Obeying and Waiting

Good Afternoon, All!
     Enjoying the week? I certainly hope so. Finally, the snow is melting! Well... melting and then falling again, but last night we had a glorious rain shower!

    I have only a few moments to chat today. Lots of errands to run, siblings to pick up, activities to manage, you know the drill.

     As I was reading my Bible study today, the Lord highlighted one particular note from Sunday's sermon. My pastor is taking us through the book of Hebrews. A very methodical and studious man, he works slowly and meticulously through each section, revealing those precious nuggets of wisdom that we otherwise would miss in our general sweep of Scripture. The last few weeks, we have ventured through the Hall of Faith, Hebrews 11, where all of the heroes and heroines of the Old Testament are cited for their faith and endurance and how God rewarded them. Abraham and Sarah stood up for recognition last Sunday and the pastor said this line,

 "Much of following God is obeying, then waiting."

     That is a hard message. I don't like waiting, and often I find myself wondering if I am still following God when nothing seems to come of my "good works" or obedience. Don't despair. Just because what we feel we are owed is coming slowly, does not mean that God has forgotten us. He doesn't neglect the smallest and weakest of creation and He won't neglect you.

     So let us rejoice in the present as we look forward to the future. 


Until the Next Time,

Start the Week Off Right!

Good Morning, All!
     I hope ya'll enjoyed the weekend! We have finally gotten that snow the weathermen promised! Personally, I'm about to move back to Mexico if it stays this cold for much longer! Oh, give me a home, where the cruise liners roam!
     So with it being so cold, it's tough to stay healthy and fit! But apparently,  according to research, "just 15 minutes of laughter a day will burn 10 to 40 calories, depending on a person's weight and the intensity of the laughter. That's enough to shift between 1 and 4lb a year (http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/calories/burning_calories/laughing-burns-calories.htm)." 
So get ready to laugh off those calories!

 Enjoy the videos!
