Genesis 8:22 - "While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”
As I grow older I am developing a tiny bit of wisdom. Grant it all, not much, but a little!! Some of that garnered wisdom tells me what I've really known all along but now I'm taking the time to pay attention. The days come and the days go, the nights come and the nights go, the seasons come and the seasons go, and our time on this earth is so short. Our time comes and our time goes too. I talk so much on here about not wasting. Don't waste your food and don't waste resources but above all . . . don't waste the precious time you have been given. Diligently search His face and do not falter. He will guide you.
Ah! I must have gotten up way too early this morning. My heartfelt feelings, the real stuff, floats to the very top and seeps out of my pores. I can't help it. I often become so philosophical and emotional in the mornings. If I weep uncontrollably and/or think way out of the box, this is always when it will happen. I think it's because I've just gotten up and haven't had the time yet to build the walls up around myself so that I may seem the most presentable to the most people. I like the walls because the real me isn't pretty. The real me struggles with many, many things . . . but, in my own silly self-defense, the real me tries so very hard. Then there are those mornings when I realize the real me just has to have faith and on those days my walls aren't quite so high and sometimes the inner joy slips out and over the top and I think - yes, I believe it will work out - yet still knowing it all comes and it all goes.
I got to work today on a number of smaller detailed items. First off I went to the freezer and pulled out some freezer cookies for Hubby to have for supper and put them in the oven. I also put a round steak in the oven. We're going to have Browned Beef and Gravy tomorrow for supper. This is something I can cook today and serve tomorrow (for the most part). I also decided to make some Homemade Almond Milk. I've read so much about making almond milk and I do love the taste of the store-bought stuff. My oldest son had bought me some almonds awhile back and I froze them and decided now was the time to get them out, make some milk and also flour from the leftover pulp. So my almonds are currently soaking. Also, when I was down in the basement getting the almonds, the cookies and some corn out of the freezer I noticed that a couple of my pumpkins were beginning to rot so I also decided to bring them upstairs, get them cut open and the seeds scooped out. Some of them I'll save for seed and the rest will be roasted for snacks. I took the rest of the pumpkins and put them in the compost pile. No waste here!!
Time to start supper. We're having Swiss Steak, Mashed Potatoes and Corn on the Cob tonight.
