A very good evening to you! *Hugs*

Work went well but very busy.

Always a few “piggies” but nothing too crazy.

Cold outside? In Anchorage? What’s up with that? LOL

Stupid tired this evening, only two more nights of lemons & I’m done. For some reason I just can’t seem to let them go to waste.

Hope your commute goes well & see you tomorrow.

Unstoppable

January 30, 2013

Under it. Over it. Around it. Through it. Nothing will stop me from doing it.” I often hear people express this kind of attitude when they get an idea or see an opportunity that seems good or profitable. They devote all of their resources to getting it done.

As evidence that this way of thinking may be flawed, I call as my witness a donkey—a donkey belonging to a man named Balaam.

Balaam was offered a profitable assignment from a neighboring king, and he inquired of God for permission to accept it (Num. 22). When God said no, the king’s representatives made a better offer. Thinking God might change His mind, Balaam asked again. God granted permission for Balaam to go with them but with strict conditions. God knew Balaam’s heart and was not pleased with him, so He placed His Angel in the way. Balaam couldn’t see the Angel but his donkey could. When the donkey refused to continue, Balaam became angry with the animal for blocking his progress.

Balaam’s story teaches us that not every obstacle is meant to be overcome. Some are placed by God to keep us from doing something foolish. When our plans are hindered, we shouldn’t assume that it’s Satan trying to stop us. It might be God trying to protect us.

Let Your wisdom guide me ever,
For I dare not trust my own;
Lead me, Lord, in tender mercy,
Leave me not to walk alone. —Reed
God is always protecting us—
even when we don’t realize we need it.

Read: Numbers 22:10-34

The Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the way. —Numbers 22:31
Bible in a Year:
Exodus 23-24; Matthew 20:1-16

Amazing. It rightly pegged me as a Krackel bar, which I am. That’s the first time one of these tests got me right.

I’m a Dark Chocolate Bar. Was difficult for me to pick answers. Don’t really like chocolate except for German Chocolate Cake and that’s because of the frosting. Also, I grew up on a farm and we didn’t have anywhere to go trick or treating nor do I ever recall having a Halloween costume. But the results were, compared to other tests I’ve taken at this site, pretty close to right, or, at least, pretty close to how I see myself. These are always fun to do.

Just be kind and don’t tell me how warm it is down there.
The weather here has been tumultuous of late.
This evening, we have freezing rain, but at least it has warmed up!
Three days ago, the temp was -7, the wind chill factor was -23!

It’s no fun, that’s for sure!
The stick shift in my little Jetta felt like it was in a bucket of wet cement!

It was cozy in here, with the kitchen wood cookstove crackling merrily.
When I tried to put the dog out to do his business, I had to unpeel all four of his feet from the door frame!

A tidy deep freeze is a good thing. Can you use outdoors for keeping things cold? We usually do, but this winter has been very weird. Twice already we’ve had temps in the mid 40s.

Here in Comanche OK we got a little bit of some rain with some thunder and lightning. Nothing major.

The storms moved so fast they never really had much of a chance to intensify beyond some hail and wind.

We did pick up around a quarter to half an inch from the storms.

Yes, it is quite a bit colder today. I cooked the fish last night and it was great. Wife was never much a fish eater, but she actually was wanting more.
