Jan 19

Thank you, Father, for the sheets of foam insulation over the windows in this camper, holding back the force of the cold wind blowing outside. Despite it being a balmy 67 degrees at 8 o’clock last night, at 8 o’clock this morning it was 35 degrees with a windchill of 18. And it isn’t supposed to change much for the next 24 hours or so. Still I get too hot with the heater going constantly, and I actually just turned it off and am enjoying a bit of cooler air that is allowed to circulate towards my nostrils, heehee! I am quite content, and have no real complaints at all. Thank you, Father, for helping me through the turmoil of searching through all my belongings for a decent right-side contact this morning… I am getting seriously low on those, with the one I had put in actually causing my eye to hurt. I guess there are limits to how long you can wear a “daily” contact lens, lol. I am just grateful that the ones I own have lasted me so long, going back and forth between pairs, wearing my favorites over and over but still having others to fall back on when it is not so critical to be able to see clearly. I am grateful for your provision, faithful Shepherd, and I know you will guide me as to when to order new lenses — and somehow provide the money to do so. More than anything, I am supremely grateful that you have created me in such a way that I do NOT need to have perfect living conditions in order to have JOY! Please show me how I can share that joy with others, Lord. As the people here have commented about me, “She just wants everyone to be happy.” Yup, that’s me, heeheehee! 🙂

 
Hebrews 10:32-36 ERV

Remember the days when you first learned the truth. You had a hard struggle with much suffering, but you continued strong. 
Sometimes people said hateful things to you and mistreated you in public. And sometimes you helped others who were being treated that same way. 
Yes, you helped them in prison and shared in their suffering. And you were still happy when everything you owned was taken away from you. You continued to be happy, because you knew that you had something much better—something that would continue forever. 
So don’t lose the courage that you had in the past. Your courage will be rewarded richly. 
You must be patient. After you have done what God wants, you will get what he promised you. 

 
Song that’s in my head, because I was just reading that the beautiful Greek word for God’s HAND is pronounced “Khire”… which reminded me of the song Kyrie Eleison. Sorry for the corniness, heehee. Part of my silly joy. 😀
