Late again and brief again. The subjects deserve better.
I made it to church services this morning. The vehicle seemed fine. Whew! We had lunch and enjoyed the moments together at the outside table.
And then Wife needed to run an errand, so we did. Just about 2-1/2 miles each way, and home, feeling chipper. I parked, still feeling good about the vehicle.
Then, well, we were outside near it, and I took a look and noticed what looked like antifreeze dripping down onto the driveway. Not a gush, not that, but definitely dripping. We (meaning my nephew-in-law next door who does mechanic work, and Yours Truly) took a look, It's not certain,. but it looks like a leak from the radiator. Not what I need right now, or ever. I have a tube of stop leak that I'll put in tomorrow and we will hope and pray that it Does The Job.
The cleanup from The Great Yard Sale is mostly done. I definitely broke the Sabbath (and, yes, I know that Sunday is not technically Sabbath, but there is a principle there) dragging stuff around as directed. Done now. Mostly at least.
I was doing for Wife as she is in great pain, back pain this time. It would appear that she is having some UTI stuff, meaning bladder. I dug out and gave her some OTC stuff we had for this -- she has this issue frequently.
And it's now after 8:30. Neither have had dinner. I'll dig out some leftovers in a bit. Fun life we lead.
The Old Testament passage for the day is chapters 40, 41, and 42 of Job, concluding the book.
The Lord has shown up and it had to be a rough scolding.
And then He restored Job's state, and blessed him. That is wonderful, Job was faithful.
I do admit to some wonder about the others. Job's life was restored. His departed children and servants, dating back to the events in the early part of the account, no. Now, that is not necessarily an indictment of them. Bad ends in this life do not necessarily imply God's wrath or eternal condemnation. Job's account proves that. There are some things we don't know. I think some of us know of situations even in our time where, say, the small children of godly parents are killed in accidents or terrible diseases. We ask why, which is understandable, but sometimes we get no answer. Perhaps we will meet them on the Other Side.
Our New Testament reading is verses 22-41 in chapter 15 of the Acts of the Apostles.
More of what was going on in the growth of the early church.
