Today I was planning so many things to do. Our turn for serving soup was here and I wanted to help. However, I have a sermon to preach tomorrow and a LOT of studying to do to finish up my Greek course. (It seems as if the closer I get to the final, the more stuff is filling up my evenings and keeping me from studying.)
Anyway, last night I went out. My friend, A, was involved in a show with some of her art and I really wanted to go both to support her and to see her latest works. So I did. The glass of wine was a nice way to relax as I walked around with other friends and we took in the show. I was so tired last night having spent a good part of the day in the OR. And other friends were there and told me that I would only be needed for a part of the day to help in the soup kitchen. That bit of news was such a relief.
Then this morning I got a call and was told that so many other folks from church had come to help that they would not need me at all.
There was another load lifted away! I love to help and so I miss being there but this time studying and sermon prep did need to take priority. I see this as one of the little ways that God watches out for me. It might just look like luck to you but whatever, I see God in this.
So, I have been studying pretty much all day, except for a trip up to Canadian Tire to pick up a few necessities.
Now, since it is finally warm again, I might just take the bike out for a few minutes.
