Actually, I'm kind of creeped out by the raccoon that keeps meandering through the backyard in the middle of the daylight hours. The trio of parrots were fun, though.
The next day I went to bible study and the focus of the study was on God's covenant to Abram. It fell on my like a ton of bricks.
Genesis 15: 1
After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision:
It doesn't say I will be your great reward. It says I am your very great reward. In a way, it was like God spoke to my heart and said "Chill out. Enjoy these years with your little ones. Stop looking to the worldly stuff and just take care of your family. You already have your very great reward. It's me. "
And that is sweeter than anything else in this world.
