Wednesday, February 23, 2011
I had PLANS to attend my bible study today at the church but I didn't know it had been cancelled.  I was the only one in the parking lot and happened to bring along the book I started last night called, The Power Of Suffering by John MacArthur, Jr.  It really is a very good book and the author is very profound in his writings.  He wants to bring you up to the challenge of strengthening your faith in the refiner's fire.  I'm a slow reader so this is a perfect book for me.  I'm thinking the car is the best place to read a book.  Very quiet and time for reflection of what I just read. 
The afternoon was as wonderful as the morning.  I worked on a quilt and our 10 year old Amish neighbor girl came with a plate of oatmeal raisen cookies.  I say thank you Lord for this beautiful day even if it didn't go as I PLANNED.
God gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him.
"The mind of man PLANS his way, but the Lord directs his steps."
Proverbs 16:9 NASB
Love, grandma
