

Sometimes, doesn’t it feel like a crazy week? Lately, it feels like every week is a crazy week. I can barely catch my breath. I’m sure you feel the same.

The good, bad and ugly happened this week. A man died in Las Vegas, covering his wife with his arms and saying, “I’ll see you in heaven…” We’ve had about a tragedy a week for a month here in the good, ole’ USA. Do you think GOD is trying to tell us something? I wonder if we are listening yet…

Don’t hold your breath: I doubt it. More judgments are yet to come. I’ll keep you posted…

Meanwhile, in my personal life, we are finally moving in to our “new” home in Davenport in a few more days. I’m living in what feels like an empty shell here in Winter Garden… Its kind of dreary and also confusing when you know most of your stuff is boxed somewhere 20 miles away in a garage… but that will be resolved, the Lord willing, in a few days. Also, my sister is coming with her four grown sons tomorrow and I hope they will help us finish the process of moving…so the Lord does provide.

Meanwhile,  guy we sold a car to was arrested for child pornography and he is awaiting trial. And he seemed like a nice person… Wow, what kind of crazy world are we living in?

A also met a guy at Publix wearing a tee shirt that said “F___” on it. (You can fill in the blank…) I was very upset with him and told him to not wear that kind of awful stuff in public. But the Holy Spirit prompted me, and I gave him a tract. He thanked me for it.

Of course, we’re off to a great start in our new home. Irma blew off 50 shingles so now we will need a new roof…I’m praying it won’t cost too much.

Ever feel like you’re running out of money? Every day in every way…

Lastly, I said good-bye to my neighbor, Jay, who lives across the street. She is an Indian and has never heard the Gospel until I spoke to her about it. I have talked to her extensively about it already. Today, I left her a track in Hindu and English. She was shocked I had them in her own language. (I do get them that way through Chick.) She promised me she would read it. As I walked away, her son was reading the English one already…

Just think, the USA is a mission field now and we are the missionaries… Folks, we need to get out of our comfort zone and pick up our efforts to share the gospel. (I’m talking to myself, too!)

All this happened in one week… It’s enough to make you dizzy.  But the Lord showed me the perfect verses to match the occasion:

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and the latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. (James 5:7-8)
