I am so tired. It is barely time for bed. Yes, I suppose I am still whining about the cold. If only my cold would just be gone. I had a very pleasant day. With all the sickness, emotional breakdowns and revelations in February, I am coming out of the month with so much energy. Occasionally I bounced about my day today. Like Tigger. Bong. Bong. Bong.
Esther and Daniel are my books of the week this week. I think I will refrain from commenting on them until I have read them again. I really have been enjoying this Bible reading plan. I think it is my favorite so far. Well, I will say this. I have been trying to read straight through, as if for the first time, while leaving prior prejudices behind. Reading this way, Esther seemed like a toy at the mercy of all the men in her life.
I went to an SSA meeting today. I did not look against it energy wise. I was quite excited to go by the time I went. Usually, such things drain me of a lot of energy. So my day was basically reading Scripture, sleeping, watching a few TV shows, going to an SSA meeting, and some time loving a friend. It is always such a privilege to get to love people.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ – Matthew 25:34-40
