The hole in the ground
I just heard my husband say to someone on the phone, "Only the Lord knows."
We have been waiting to put DIRT in the hole where our pool was taken out
earlier this summer but it has rained and rained. You would think this would be
an easy thing to order and do. Today was to be another the day but it was raining much of the early morning.Then tomorrow but"only the Lord knows" because the dirt they are bringing is wet and there is water in the hole. But there seemed to be an echo in my head hearing those words:
"Only the Lord knows"
If someone knows something, you ask them and you need to listen.
This is sort of like my son needing to come tonight to teach my daughter
this next part in Alg. 2. She didn't know how to do it and couldn't move forward.
They are out on the porch in this delicious cool summer evening doing math.
( he loves it : accountant; she doesn't especially love it but is doing better with
Our heavenly Father knows all things, even before they happen.
Sometimes I seem to think He is up to something when there is lots of
waiting and it is going to be more marvelous. Absolutely. I start looking for
reasons too. Start asking Him because He knows.
He sees around the corners of time.
