Well friends, Cammie has done it again. Hit the nail on the head! No beating around the bush! Please read her brief but powerful entry at JESUS,JESUS,JESUS!!!
Why do we have such a hard time learning this valuable lesson? Why do we seem to forget it over and over?
I first learned it in my late teens & early twenties, when I lost my father, my middle sister and then my mother in a span of less than 6 years. And in some ways it did change me for life. Positive ways. Treasuring people and events.
Yet, still I lost much of the lesson. I re-learned it when Jesus first called me back to Himself at the age of 32. Then over time, I let a lot of it slip away.
Got a refresher when we first moved up to Caneyhead, 8 1/2 years ago. We had no frills and such. Spent a lot of time outside around a fire each evening....just the three of us then. Hardly ever a TV on. No where to all sit comfortably to watch it.
And then in the aftermath of Rita, the same points driven home again. Yes, times were very rough then, but each day was all of us together. Neighbors that never visit, made their way as they came back into town to talk and compare stories. We amused ourselves with the simplest things.
AND in all these times there was the time to "Be still and know that I AM God."
