What about today?

Posted: February 26, 2022 in other

Here it is, the end of another day. I still have dishes to wash, but supper is ready! Who knew today I would finally write again after such a long time. It is the 26th of February 2022…. Over a year, I think, since I last entered a post.

Tonight I was wondering where the days seem to disappear and where they are going. Perhaps they seem shorter because I am 76 years old now. I am more tired than I was when I was 40.. That is for sure. Perhaps they are shorter because I seem to need a nap every day. Sleeping consumes time that could have been spent on something else. I have less hours left between now and eternity. I should fill them with all the things I want to accomplish, all the things I ever dreamed of doing, or all the things I never even imagined.

Today, I began to remember days from long ago. I remember playing in the yard as a kid, building mud roads for my cars, and I remember the barrel that Dad made me to ride on like a horse. Such fun. I remember jumping off the garage roof, and falling off the barn roof….. that almost killed me, but I never told my folks about it. After all, I wasn’t supposed to be on the stack of baled hay next to the barn, and who knew that the barn roof was going to be so slippery that I would just slide off it.

I remember taking mud coffee to my Dad, and him drinking it while we sat on a old log. He took a break from splitting logs to sit with me.

I remember what chicken looked like when you chopped their heads off and they jumped around slinging their blood all over the yard, and I remember how good those chickens tasted when Mom fried them up.

I remember my skinned knees from learning to roller skate. I remember when as a tyke, my Mom would take me to the kitchen and set me on the oven door to get dressed, because it was warmer. We had an old cook stove, and Dad always had wood to keep it going so Mom could cook. I remember the shadow pictures we would make on the walls because there was no such thing as electric lights, just kerosene lanterns that hung on the wall.

I remember my little Sister who could eat candy fast…. I was always slow. Tried to save some for later, but then she would cry and cry, and Mom would always make me give her some of mine. She learned that trick very young. LOL.

Today, I read a few of my posts on here, and had forgotten I had even written them. Some of full of the pains of my life and some the joys.

Why am I writing all this, knowing that soon the internet will probably be no more and everything I have written in the past will be gone forever… who knows. Just seemed like the thing to do. Today there is a battle going on in the Ukraine. Putin, of Russia is busy destroying the global cabal there, although few people understand what exactly is happening. The world is about to change drastically. It is hard to believe. I do believe we are going into 1000 years of peace, however I also think there will be a time of great tribulation before that occurs. I think we are on the brink. I may be wrong, but then I have been wrong so many times in my life, that it doesn’t much matter anymore. We will see what happens. I am not God and I am not a puppet master who pulls strings.

Today, I took time to dance to some music… It was fun. No one saw me… the dogs thought I was playing with them, and the music was being played by someone else.

My heart is at peace. Whatever will be, will be. The best part is knowing that God is in control, no matter what it looks like or feels like. HE KNOWS BEST. He knows the plans HE has for me, plans for good and not for evil to give me a hope and a future, and I am reminded that even in old age, I will remain vital.

Well that’s it for now. Have a good one! Be blessed! Trust in the Lord and seek HIM with your whole heart! He is the only one you can totally trust and rely on! And he is the one who loves you more than anyone else that exists!
