House of Cards
Thank you for your prayers. We had a great visit – no cavities for five people. Pretty good if you ask me. We also went to the World Trade Center site and spent some time at Rockefeller Plaza. The kids were off for Yom Kippur.
I have to tell you that God has been dealing with me for repentance lately, and I am repenting. I count myself so blessed to have the relationship with God that I have – never would I have thought that God would bless me so much with His presence. God is so awesome.
I save devotionals that are pretty awesome, and today during our long visit to the dentist my middle son was building houses of cards (granted that they were business cards) but it reminded me of the following devotional. I hope it blesses you. For most of my life I always thought that my life was as feeble as a house of card, but God has redeemed even that. May you never look at a deck of cards the same way again. This is from an anonymous source.
Deck of Cards
The Ace, it tells me that there is one GOD and no other.
The “6” makes me mindful that GOD CREATED THE EARTH IN JUST SIX DAYS, and GOD said that it was good.
The “9” I think of the NINE LEPERS that GOD healed. There were ten lepers in all, but only one stopped to thank him.
May you never look at a deck of cards the same way.
I pray that God blesses you. I know that I am blessed by knowing all of you!
|Off to the dentist this morning – ours is in New York City, hours away – so we won’t be back until late tonight – all five of us get our teeth cleaned the same day, usually around school vacations or days off – so it is a looooong day.
Anyway pray for me, I am petrified of dentists – and have panic attacks thinking. I am trying to not be afraid as God commands, but prayer can help in that regard. I keep telling myself it is just a teeth cleaning, just a teeth cleaning, sigh. I am still puzzled about some people’s careers and why they chose them. Dentists are universally not popular unless one’s teeth are hurting, then they are your friend. Anyway, have a blessed day.
When I get back home, and can have access to the computer, I will try to respond to more of your comments. I appreciate your input into the Holy Spirit passages.
