I want the answer now! (LOL)
An American car
I am very guilty. When faced with a problem large or small, I want the answer, NOW! So I work my head to try and find the ‘correct’ one. I try to do it logically by looking at what I see as ‘all’ reasonable options and make a multiple choice sort of list. At times I have missed an option, and Sherry (or someone) points it out.
Most minor decisions I am also guilty of trying to work them out on my own without bothering God. (Contrary to mama and daddy’s advice) OUCH. My rationale, He has endowed me with common sense, and I should use that gift.
I think I have been guided thru life many times. Now to be sure God has never just came out and told me like he did Mr. Moses, “Go tell old Pharaoh to let my people go!” (I just heard that song in my head! LOL)
I look back over my life and I have NEVER faced some of the MAJOR obstacles MANY of you have. But I have watched humans in my 80+ years. We gauge problems by the list of past battles we have fought physically and mentally. And it seems that the present one is always the worst.
Forgive me I’m using this blog as a sounding board. I appreciate every comment, but please do not feel obligated to do so today. Just smile at my oncoming senility.
I may finish this later. If I figure what I am talking about. I have read over 25 western books in the last few weeks. I think I am saying, “Maybe it is time to see the Hostler and stable the horse. Then find a café or saloon, have a Sarsaparilla or one of ‘em new drinks called Koka-cola!” And just ‘Relapse’.
PS: None of my problems at present are life threatening nor is there financial doom on the horizon, but the older I get the bigger a small mountain gets. I knew things would be harder to lift and balance physically with age, BUT I did not believe things would be harder mentally, but they are.
