Cara and I went shopping last night. She had some birthday presents to get, and Jon and I are working on brightening up our bedroom. We had a really good time and were able to find what we were looking for. We also went to see some friends - a very pleasant time of fellowship.
The evening out helped to calm some of the knots in my stomach. The Lord helped me to see again that He has planned every tiny detail of the path we are walking. Maybe you'll laugh (I did), but a Scripture passage that jumped out at me yesterday morning was Matthew 10: 29-31. Now, I know you'll all run to look it up to see what made me laugh.
Okay, okay...I'll save you the trouble. Jesus was talking to his disciples. "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall to the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are numbered. Fear not therefore; you are of much more value than many sparrows."
So, a new take for me on numbering my hairs. Losing my hair has been a touchy subject. And God cares about that. By the way, I found out that the American Cancer Society will provide me with two free wigs. I wonder if God counts fake hairs?
