Matters ranging from important to trivial suck the time from my day faster than Superman's speeding bullet. Faster than the speed of light. Faster than me slurping down a chocolate shake. Almost.
Disruptions that can't be ignored, like dog vomit...and worse...on the carpet. And they're not even our dogs.
Note: My folks call it "doggie doo-doo."
But when it comes to my rugs it's definitely a "doggie don't-don't."
But as I knelt to perform a Lysol Carpet Baptismal Service, ancient words came to mind. The writer and his colleagues daily faced danger and possible death for sharing their beliefs. Paul wrote:
"...since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we never give up...
...We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord...
- We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed.
- We are perplexed, but not driven to despair.
- We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God.
- We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.
For our present troubles are small and won't last very long.
