Phil.2:18 For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. 20But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
I was just catching up on the Mark's blog and was reminded that it is so easy for me to get sucked back into the world of the banal, the world of what is right in front of my nose and needs an answer right away, the world of what is really not that important.
I guess after having been through some deeper water than I am accustomed to, I am looking at life differently. I still really enjoy what I do, but after reading what they are battling for, life itself, I'm irritated that I get sucked back into the things of this world so quickly.
I really do want to be a stranger and an alien, but the cosmos has a strong pull on my heart. The time "away" with Grant's event was so sweet. Being able to just read and sit in his room and visit with all of you, either in person or electronically, was a tremendous blessing and encouragement to me. It's hard to believe that something happening like this in our lives could be looked back on with such affection. I truly think this will be one of the best times in our lives.
Grant is 18 this Saturday. I am so thankful to have him here. We get to enjoy another BD with him. He has no idea of what he wants to do, he's so easy going. He had a golf practice round, for districts, on Monday and played pretty well. Districts are on Wed. He still is tired, but he's been doing lots of things and going lots of places. It really is amazing. God is Good.
