I’ll begin by saying this, I love dishes! I may be obsessed. When we moved, I gave my Christmas dinnerware to my daughters. Over the past couple of months, I’ve been perusing the internet, trying to decide what to order. Then yesterday, I got a hair-brained idea to go to the Goodwill and possibly purchase a mix of dishes; I think that might be pretty too. As I began digging through all the plates, I started finding pieces to a set; I found an entire eight-piece place setting and all the matching bowls, dessert plates, with the cups and saucers! And they are beautiful! I bought everything they had, but unfortunately, that’s not enough for my entire family. Another lady looking at the dishes reminded me of another thrift store nearby with dinnerware, so I decided to go and found nine plates with cups and saucers and matching flatware! I will still have a mix, and it will make my table beautiful! God knows what I love, and I think sometimes he wants us to take a break from all the craziness surrounding us and enjoy the things he has given us a passion for. Today, I will be gardening, another passion of mine! Take a break from social media and enjoy the life God gave you and he will work out the details and save us from the world.
O LORD, your hand is lifted up, but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people, and be ashamed. Let the fire for your adversaries consume them. O LORD, you will ordain peace for us, for you have indeed done for us all our works. Isaiah 26:11-12
