Tonight I’m cooking New England boiled brisket with baby carrots, onion, red potatoes, and cabbage. The meat is boiling, and I can relate. I’ve been working on the web site today to try to find a new, pretty skin for it that is more “me,” and to work on the margins (the margins need to be left justified, and tech support won’t get back with me). It’s been a frustrating afternoon, and it seems as if little was accomplished. But let’s put things into perspective here. I just got a phone call that our friend’s daughter Stephanie, who was in labor since 8 a.m. today, just had a C-section. She’s in a lot of pain right now. Stephanie has had a heck of a time with this pregnancy with pre-eclampsia, was admitted to the hospital a month ago to monitor her and keep her on constant bed rest. She was only 36 weeks along today, but now at least 7 lb 4 oz, healthy baby girl Erica is here! Praise the Lord! The web site irritations seem minor now, and I am taking a moment to adjust my vision and to focus on the more important things like prayer.
“Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things, But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41
Brisket boiling, with baby carrots, onion, red potatoes, and cabbage.
Don’t let your troubles cause you to “boil over” with frustration….choose like Mary did, and sit at Jesus’ feet, listening to Him, and pray.
