February 5, Time Out – Frazzzled by Life

KAL2012 003The second part of my favorite knitting toy;
the yarn is placed on the swift
and then threaded thru the metal guide
and on to the yarn winder.
After I turned the handle for a while
I get a yarn cake. Tomorrow’s picture.

Good Morning

If ye then, being evil,
know how to give good gifts unto your children,
how much more shall your Father which is in heaven
give good things to them that ask him? Matthew 7:11

A minister friend told me about a phone call he received one night.
At one or two in the morning, he was awakened by a caller
who was sobbing and rambling on in a way that made no sense.
Trying to wake up, calm the caller and make sense of the problem,
my friend became exasperated and said sternly,
“Now settle, down, get a grip on yourself and tell me your name.”
In a moment came the startled reply, “But, Dad, it’s me, Joel!.”
Instantly my friend was wide awake, totally sympathetic,
filled with love and compassion, listening to a tale of woe
only a college student pressured by grades, girls and loneliness can experience.
Why the sudden change?
It was his child.
No one on Earth mattered more to him.

When I am frazzled and call out to God,
He responds with total understanding, compassion and love.
For I am His child.
And so are you. ~~Eric Fellman

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Psalm 121:3

Call on God day or night . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
