Nate and I take the horses to camp this week. I really don't know how much I can do while on crutches. I can't overdo. We will see how this day goes. I'll for sure take pictures.
A poem for today. I like to think freestyle when doing these poems because I don't want to take the time to think about rhyming words or meter. I'm just taking notes from Pastor's sermon. I want to listen and focus...and take notes in this form:
Even the greatest Bible heroes
Had a time of trial
They didn't get to pick and choose -
Sometimes it was a downward spiral.
God has a purpose for my pain in His plan
When a heart is proud, then we cannot stand.
We do things to look good? To impress?
God knocks the props out from under us.
God does not want our "self sufficiency."
Operating on our own terms,
But because of God's mercy
We are not consumed - deficiency.
God has a purpose for testing and trails.
It's more about my heart than health, money, fame.
So "a thorn in the flesh" to buffet
Can actually be spiritual gain.
