MUSINGS – January 16, 2019

LOOK UP!

Matthew 6:24
No one can serve two masters. He will hate the first master and love the second, or he will be devoted to the first and despise the second. You cannot serve God and wealth.”

The sum weight of the things that you own are what anchors you to this world. The more you own, the harder it is to rise to the world beyond.

Keep your eyes focused on God’s kingdom and what has His approval. These are the things that lift you heavenward.

2019 January 15 Tuesday in Liberty Hill and Cedar Park, Texas

41° and deeply overcast, it looks and feels like winter even though it isn’t really that cold. Somehow it managed to reach 48°today.

For breakfast I opened one package of the 72 hour emergency survival food that arrived in yesterday’s mail. We had one serving each of Cinnamon Sugar Oatmeal. That leaves six servings in the pack. There is also potato soup and mac and cheese in the pouch. That’s not much variety … but hey it’s to keep you nourished for 72 hours and it will do that. The oatmeal was great, by the way, not too sweet, which was something I feared with a presweetened food. I look forward tho trying the soup and mac and cheese.

We did more laundry today. I mentioned the last time that we missed getting some throws (lap blankets) washed. They are done now. We wanted to get this little chore done before Ella has her surgery tomorrow.

Late this afternoon the hospital finally called to tell us when we need to arrive tomorrow. Five in the morning. That’s about what time I had thought it would be.

No sunrise and no sunset photos today. The sun was ano show.

7pm prayer meeting tonight. Laying on of hands and anointing with oil before surgery seemed like a wonderful idea.

God bless you.

SEARCHING FOR LIGHT

https://musingsdevotions.wordpress.com

MUSINGS – January 15, 2019

SEARCHING FOR LIGHT

Matthew 6:22-23
The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is unclouded, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body will be full of darkness. If the light in you is darkness, how dark it will be!

The warning here is that if we seek the light, the good, the godly, the healthy, and that which nourishes the soul, we will find it. But that the opposite it’s also true. So, do not seek the darkness seemsan obvious thing.

2019 January14 Monday in Liberty Hill, Texas

34° and mostly cloudy. 44 for thenot so high. Another pollen alert. I’ll be glad when the pollen level drops. Maybe then I’ll stop squeaking when I breathe.

I took this sunrise photo from the window in the front room. If I’d taken the time to get dressed and sloshed through the mud and water, I could have gotten a better angle that didn’t include the street lights. However, by then the sun would have been up and the colorful clouds would have been gone.

After breakfast we stopped at the post office and picked up three packages of emergency food.

We then took the truck to Cabana Auto in Liberty Hill. The gentleman there took a look at it and said, “Its the battery, it’s a Wal-Mart battery and it may be under warranty. Take it to Wal-Mart and see what they will do.” I thanked him, shook his hand and went to Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart checked the battery and found it defective. It was under warranty (would have expired in February) and they replaced it for free. Thank the Lord.

The next stop was the hospital to make sure that they have all the information that they need for Ella’s surgery before Wednesday. She still doesn’t know what time she is to be there.

Feeling lucky, we went to Verizon. Last summer we purchased a HUM automotive diognostic device which quit working just before we left Iowa at the end of September. The salesman listened to us then went out and unplugged the device and plugged it back in. “Try that,”

I needed a case for my often dropped phone. As he brought up our account, he told us that we could upgrade to a new phone. They would pay off our existing phones and buy them back. Plus save us $80 a month. We bit. We bought.

We drove home and tried to check on the HUM. It needed to have the app downloaded to our new phones. It also needs a 9 digit code from the side of the box that it cane in. Don’t have it. I’ll call Verizon tomorrow.

There was an Emmaus meeting at church tonight with a potluck before hands. We went and ate. However my nose was dripping like a faucet so we did not stay for the meeting.

God bless you.

2019 January 13 Sunday in Liberty Hill, Texas

31° and clear with honest to God ice, not frost, on the windshield this morning. It reached 45° under full sunny skies.

We arrived at church way early. Pastor was practicing his guitar.

Don’t often see the sanctuary this empty.

Now for something completely different. I was driving into the sun for most of our drive into town. When I got to a shady spot, I looked down to see what speed I was going and I wasn’t. None of the gauges were working. And then they all just popped to life again. Curious. When we arrived at church and tried to back INTO THE a5RTT5 parking spot, reverse didn’t work. The forward settings work but not reverse. I pulled into a spot where I can go forward out.

After church I drove through Chicken Express’s driver through for lunch. While there, I put the truck in reverse and it worked!. When we arrived I parked perpendicular to the trailer so that I could drive forward in the morning. Tomorrow I will call for an appointment to diagnose the truck.

God bless you.

WASH YOUR FACE, COMB YOUR HAIR

https://musingsdevotions.wordpress.com

MUSINGS – January 13, 2019

WASH YOUR FACE, COMB YOUR HAIR

Matthew 6:16-18
When you fast, stop looking sad like hypocrites. They put on sad faces to make it obvious that they’re fasting. I can guarantee this truth: That will be their only reward. When you fast, wash your face and comb your hair. Then your fasting won’t be obvious. Instead, it will be obvious to your Father who is with you in private. Your Father sees what you do in private. He will reward you.

Once again Jesus is telling his followers to not behave like the religious leaders of the day. They made a great show of how they were depriving themselves. As usual the focus was on them and not in God.

When you hear the word fasting do you automatically think of not eating? That is one way to fast but not the only way. The biblical reason for fasting is to stop focusing on the things of this world and instead focus on God.

During Lent it is customary to “give up” something. This is fasting. But remember to wash your face and comb your hair. Focus on things eternal rather on those that will be erased in time and it will be a true fast for the Lord.

2019 January 12 Saturday in Liberty Hill, Texas

45° and drizzle. Reached 55° and clear.

We had no place to go and nothing to do. And that’s exactly what we did. Actually we stayed home and accomplished some cleaning and sorting.

I scanned the last of the over 400 Santa letters from this year. I love reading them. Most of all I love the ones where they aren’t asking for anything but just giving Santa a gift.

That’s all for today

God bless you.
