Listening to tunes and making cookies on this cold, snowy, windy Colorado evening. I always liked Bob Seger and this is one of my faves. I do laugh at myself because I actually have so many faves but maybe you do too!
Those of us who live in Colorado have several sayings about the weather. The story is if you want the weather to change just wait 15 minutes or you’ll hear ‘only in Colorado”. I think that has been true all over the states this year, a different year for sure. Last night when I came home from work it was 67 degrees, warm and sunny. Today was windy, cold and it snowed all day. It wasn’t cold enough for the snow to pile up as most of it melted. I can’t wait to see the wild flowers on the prairie this year because of all the moisture. I want to get in my car, take my camera and capture some beauty, DV!
It’s tough going in banking! There are so many regulations because of the fiasco of the mortgage industry which cause the little community banks to suffer greatly. It isn’t a fun job anymore but I’m thankful for what the Lord has provided. I can’t believe I’ve been working there 21 years this month. I remember in vivid detail the first day I went to work, I was scared to death and didn't think I could learn. I would sing every morning before I got out of bed "This is the day that the Lord hath made" so that I could remember to rejoice in His providence. Little did I know that the job He had given me to do was one He had equipped me to do. The ways in which He grows us and teaches us in our experiences still amaze me sometimes.
We are doing a bible study in a book by John G. Reisinger titled “Abraham’s Four Seeds” –A biblical examination of the presuppositions of Covenant Theology and Dispensationalism. Mr. Reisinger is of neither persuasion; instead he is a New Covenant theologian and he has much the same mind set that we do although there are some things that we disagree with. The Lord continues to bless us in growing in grace and in knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I’m still thinking spring
Grace and Peace!
