Goodbye Mr. Snowman, Spring is here....well, almost. It's here in spurts anyway. This is a cookie jar Mum bought me at the nursing home.....I just love it. Last night I made a card using collage and enjoyed it so much. Should have posted a picture of it..hmm. Next time perhaps. I'm going to make some Easter cards tonight and that will be so enjoyable. It gives me the artistic license that I so enjoy. And, tonight will I knit?? Hope so...smile.

In my devotions I am reading through the book of Numbers. As I was reading along through much repetition it struck me that how wise that repetition is. God was making it very hard for anyone to make a mistake that way, it was written down and repeated and repeated. That would make me feel very comfortable. And repetition is a wonderful thing...like hearing from our loved ones or friends that they care about us. How much more important to hear from the Word of God, that God cares for us beyond what we could ever comprehend or deserve. That very thought makes my sinful heart repent and turn my face towards heaven....and towards the Bible, that is God's own word to mankind.....and all because "God is love".

I get so lost in my bible readings sometimes. Trying to understand or like you said the repeating of things over and over. I am trying so hard to be patient and let it sink in instead of rushing thru what I don't understand. Thanks for reminding me its God's word and there's a reason for how things are written.

Ken and I just got THROUGH Numbers and a big "amen" to your impression of why it's written 'as is'!! We're in Job now...
