this was to have gone out early last evening. Didn't. Went into a Black Hole I guess, not sure what happened. So this is in the nature of make-up work, for which apologies.
as we are reminded, This is the day the Lord hath made. We will rejoice in it.
But, as we are also aware, some days at least seem better than other days. Plans for the day were for Wife to go Next Door around 09:00 and to help niece, great-niece, and wife's sister in preparations for The Great Cookout Event on Sunday. And for me to run across town around 10:00 to help sort and pack books that are to go into an overseas container or two for shipments to mission operations in Kenya and in India.
But wife's ears had her in a heavy-duty vertigo situation, rather like being seasick. (it's called Meniere's Disease, FYI). With some of the same results, meaning she was throwing up all over the place. So the day's schedule got rearranged courtesy of force majeure I guess. (That's the Frenchified phrase I used to hear in my manufacturing days, when a major part of a resin supplier's equipment demolished itself and the train cars of the product that I needed wouldn't be coming and we better get with an alternate source. I got all too experienced at that). So we dug out some of the meds that we have on hand, prescribed for as-needed use in this type of situation, and by 11:00 or so she could stand and walk without hanging on to me or the wall.
So she went across the backyard to the "hen party", and I was able to head out to lend what small help I could. For an hour or two, until she called back and I had to come home and deal with stuff.
Life is like that some times.
Such is our life.
Our Old Testament passage is Psalms 53, 54, 55.
Psalm 53 reminds me of the morning news. Some things haven't changed, have they?
Our reading in the New Testament is verses 26-44 from chapter 27 in the Acts of the Apostles.
For those who somehow believe that the Christian life is boring, pay attention.
