Work with me for a second. Or, maybe humor me for a second.
And....please don't think I'm weird. Weird about these cows I keep talking about and am obviously obsessed with! :)
It's Wednesday morning and it's my Bible study day at my house. However, most of the group could not come.....there is only about 9 of us when we are all here....so, when 2/3 of us couldn't be here....I had to make a decision to take a week off and resume next week. That was hard for me to do.
So...I have enjoyed the quiet morning at home. Fighting a cold. Enjoying the must needed rest that I have been craving. Just not in the form of a cold though.
For several Wednesdays in a row....a certain group of "girls" are showing up in my yard. And...here they are ready for a Word maybe?? Some encouragement from me??
A little "talkin to" from their pesky woman neighbor that runs outside every time they get this close???
I don't know.
Here are the girls today....
A Momma and a daughter
After annoying them by taking pictures and telling them how precious they are....
I told the "girls" to get along today....I told the "girls" to enjoy the beautiful day God has given us......I told the "girls" to be nice to one another....I told the "girls" to include the one that is a little different than the rest...
Who said these cows don't teach me anything??? They remind me of the simple things every single Wednesday they show up for Bible study.....
Is this coincidental?? I don't know. I think God and I are having a little fun together through them. They won't be around for long. The owner, Mr. Smith, will sell them all soon. I'll probably shed a tear when I realize they are gone and gone who knows where.
So....I came back inside and enjoyed a little study time with this precious woman!!!!
Ms. Beth taught out of Revelation and showing us examples of our Alpha and Omega God.
We see that He is the one "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty."
Our God is the Almighty One of our "is" right now. Don't get hung up on the "was" or the "is to come." Let Him be the "is" of our "is" right now. Don't spend all your efforts and thoughts on worrying about the future that hasn't even happened yet.
Let Him be the Almighty of your "is" right this second.
He is an "is" kind of God!
Have a blessed day....no matter who your friends and teachers are....cows are great friends! Ha!
I've clearly got issues.
