Tonight my youngest daughter and her family were over for awhile. It was very nice to see ALL OF THEM, but frankly, the nine month old stole the show. She is just learning to crawl, speak and to really interact with others. She loves the cuckoo clock. Toys are nice, but a plastic bag is just her speed. Remember days like that, when simple things held your attention forever. Even when you get to be SEVERAL YEARS OLD, uncomplicated things like blowing these bubbles can hold your interest (the bubbles used to be much, much smaller, but it didn't really matter. As you grow up, your thoughts become more complicated and you become sophisticated. However, knowing God should not be like that, no matter how old you are. Listen to the words of Jesus:
Matthew 18:2-4 WEB (R)
(2) Jesus called a little child to himself, and set him in the midst of them,
(3) and said, "Most certainly I tell you, unless you turn, and become as little children, you will in no way enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
(4) Whoever therefore humbles himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Every single time I begin to think I really know something.... wham, something happens and whatever pride I have goes right out the window. Today was like that. I have been working with PC's ever since the middle eighties and using Bible Study Programs like PC Study Bible and e-Sword. On the advise of a friend I downloaded, installed and played with a new Bible Study Program called "The Word". This held my attention for hours and I realized that I could do a great deal with it. The best part.... its free!!!! Now I have to really start learning it and I won't really accomplish that until I take the attitude that Jesus talks about in Matthew 18. I pray that I might spiritually age backwards and learn all over again to enjoy the simple things in life. Of course, that also means having the right attitude towards God. That's all for now, I feel the urge to do something fun... Humm, I wonder where Linda put the bubble blower?
