No makeup. Stretchy pants. Comfy couch.
It’s the #fmfparty.
I can’t speak highly enough of this group of people. Most of us have never met in person, and yet there is genuine love. Real friendship. Laughter and tears, prayers and pondering. I shake my head even now thinking about the wonderful happenstance of it all.
The wonderful working of God.
I’m not sure what Kate was thinking with this prompt tonight. We write about: ten.
Ten Truths: Some That are Universal and Others That Should Be
* You are beloved by the Creator of the universe.
* When crabby, take a nap.
* Dogs are better than cats & Pepsi is better than Coke.
* Choose life. Get help.
* Leggings are not pants.
* Quality over quantity.
* Women – all women, all sizes, all shapes, all ages, all ethnicities – are beautiful.
* Cilantro tastes like soap.
* Writing soothes the soul.
* Jesus saves. Every time.
In the comments, my friend pointed out that I forgot to include two very important things:
* “Meat should never be in the shape of a loaf and nothing edible should ever jiggle as much as jello does.”
Coming back to edit (which I’m not supposed to do).
I decided to look and see what book of the Bible comes in at the 10th slot, and then go to the 10th verse of the 10th chapter. Doing so took me here:
“And the rest of the people he put under the command of Abishai his brother, that he might set them in battle array against the people of Ammon.” – 2 Samuel 10:10 (NKJV)
This is quite interesting, for the context here is an Israelite battle against the Ammonites and Syrians. A battle that occurred at the apex of King David’s reign. Following this are Bathsheba, Tamar’s desolation and “Absalom, my son, my son.” Years of sin and strife and struggle.
David forgot, for a time, to stay engaged in the battle.
Something to ponder.
