God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment
Thursday, November 13, 2008
being well gives you a whole new perspective... Humm I could think of so many spiritual analogies to that. But not today...

"Sometimes the mind, for reasons we don't necessarily understand, just decides to go to the store for a quart of milk." - Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
I think this is one of the funniest quotes I have heard in a while. That and the whole frisbee one I quoted a while back. I love this reality.
Sometimes the mind...
And doesn't it.
I mean, sometimes the mind is right there with us and all of a sudden we are remembering that we needed to get the icecream out of the car, take the keys out of the front door (where they have hung all night long), or even more fun out of the car where they have sat waiting for some wonderful thief to come and drive our car off.
I don't know.
Maybe I am the only one that has had these things happen. I do know that it has nothing to do with old age, because I have been doing this since my 20's... But, maybe, maybe, maybe it has to do with other things. Things like hormonal changes? or thyroid not working? or because as many a person has told me, "MM you think too much.", or maybe you haven't lived the absent minded professor's life... but I have :-0
And you know what, today I am thankful for it.
I have a mind that never stops working.
Sometimes it isn't on the most day in day out things - but it is always working.
And I am grateful for that. I have eyes that see, hands that move, fingers that can play the strings of my harp, feet that sometimes hurt when I walk on them in the morning - but I can feel my toes...
I love this body that God has given me.
I pray it can be used for Him. I want to sing His praises, teach His word, and love on the people that He has given me to love on.
I want to encourage, and basically be light in a dark world.
I love helping when I can. I love knowing that I don't have to when I can't. I know that God is pleased with me and that He finds pleasure in my songs of delight and praise to Him.
I am overwhelmed with the joys of living. Maybe, because for the last week I have felt like I was going to die any minute.
Yep, it is always a good thing to be sick. Because, then you remember how good it feels to be well. Counting my blessings

A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
