I have the AIX weather app on my phone. While it forecast rain for tomorrow afternoon, it certainly did not show the rain and thunder storms that we have had this evening!
#612 of my 1000 thanks is for this evening’s gentle soaking rain. What a gift. Earlier there was thunder and a lot of lightning. There is one thing that happens when there is thunder: Truffles rushes inside and takes cover, preferably on or close to a human…this was her on February 18th which was last time there was some lightening about….she was as clingy this evening.
When we left for the airport to pick up Julian, we left her inside and she sat tight until we returned.
Today has been quite a busy day. I did about 5 hours of work and had tea with friends. I also got to gym where I did the 3-30-30. It was 3km in 19 mins 11. Then I did 30 minutes on the bike (11.1km) and 30 lengths swimming (was about 25 minutes). Yesterday the Grid was grueling (squats and lunges) and so after the run today, my legs were kaput. It made the cycle today a lot of hard work. When I started swimming, my body didn’t really want to do what I asked it to! My arms were so tired from yesterday’s Grid (dumbbell lifts). Eventually, they warmed up, but by the time I finished length 30, I had had enough and I bolted! This evening I am super stiff!
Tomorrow, Mike has another eye injection. Praise the Lord for a great response to the medication. His eye is much much better and we are grateful to God for His provision.
Julian is back in Cape Town for Easter. It has rained. Mike’s eye is doing great. Life is good!
So do not be attracted by strange new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace.
These are the days.
Keep the smile going.
God bless you.
In His Grip,
Think cricket ball tampering saga:
There is no right way to do a wrong thing. What will it profit a man if he gains his cause, and silences his adversary, if at the same time he loses that humble tender frame of spirit in which the Lord delights, and to which the promise of his presence is made!
