Restoring the Joy
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
I love God; He's got such a sense of humor!
I've been praying lately about restoration of relationships. In the past couple of months:
a high school friend contacted me through Facebook
a cousin called to talk (I hadn't heard from her since 1985)
my best friend when I was 8 years old contacted me through Facebook (I haven't heard from her in 40 years!)
a good friend in Dallas called to "catch up"--she's so busy we hardly ever talk
this morning my cousin in CA called; we've been trying to connect off and on for a couple of years, but we've both moved so much that it didn't happen.
Also, I had my first review at work and my boss said that he can't guarantee it, but he might be able to move me to day shifts in the photo dept. in a month or two. Praise God! No more overnight shifts. Although there are blessings in the overnight shift; it would be really nice to have a normal sleep schedule.
On top of that, my roommate was reading in Job yesterday and asking me questions that had me looking up the answers in blueletterbible.org (original Greek & Hebrew) and was amazed at the answers!
Did you know that dinosaurs are mentioned in Job 40:14? Or that almost all of chapter 41 is about a dragon that God created? It says Leviathon, but when I looked up the original text said dragon! How fun is that? Our God is so creative and amazing. We humans can only copy what He's done in literature and art.
