Responsible


I have been having a hard time stringing any thoughts together, but I’m going to try to piece something together here.

My sister-in-law is in labor. Noah will be born this morning, and I am so excited, not only to meet him but also to meet the updated version of my sister, after labor, after finally holding a chunky, moving body with eyes and ears and mouth, ready for taking in, a spirit untouched until her arms.

It’s a heavy thing to think of how blank our babies are with experience, and it’s too big a thought to consider the Alpha and Omega and the days that were written before they even take a breath. It’s our job to find our responsibility in between God’s sovereignty and this world’s circus of options.
…………………..
I have a whole blog to write in random thoughts. It’s possible that will come in a second installment today, but first I have to do some things to make this house marketable because we are selling it. Yessiree Bob, we are selling our house in this market just like everyone else. That story is also to come.

"Circus of options"...well said. Our responsibility and His sovereignty... let me know when you get some clarity on that one. :)

I'm hoping that I get it soon. Either I'm saying "Doe Di Doe, God is Sovereign," or I'm saying, "oh no, what am I going to do? There are boogers everywhere!"

Where is the rest in His sovereignty without the foolishness of prayerless days and caution to the wind? Am I making any sense? Am I missing something?

I can outline my theology for you. BUT, in my actual thought-life and action-life, how do I take on the right responsibility?

Sorry Jen, not moving to Nashville any time soon, but we are moving to Grandma's rock house. Cool, huh?
