My Third Sunday Seven

Not only am I thankful for the Sabbath, our day of rest, I am also thankful for this coming week. It will be Spring Break for my children and their teachers. They need this break before testing begins.

I’m thankful that our entire family will be heading off Wednesday for a much needed vacation.

I’m thankful for my husband. Today is the anniversary of our engagement. It doesn’t seem like 23 years. In fact, it seems our friendship grows deeper with each passing year.

I’m thankful for my children. Not only do they provide my connection to future generations, they also ground me in my past. Thankfully they both understand the importance of God in their lives and are turning out to be decent human beings.

IT RAINED TODAY…Thank you Lord! As the door opened at church you the smell of rain wafted into the building. It was a nice smell and feel. The air was crisp and the trees and grass had such a wonderful green hue. Finally, some relief from the pollen.

I’m thankful for the Bible. I was thinking about it in church today (when I was supposed to be listening to the preacher). It can be the most complex book with metaphors and don’t even get me started on some of the parables of Jesus. Yet---- it can be so simple as well just as the whole salvation plan is simple if you just don’t analyze the whole thing. I believe that’s why so many academics have such a problem with Christianity. There are too many coincidences for it not to be based in truth, yet they overanalyze everything and then deny the exisitence of the divinity of Christ. Silly!

Finally, I’m thankful that I live in a country where I can read the Bible without fear, write about it without fear, and that others can deny it without fear if they so choose.

We had a much needed rain here today, too. What a blessing to have the air cleared and cleaned! I pray God's blessings on you during the Holy Week.

I think this is a beautiful Sunday Seven! I have to say your thoughts about the Bible reminded me of something that my DH used to say when he preached. He said Mark Twain said, "It's not the parts of the Bible that I don't understand that bother me, it's the parts that I DO!"

And it's true. May God bless you and your children on their Spring Break this week. Mine's over now...only 36 days of school left.

Blessings.

Have a wonderful vacation with your family - and congratulations on 23 years of marriage.
