I shall yet learn, and grow beyond the immaturity of adulthood. I shall again laugh, and learn the wisdom of a child.

Hello, Lord.
Thank you for the opportunity to learn and grow some more today. I feel ever so slightly lost, unsure what I am supposed to be doing. Probably from being stuck inside this little camper for several days straight while it rained, rained, rained, froze, and thawed. Now the sun is shining and it is above 50 degrees for the first time in awhile. I suppose I have a touch of cabin fever, wanting to get OUT and walk and do things… and yet there are a gazillion things to do here as well, mostly on my little Lenny the laptop. The hubby does not feel like driving, so I have all day to work — and hang out with him, lol. I am also enjoying my new YouTube Red subscription, made possible by unsubscribing from two other little monthly expenditures from Amazon. Lord, please help me to balance input and output, learning and doing, working and playing, indoors and out, physical and mental exercise. LOL. Isn’t that the big challenge nowadays — balancing all our roles and activities? I am definitely grateful to spend my time learning and creating, rather than spending countless hours cooking and cleaning and sewing and preparing wood and food and textiles — like a hundred years ago or so. Thank you, Father, for creating me not only WHO I am, but WHEN I am…!! 😀

Daniel 2:19-23 ERV

During the night, God explained the secret to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven. 
He said, “Praise God’s name forever and ever! Power and wisdom belong to him. 
He changes the times and seasons.
He gives power to kings, and he takes their power away. He gives wisdom to people, so they become wise. He lets people learn things and become wise. 
He knows hidden secrets that are hard to understand. Light lives with him, so he knows what is in the dark and secret places. 
God of my ancestors, I thank you and praise you. You gave me wisdom and power. You told us what we asked for. You told us about the king’s dream.” 

Lord, I thank you for letting me learn so very many things. I have an idea where I would like to be, what I would like to be doing, even how I would structure my work. Yet I offer that little ideal up to you, asking you to refine it, make it reflect instead what YOU would choose for me. I know that my loftiest “wisdom” is foolishness compared to yours. I offer my heart, my mind, my time to you and ask you to give me your wisdom in my work this day. Show me what to learn, what to build and create, how to order my time. And please help me to be content with whatever we accomplish together, no matter how much or how little gets done each day. I give you my time, Lord. I thank you and praise you. Amen.
