In Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me

It is a breezy, rainy Thursday here in coastal Carolina, but it is warm. We have the air conditioning on because it is like 75 degrees and humid. I am off from work today until Monday because my mother is coming to visit. About two hours after I spoke with her last night she phoned and said she is feeling much better. God is faithful, a God of knowledge.

This morning I feel grumpy. I’ve had several phone calls from the guy filling in for me today; it seems like time off can never be a complete disconnect from the workplace. Plus, Sikki and I had to go to the landfill with an old couch and some other stuff first thing, in the rain. My “get up and go” got up and went this morning. I was annoyed with her at the landfill because I felt like she didn’t listen to what I was saying about something. Now she is cleaning our house like crazy, in this very room, and I still feel grumpy. If the end of the world were proclaimed effective tomorrow morning, I think my wife would spend her entire last night on earth cleaning the house.

Such is married life. On the way to the dump I praised God for this day, and for her, and for our family and all the opportunities that one day represents in this life. My family is en route at the present moment.

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
