Another Day of “Too Busy”

July 28, 2009 at 10:33 am Leave a comment

Today held unexpected blessings –  visits on Skype or Facebook with Claudia, Mihaela, Debbie, and a fun tea time at Goose and Turrets B & B  in Montara.  That offset the fact that when I went online to purchase Travel and Repatriation Insurance, I found myself at a medical supply for travelers…then at a comparison of policies for travelers.

Allowing frustration to fill me, I did not see the blessing — the comparison is what I really need to examine.  Tomorrow afternoon, I hope to study them and make a better decision.  At the end of the day, I realized I had only felt very brief moments of sadness.  Some might say, “That’s a good thing.” But long ago, I learned that staying “too busy” keeps you out of your feelings…feelings get buried deep inside you where they eat on you, but don’t get resolved.  Fortunately, in the morning at 8 a.m., I have another grief recovery session via Skype.

When I asked God for a message for me as well as for you tonight, this is what He gave me —

“Again and again I sent all my servants, the prophets, to you. They said, ‘Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your fathers.’ But you have not paid attention or listened to me. The descendants of Jonadab son of Recab have carried out the command their forefather gave them, but these people have not obeyed me.’

“Therefore, this is what the LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Listen! I am going to bring on Judah and on everyone living in Jerusalem every disaster I pronounced against them. I spoke to them, but they did not listen; I called to them, but they did not answer.’ “

Then Jeremiah said to the family of the Recabites, “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘You have obeyed the command of your forefather Jonadab and have followed all his instructions and have done everything he ordered.’ Therefore, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Jonadab son of Recab will never fail to have a man to serve me.’ ” Jeremiah 35:14b – 19.  Do you hear a message in here for you? — Anne

Taking it slow and easy, the cow herder moves the cattle slowly around the edge of town until each milk cow has walked in through their owner's gate in Sfantu Gheorghe.  Take it easy...slow and easy.
