Summer is finally here

The calender may say that summer starts when we have the longest day, but when my son has the last day of school and high temperature for the day is over 100 degrees, it is Summer.

My grade have been posted for the semester. This has been an amazing semester of discovery and enlightenment. My email this morning is a taste of how I am feeling this morning.

Linkin Two lists for everyday

    List 1: Your Focus List (the road ahead)

    What are you trying to achieve? What makes you happy? What's important to you? Design your time around those things. Because time is your one limited resource and no matter how hard you try you can't work 25/8.

    List 2: Your Ignore List (the distractions)

    To succeed in using your time wisely, you have to ask the equally important but often avoided complementary questions: what are you willing not to achieve? What doesn't make you happy? What's not important to you? What gets in the way?

Followed by:

"The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them." Psalm 34:7 (NIV)

Holy Experience  had a great example from Max Lucado :

How a white stallion had rode into the paddocks of an old man and all the villagers had congratulated him on such good fortune.
And the old man had only offered this: “Is it a curse or a blessing? All we can see is a sliver. Who can see what will come next?”
When the white horse ran off, the townsfolk were convinced the white stallion had been a curse. The old man lived surrendered and satisfied in the will of God alone:  “I cannot see as He sees.”
And when the horse returned with a dozen more horses, the townsfolk declared it a blessing, yet the old man said only, “It is as He wills and I give thanks for His will.”
Then the man’s only son broke his leg when thrown from the white stallion. The town folk all bemoaned the bad fortune of that white stallion. And the old man had only offered, “We’ll see. We’ll see. It is as He wills and I give thanks for His will.”
When a draft for a war took all the young men off to battle but the son with the broken leg, the villagers all proclaimed the good fortune of that white horse. And the old man said but this, “We see only a sliver of the sum. We cannot see how the bad might be good. God is sovereign and He is good and He sees and work all things together for good.”

That is to say that: I am afraid, the Lord is with me. He has a purpose and plan and I need not fear.
When I go flying down the ramp of life the Lord will bring people like Mr. Googins to catch me at the bottom of the ramp. I just have to take the leap of faith.

         Mr. G catching me at the bottom of the ramp with the first hug and congratulations.

                                                          THANK YOU MR. G.
             Mostly Thank you, Jesus for healing Mr. G of cancer so that he could be there.
