So, What is on your menu?

Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday. It has been a snow filled Saturday for us here. A little over 4 inches where I live. It is unheard of to have three snows in a year here, and winter is likely far from over. I will try and post some pics later.

It has been hard to do a many of my projects without Microsoft Excel or Word. I am using a low grade of Open Office, and holding my breath that it will stay in one piece when I get the programs, as far as the formatting.

Anyway, I think lately I have kind of gotten away from what this blog is about which is to glorify God. That can be done a number of ways, but it cannot be done through pessimism or silence. As I sit here drinking my Ice Tea, one verse comes to mind. Matthew 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." I am quick to want filling, but how hungry and thirsty am I for righteousness? Sure I'm hungry for food, hungry for attention, affection. I'm thirsty for approval, a good story. Can it be said the same for righteousness? There is nothing right apart from Christ, as He is All that is RIGHT! When I am quick to pursue other lovers to be filled, I am disappointed every time. I am stubborn and want to control things, but the Bible says I will be blessed and filled if I pursue more of Christ, and less of me. See John 3;30. In a world where finding ourselves is seen as the goal, how do we die to self focus and shift to Christ focus? Any thoughts?

Hi, Thank you for caring T.J.-I am also glad we have become friends via the blog. At times Frank and I grow weary of him being sick and dealing with doctors and medical bills and lost dreams, but the Lord has been patient with us and continues to bless us and teach us things we would never had known about if we had not been put on this journey. Your post is very thought provoking and something all of us deal with. Just when I think my (self) is near renews itself. Some people die quick, others like myself .... die slowly, piece by piece. I wish I had that thirst for righteousness you write about..I desire it...but I do not think I thirst :( I pray your computer will meet your is unpleasant having to relearn. Enjoy your ***snow*** Hugs..Dee
