Too much in my head!

Monday, April 25, 2016

This was taken this morning--
--this too---
The weather is not warming up---but, how can we doubt that things are turning out the way they should, when we see this?---

Sometimes I do doubt various events going on in my world--

--the election coming up in the U.S.---

--the weather---'specially this Spring--

--the frustrations of being married----

And of course---Health over ice cream--which will win?

Lord love a Duck-I must Spark --as if my life depends on it---
It really does you know!

    Keep reading your list of WHYs . . . and think about how bad you want it.

    As for the elections coming soon in the USA emoticon , we simply have to remember that God, in His Holy Scripture, has told us that He appoints whomever He wants to rule. The only thing that satan (I refuse to give him any ranking even to capitalizing his name) & demons can do is tempt rulers according to their lusts, trying to twist &, thus, derail God's plans. It is so very evident that the sovereign Creator God permits, with limits, wickedness in government & elsewhere. Daniel 2:20-22 gives us the reassurance that nothing has happened, is happening, or will happen that God in His sovereignty has not permitted or will permit to bring about His plan for mankind & this world. Even when we see what He is permitting (what I see as the beginnings of His judgment on the USA emoticon , a nation whose people have turned away from Him) we, who know Him as Abba Father, can rest assured that, because He is in control, we do not have to fear. We do, however, need to continue in obedience to Him alone & continue to put our trust where it will pay the highest of dividends.

    The Book of Daniel outlines what in Daniel's time were all future events & in this year of 2016, some have long ago come to pass & some are still to come. I find the whole Book a comforting Word from the Lord God Almighty.

    Bottom line: God is in control & even when we wonder at His allowing what is going on, we can still find great comfort & peace in knowing His perfect will is going forth.

    Now for the weather, that the good Lord is sending our way; my beloved MrV told me this morning that our area is to have a drastic drop in temperature (from such lovely & warm & sunny days) & we can expect emoticon &/or snow over the next few days. This is with everything budded out and the blooming & colorful daffodils & emoticon bringing such beautiful signs of Springtime out in some of the flowerbeds. emoticon

    I don't find being in the covenant of marriage at all frustrating. Quite frankly, I rather like it, as we come upon our forty-eighth anniversary in just three days time. emoticon That is not to say that there have not been times over the years that choices, on either of our parts, have not left the other feeling perplexed &, on occasion, miffed to the max. emoticon In all truthfulness, I would rather have had the privilege, for just forty-eight minutes, of being the gal my treasured MrV chose to share his last name with, than seventy-five years with any other male ever created. We are so blessed of God to have had the past forty-eight years of enjoying the covenant of marriage &, I certainly do pray that God plans for us to make it to seventy-five years. That is unless Jesus returns before those years have passed. In that case we will both be "outta" here in the blink of an eye! \o/ \o/

    Health over emoticon ~~~ which will win? Now that is the question of the moment, isn't it? emoticon I vote health! emoticon

    God bless your Monday & the coming week, Lynda!

    When your head is too full, go for a walk. Picture the thoughts as calories dropping off as you walk. You will be lighter and healthier when you return home and thee is more likely to be a smile on your face. Have a wonderful day!

    Our primary for voting is tomorrow. I used to work the polls but had to give it up due to work. A shame because I really enjoyed it. emoticon

    Spring is definitely here. Or I should say shot right past Spring to summer here. Today will be 80 degrees here. But it is still cold overnight and we still need to replace the heater. Right now it is turned off so need a couple of blankets but so warm during the day, don't need it to be on. Just glad it is not January or February so my procrastinating himself is lucky the heater circulating pump did not die then. The heater man when he comes to clean the heater has been telling him for the last few years the heater was old and needed replacement but my himself knows better? Oh that's right..himselves think they know EVERYTHING!!! emoticon

    But we wives know differently, don't we? emoticon

    Have a lovely Monday!!
