Quiet day today. Wife is pretty much horizontal. We have yet another doctor appointment for Monday morning, will discuss the findings of the tests performed on her over the last two weeks of issues and stresses. Not sure what will be the findings. From what they let slip, I don't think they'll be doing the gall bladder removal after all, though they seemed hot to trot on that at first. So we really don't know if it's gall blader, or recurrent pleurisy (chronic with her) or something else. Could be any of them, or all, or something else. This is part of the "fun" of what the docs call her "complex condition".
Just hanging on.
And in any event, we're entering into a special time of the year. This coming Sunday is celebrated as Palm Sunday, the commemoration of Jesus' "Triumphal Entry" into Jerusalem to shouts of praise and joy. Followed in just a few days by shouts of "Crucify Him!!" by some of the same people. And then Easter. A special time of the year, and one that forces me to consider what He has done and is doing in my life and what I owe to Him. Doesn't make me look very good.
Lots of music in mind today.
Two with same title, but very different lyrics and arrangements
I Surrender this version ran through my head for the last several nights. Makes for some interesting dreams and half-awake thoughts.
Praise You In This Storm
but the one that was in mind when I woke
Where He Leads Me I Will Follow
See a common thread in all of these?
The day's Old Testament readings take us to chapters 15, 16, and 17 of the Judges. The first two have more of the story of Samson. The last, gives a picture of the disarray in Israel. Not quite the results that Moses, Caleb, and Joshua had hoped for.
The reading from the New Testament is verses 1-24 of Luke chapter 10.
The disciples are going forth, as directed, and proclaiming Jesus and the Kingdom. And getting some results.
