Well, sorry this post is late, but Parker got a compound fracture in his arm & we were at the hospital in San Diego till one this morning. He is doing well, the doctor was able to set his arm without any sutures, so we praise the Lord for that. He was in pain till the procedure, but doing much better. Thanks for your prayers. Yes, he ate two popsicles after the procedures. By the way the biggest challenge was finding a vein to inject anesthesia into, took several hours to get him sedated. He had been without water for most of the day so was dehydrated.
Well in answer to our question yesterday, The popular kids game that became an Olympic event, it was tug-a-war. The opposing teams try to drag the other team across the line in five minutes. This is still a popular game played by kids even today.
Well, the record that a cockroach has travelled in one hour is, are you ready, They can travel 3 miles in 60 minutes, now that may not sound like much but imagine traveling that far on those tiny legs.
By the way, Why did the farmer bury all his cash? Well of course, in order to ensure he had rich spring soil. Now thats a (shhhh) dirty story. Ohhhhh thats the best I can do on only a few hours sleep.
Eccl. 2:17 "Therefore I hated life because the work that was done under the sun was distressing to me, for all is vanity and grasping for the wind."
This phrase "grasping for the wind" is only found in Ecclesiastes, with the exception of Hos. 12:1. It always appears in contrast to the Hebrew word "havel" which means all these efforts are rendered unending, and ineffective.
Solomon found that many of the names & faces of people who were thought to be important today, began to fade into oblivion. These many efforts became a passing thought, forgotten.
Here is a conclusion of a famous soccer athlete, after achieving all that he had worked for in his life & career, "The greatest thrill of my life was when I first scored the decisive goal in a big game and heard the roar of the cheering crowds. But in the quiet of my room that same night, a sense of the futility of it swept over me. After all, what was it worth? Was there nothing better to live for than to score goals? Such thoughts were the beginning of my search for satisfaction. I knew in my heart that no one could meet my need but God himself. Soon after, I found in Christ what I could never find in the world."
Prov. 3:16 sums up this very lesson. "Wisdom (knowing God, His ways, thoughts,and yes, just Him) is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. ... She will guide down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying."
So Go With God though the way may seem similar, busy, hard, challenging, without finding His way, we cannot remaine complete. Prov. 8:25vsays it this way. "For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord."
Find rest in Him & His ways my friend.
