I feel like griping today! This place is too noisy - church camps. Everybody knows my business - I need a quiet place to live!
I just got done with a brief devotion period and read the following - summarized. A farmer was walking around his farm complaining of all the work; a large pond to stock and maintain, cattle to take care of and just too much to do. He decided to sell and turned it over to a realty. Time went by and the realtor called to okay the ad for the farm. The ad read something like this; "A lovely farm for sale in an ideal location - quiet and peaceful, contoured with rolling hills, carpeted with soft meadows, nourished by a fresh lake, and blessed with well-bred livestock." After hearing the ad the farmer said;"cancel the ad, I have changed my mind - I have been looking for a place like that all my life."
On second thought, maybe my life's circumstances are pretty good after all - children finding Christ here - maybe even today. Neighbors that I can trust and would come to my aid in a minute. Yep, I have been looking for a place just like I have.
Sorry Jesus for complaining today, you have really blessed mama and I.
