A Day Off

I am taking today off. There are no plans. I have begun without shaving,
reading from 2 John, and now stumbling through Conde Naste Traveler.
With gas levels high and airfares and euro's high our trip planning will
be minimum this year. It is hard to believe we were in London last May.

JOY IN SEEING GOODNESS.............2 John 4 "I have no greater joy than this, to learn that my children walk in truth..." For those who love God, there is great rejoicing over the good lives that we see in the in kind and loving persons of faith. db

CAUGHT..................The preacher told the congregation: "Next Sunday the sermon will be on 2 John Chapter 2, The following Sunday, he asked how many have read Chapter 2 of 2 John? Almost all hands went up. He said "There is no second chapter of 2 John and our talk today deals with honesty!" Hmmmm Don Brennan Warren MI

RECREATION..........A day off. To 're create.' Good idea. Life can sometimes get too filled with stuff. The heart of man can overflow with created things and forget the Creator. Bless your day. Don Brennan Warren MI

GOD IS GOOD..............From T. Merton: "...the grateful man knows that God is good...not by hearsay but by (personal) experience."
Ask the devout people in your congregation about: 'God is Good.' They will tell you of so many times in their lives where the kindness of God, His mercy and His love were made so obvious to them. These little 'miracles' moved their hearts to greater love for the One Who is LOVE. Don Brennan

DAY OFF....To notice, more closely,
the handiwork of God. Psalm 45:9 "Come, behold the works of the Lord; all the wonders He has done." How much beauty have we missed in our 'hurry up world?' Don Brennan Warren MI

LOOKING AS PRAYER.............To look at the works of God with awe in our hearts is a prayer...to pause over a wild flower in bloom is a simple and great prayer...to find a heart -shaped stone (as I did) is to consider the dependability of God's love and care of us. Prayer is all around us; we just need to take the the time to ponder. "And she pondered all these things in her heart." (Luke Ch 2)

ROCK,HEART SHAPED..............In the comment above I mentioned finding a rock. It was the day we learned of the 26 deaths at Virginia Tech,and I was starting my walk. I wanted to have a prayer intention as so I thought about things. I decided to pray for all broken hearts...especially parents and loved ones who lost someone at VT...in a special way for the family of the young man who did the shooting...they also lost a child under very different circumstances. There...four feet away was a stone, light colored, very heart shaped and broken. I carried the two peices and at home' glued them together. They are at my computer and daliy I touch the stone and ask God to help all those in the world who are in great sorrow and difficulty. The rock was at the base of a tree and should have been covered with the lilies of the valley and the myrtle I have planted there...it was in plain sight..and it is different from most stones I see as I walk each day. Blessings. Don Brennan Warren MI

TO TAKE TIME OUT............What a gift this is...to take some time away from our regular routines. A time to consider where we are at...where we want to go...where is the 'work' that He has chosen for us... and which is for the glory of Him. Don Brennan Warren MI
