Flexible Moments

My daughter called today to see if I could head north to fill in for an unexpected childcare need.

I got ready to go and had half the stuff needed in the car for a sleep over when she called to say one of her appointments wasn’t going to work out. So I quickly backed out when she said I could still come up for a visit.

I had started to clear the pantry before leaving. I also wanted to grocery shop, so even though I was disappointed, I re-adjusted my plans back to the original.

Then, just before I left the house a second time, a good friend called to catch up and we spoke for almost an hour. I did some straightening while we visited, so that was a plus.

The weather forecasters said we were in for a big storm tonight and tomorrow, so I felt better about staying home after I heard that. Some of the store shelves were empty, especially in the produce section. The first time I saw empty shelves at our store I was startled. It’s a rare occurrence. People must have shopped earlier because the store wasn’t that busy.

Sometimes I thank God for His provision because I’m mindful that some people face hunger due to shortages where they live or because of a lack of money to buy food. It’s a wonderful thing when people help others out. Jesus spoke of helping the poor. Matthew 25:31, (KJV):  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

Mat 25:32  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

Mat 25:33  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

Mat 25:34  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Mat 25:35  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Mat 25:36  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Mat 25:37  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

Mat 25:38  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Mat 25:39  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

Mat 25:40  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

I hope you are having a great day. May God bless you.
