If someone asked you what's the point of life how would you answer?
Sometimes I wonder.
I shouldn't wonder. I know better. I have been a Believer since March of 1988 and have seen God do miraculous things every year of my life since then (and He did miraculous things before that -- He does for everyone. It rains on the just and the unjust. He blesses the Believer and the nonbeliever...all good things are straight from Him).
I harvested some blue potatoes earlier this week. Most of them are pretty small. I only harvest a few just to see where they were at in their growth cycle. I knew it was too early but we've had some mighty cold weather lately. The ones I picked are baking in my oven right now and I can smell them. When you can smell what you are baking it is about done cooking.
If you ever wonder what the point is like I do just keep going forward. Keep doing what needs doing. Keep holding on when you want to let go. Keep getting out of bed and drinking in that morning air.
So that is what I'm going to do. I'm going to do what needs doing -- starting with getting those blue potatoes out of the oven.
And then I probably will go sit beside my 15 year old son and watch a show.
And then I will make some pork chops for the family and my husband with his broken wrist will soon walk through the door. And when he does I'll give him a hug and tell him I'm glad he's home.
And I may still wonder but then before I know it my head can hit the pillow and morning will come and God's mercies will be new again. Thank you Jesus.
