I have a cup of lovely coffee this morning.
My youngest is getting over a cold she had yesterday. I'm not sure if it was anything I gave her or my husband's suggestion she get a bucket this morning (my husband has this weird practice he says keeps him healthy...he goes outside when it is very cold wearing his swimsuit. Then he dumps an ice-cold bucket on his head -- five gallons of ice-cold water).
On the suggestion that we think about gelding my husband's stud horse, my husband says no, not until the sun quits rising. OK, well, he didn't say that but it was something equivalent to that. It was something about getting rid of all the females on our place -- not sure if that means me or not so I better not call the vet!
I read today about our main job as Believers -- we are supposed to be telling as many people as we can about Jesus. He gives hope and life and peace of mind. There is nothing better than being in a real relationship with Him. Truly. He isn't here to give you rules. Actually, following Him wholly His the exact opposite. Yes, there are things we aren't supposed to do, but anything God says no to is for our benefit. He calls us to be free and courageous and bold people in this world. Boy, the world needs us to be that way. It needs the light of Christ.
"Love never fails" 1 Corinthians 13:8a says.
We gotta love, love, love.
"Pursue love" says another place in scripture. This is the best way to live. And this isn't some shady sleezy kind of life. This is what the Greeks call AGAPE love. This is spiritual, selfless love, the kind that puts others first, their interests, their needs, what is best for them.
Paul writes in Philippians 2, "Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others."
So I guess I won't be talking about gelding the horse any more. He is awfully manly as far as a horse goes. Plus, he is so sweet toward people and he is absolutely beautiful.
I'll let my husband have his stud (since I have mine ).
