Dichotomies & Venn Diagrams

It’s been a mixed bag the last couple weeks with some people really getting what’s important (praise God!) … and others totally not having a clue.

Is it just me, or do you feel a Venn diagram coming on? I’ll get right on that … people who get it, people who don’t, people who take action, lollygaggers, haters …

I have to laugh at the haters. Which is probably cruel, judgmental, and totally not Christ-like. I should probably pray for them and my own attitude instead.

Sometimes you get so used to what’s going on in your own little acre of the universe that it’s easy to forget … a lot of people don’t have the faintest idea what’s going on in your world. You might just have to fill them in.

I volunteered at a big convention recently … whatever they needed, from checking wristbands, to holding duct tape for someone standing on a stool, to directing people to the correct area of the convention center. There were three conferences going on at the same time – ours, a well-known motivational speaker, and an adult film industry expo. Aaaaaaaahhhhh! Yes, you read that right.

Directing traffic to an adult expo … definitely on the list of things I never thought I’d do. But sometimes God surprises you with a task, and you just have to smile and say, “Yes, registration is down the hall to your left.” J

(There but for the grace of God and oh-by-the-way-really???? You know there’s a better way, right? You know you’re worth more than that, right? Sigh.)

So anyway.

God is providing, just like always. In his own time, definitely not mine, just like always. And he’s whispering to me again. Which means, of course, I’m actually laughing at – ok, hopefully with – the almighty and telling him he’s out of his mind. Well ok fine, go ahead, show me … 

Oh he is soooooo hilarious and pleased with himself this time, but then he’s God, he can do what he wants, that’s how he rolls.

For as much angst as has been going around, I’m actually pretty content with a lot of stuff right now. It’s good to know who you are & whose you are. So bring it on, haters and judgers. I have the telepathic connection to my prayer partners, the full armor of God, and an oversized serving of peace & joy.

Grinning like the Cheshire cat … JJJJJ
