It is cool this morning. Another welcome sign of Autumn. I start on the chemo pills this morning. The sooner you start, the sooner you finish. No time to procrastinate.
The little fellow to the right here probably did not know what hit him. Hopefully you can see the spider with another insect in its clutches. My mother spotted this one on my Hamlin Sweet orange tree. The spider definitely has a mouth full.
This reminds me of the scripture about satan who is described as a "roaring lion seeking whom he may devour". We have to be alert at all times to those things which can harm us physically - most people want to preserve their body from harm, but not too many seem to want to preserve their soul/spirit from harm. I am not judging others, just an observation, many are not aware or could care less because they have not been enlightened. The Word says to "guard your heart, for from it flows the issues of life". We need to consider the things we watch, read and listen to. We are called to a higher standard - not self righteous or conceited - but a holy standard. Living in this world will get your feet dirty, but Jesus told Peter that he didn't need a bath, just his feet washed since he had been cleansed by the Words Jesus had spoken. We will get dirty feet, but daily confession to the Lord and repentance takes care of that. God has made a provision for us through Christ.
LSU plays today. All of mine are at a Volleyball tournament all day. I have a birthday party I was invited to and my dad wants me to hit a few garage sales with him. That stuff wears me out, so we set a time limit and a location and then stick to the plan. I buy books - about God, old Bibles, tree books, math books, those really big picture/coffee table books. Other stuff, too,
but if it is over a dollar or two, I usually pass on it. He has had to back off of the purchaes due to my mother revolting against him coming home with a truck bed full of "stuff"- but with no place to put the "stuff". This is a good way to spend time together - modern man's version of the "hunt" I guess you could say.
I had to go to two Dr.s yesterday to check my port site, it looked like it was trying to get infected, but they say it was not, but to remain cautious and keep an eye on it.
There is one spot that has yet to close off that was the concern.
Well, I am going to go. I have to take my "chemo-soby" within 30 minutes of the meal. Check this out - 3 eggs, 4 pcs. of toast and moma's home made pear preserves for breakfast. Gotta' eat while I can!
Don't be like that little spider's victim - but be wise and have a great weekend! Get out and do something with the family and enjoy the weather together.
God Bless. Matthew chapters 5, 6 & 7. Great reading. It will encourage you. GW
