Wednesday in the Word-God has a sense of humor!

You ever had one of those mornings that it seems from the time you get out of the bed that "STUFF" just starts happening? Like irritating, crazy, little mundane things that cause you to STOP and take a deep breath and say, OKAY LORD, what's UP?

My morning started out like that! Let me paint the scene for you....

After drinking 1/2 cup of coffee I suddenly drop the cup spilling coffee onto my kitchen floor. I cleaned it up. I fix another cup of coffee took one sip and suddenly dropped it on my kitchen counter spilling it on the counter, the floor and wetting one piece of mail I intended on mailing out.

I then just casually notice that the wall phone (yes I still have a wall phone as well as cordless phones) has splattered coffee on it so I go to wipe it off and apparently I picked up at the same time someone was calling in. So, I hear a voice at the other end say, "Is this the high school? (people are always getting our numbers confused) Of course I say no, you have the wrong number.

The lady apologizes, I hang up the phone and wipe it off. The phone rings again.....Same lady, same wrong number. FOR A 3rd TIME, the phone rings...guess who??????? YES! Same lady, wrong number. 

I finally get ready to leave my house and begin grabbing my daily gear...the cell phone, my water bottle, and my lunch. I opened the door to go to my car to put my daily carry-with-me items in the car and as I go to close the door I feel something slimy and wet all over my hand! OH YES...none other than a green frog and he peed on me!

I sling the green frog to the other side of my porch as it scared me too death and of course went to wash my hands. By this time I am really thinking out loud, "LORD, is there something going on today that I need to know? Then I made my last round as I always do before leaving my house to make sure all lights are off and there was my answer!!!! Barely sticking out from underneath a pillow on my couch was my daily devotional book! The very place where I normally sit in the mornings to have my coffee and spend time alone with God...to talk to Him and hear from Him.....I stopped! Sat down on my couch and asked God to forgive me for not beginning my day with Him. 

But then I laughed....and I laughed...and I laughed!

Our Lord has a sense of humor and He does loves us regardless! 

My devotional was based on James 1:2  "Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy." All I could do was laugh! The Lord has a way even in the small, mundane, and crazy things in our life to get our attention! He got MINE this morning!

  5. Bahahahaha! Cindy - this post had me giggling and shaking my head. How wonderful - how gentle - the Lord is so gracious! This sounds like a great opening scene for a show - love it!

    Thanks for stopping by my place and enjoying my teatimes. I'm putting a little booklet together for our 90 year old for her fancy birthday party next week. It will have all the little articles the girls wrote about her. Turning to my crafting this summer and opening and Etsy shop, too! Transitions - need to post about that soon.

    As to my medicinal teatime and oils - you can visit our Ross Roads Wellness Fellowship website featuring Young Living Essential Oils at www.ylscents.com/rossroads where you can learn more. It has changed our life as we've been making a five year journey to get chemical free, drug free, whole foods organic, and re-dicovering God's plan for healthy living as we steward our bodies to His glory. I don't think we'd be doing half of what we're doing today in ministry if the Lord did not lead us in this. We'd be burdened with doctor appointments and "health cares" - if you know what I mean . . .

    Message me if you want more details - it's all online.

    Joy!

  7. Great post and good reminder to begin the day in the Word. I'm guilty of allowing my "to do list" to distract me some mornings.

  8. Cindy,

    Thanks for the timely reminder. My life is spinning so fast that I forgot GOD. Gee, I wonder why I feel so overwhelmed.

  12. That is hilarious. Don't you just love when God allows every day things to get our attention focused back on Him where it belongs?

  13. Oh Cindy, how funny! Yes, He does have a way of getting our attention. BTW I still have a wall phone too..I don't know why because I never use it. :)

  14. Good Morning Cindy!!! At least I hope today is starting out good for you and why shouldn't it, it's Friday!! You sure put a smile on my face with this post. I can just picture the whole thing. Of course your illustrations help. lol. It's a good thing you know to spot our Father's sense of humor at work. Otherwise you may have never even spotted the book and I can only imagine how the rest of your day would have gone. I'm lovin' your pretty pink blog look! It suits you so well. Enjoy your weekend

    Hugs...Tracy @ Cotton Pickin Cute
