"You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You." ~ Isaiah 26:3 NKJV


Day 9 Quarantined musings:


One Sunday morning at a small southern church the new pastor called on one of the older deacons to lead in the opening prayer. The deacon stood up, bowed his head and said, "Lord, I hate buttermilk."

The pastor opened one eye and wondered where this was going. The deacon continued, "Lord, I hate lard." Now the pastor was totally perplexed.

The deacon continued, "Lord, I ain't too crazy about plain flour either. But after you mix 'em all together and bake 'em in a hot oven.... I just love the biscuits that come out!”

The deacon didn't stop there. "Lord," he said, “help us realize when things come up that we don't like, whenever we don't understand what You are doing, that we need to wait and see what You are making. After you get through mixing and baking, it'll probably be something even better than biscuits. Amen."


Have a great day knowing that God can make really good stuff out of what by itself might not be too appealing,

Pastor Rich
