It has been awhile since I blogged. Recently I have been pondering time. How sometimes I seem to have alot of free time, and yet I get alot of need to do things done. Other times it seems no matter how long or hard I work I never have free time. Some times I find plenty of time to spend in God's word and others I struggle to find 10 minutes to spend there. Sometimes I have lots of time to blog and read blogs and other times I can barely glimpse at the ones I follow.

Ecc 3:1 says: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

This makes me understand a little better that these seasons are normal. And therefore all I can do is go with what God has for me right now in this time/season. But sometimes that is not easy for me. Cause I would rather do something else. That is where obedience to God comes in. Just as a child gets upset when they are made to do something that they don't feel like doing, I also get upset. And then I hear God say, my child, just obey and trust Me. And then I repent, trust and obey. Why must I ever doubt or want my own way? Well because I am still in this earthly body and still have a will.

But today I take comfort in this next verse: Phil 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

So here is how I have obeyed so far this week. I started my spring cleaning a month earlier then normal and have my kitchen almost finished. I just have the cabinet doors and floor left to clean. Oh and the top of the fridge lol. I always seem to forget about that.

Today I cleaned a house with my youngest daughter. She has a house or two that she cleans that are very large and it is much easier if I help her with those. And it gives me a little extra spending money in these trying economic times. So all that will be done here at my home today is the regular things that are done on a daily basis. Tomorrow I will finish up the kitchen, cook a nice supper for my family, and start on either the living room, bathroom or our bedroom.

Praying this finds you safe, heathy and blessed.

I have weeks like that too...I think we all do. I'm so glad we don't walk alone though! Extra spending money from helping your daughter must be fun! It's nice you help her too!

Love, Mere
