Season of Busyness
It feels like the days and weeks of the past few months has been one big blur. All do to being busy with a variety of task. We all have these seasons! We all get through them!
What has had us so busy?
The biggest project started over a year ago when the hubby decided, we needed to fix up the outside of our house. That has proved to have opened a can of worms. You can’t just fix the broken, slap some paint on the new and walk away. No, you need to fix the broken, tend to the whole, work on the missed details and refresh it all. The weather had not been cooperating one bit. We have had rain in the afternoon, for what feels like forever. Timing also had not been cooperating either. We finale got to the point where the painting could be done, however the weatherman was forecasting rain all weekend.
Then came Friday’s obstacle. I got off from work in the afternoon, came home and sat down to read my emails. Guess what? My son had to have an immunization shot in order to be allowed to start school in a week. I called our local health dept, to be told they are booked until after school starts. That wasn’t going to work. Not wanting to shell out almost $200 for this one shot, I ran across a notification from the next county over. They were doing a one day event. They were offering the shot we needed for free. The catch was it was first come, first serve, right when we need to be painting the house. God walked in by letting me come across this notification but this is where God stepped in. Hubby and I decided, I’ll go first thing and get the shot then paint the house. I came boldly before God’s throne all day long, expecting grand things.
Grand things is what we received. Our son received his shot, I got the proper paper work to submit to his school and we got the house almost painted with all the rain storms going right around our house. We would have finished painting after church, when I bought the remainder of the paint needed but the air conditioner stopped working over night. Needless to say that was more important to fix than finishing the painting, since the outside temperatures feel like temperatures have been running 95 to 105° all summer. We got the air conditioner fixed, finished painting the house and a couple of weekends later, I got the trim almost finished. The rest can wait until cooler weather arrives.
In the midst of painting the trim, this guy decided to pay me a visit. Even though at first he scared the dickens out of me. He went on his way across the street and left me to painting and my thoughts. That is when this verse popped into my head. The verse is referring to how we became a new creation when we except Christ as our Savior. We are just like our house, Jesus blood on the cross fixes the broken, tends to the whole, works on the missed details and refreshes it all making us new.
In His Love, Crisi
