Very fun "God"incidence today. A couple of teacher buddies were visiting around dinner time when a nurse's aid (not assigned to this room, but helping out) came in and looked at one of my friends and said, "I know you," then to me, "and you." She was a former student! How fun was that. She's going to be a nurse.
I have to confess. I did get "grounded" from screen time today. My blood pressure was up a bit. Since I had been on a little longer than normal, I could understand that. I promptly obeyed and rested. All is well. Going to limit screen time from now on.
Continue to be in awe at how well I feel, all things considered. Of course, the thoughts in my devotional were very appropriate for today :
Understanding will never bring you Peace. That's why I have instructed you to trust in Me, not in your understanding. Human beings have a voracious appetite for trying to figure things out, in order to gain a sense of mastery over their lives. But the world presents you with an endless series of problems. As soon as you master one set, another pops up to challenge you. The relief you had anticipated is short-lived. Soon your mind is gearing up again: searching for understanding (mastery), instead of seeking Me (your master)...My Peace is not an elusive goal, hidden at the center of some complicated maze. Actually, you are always enveloped in Peace, which is inherent in My Presence. As you look to Me, you gain awareness of this precious Peace. (Jesus Calling by Susan Young, p.233)I have to admit, my toes were a bit sore after this one. Being a science teacher, I believe that science is man's feeble attempt to try to figure out how God does things. Maybe sometimes I need to try not so hard to figure out how He does things, just rest in the fact that He does!
