I said I wouldn’t. Which you should never do. I know better. When we adopted Sam there was a form that asked about what we would not do. I could do anything, I was only afraid of seizures. No seizures. So I checked no seizures. Sam had his first febrile seizure right after his first birthday. When they say “never say never,” they mean it. Sure, you can say, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength” and I believe that… except in the case of sewing. I cannot sew, I won’t say “I won’t sew”, because then, well, you know. The Lord and I have talked about sewing and about how I can do all things through Him. The Lord doesn’t want me to sew. I handled Sam’s seizure like a pro. It was awful and terrifying, but he needed me and I can always do what Sam needs me to do. So, I said I wouldn’t blog, therefore, here is my blog. I will have short pieces, and my silly posts here from now on because… I said I wouldn’t. I got off of Facebook (I am not really back until Sunday) for Lent and as a time of focus prior to my trip to California. I attended a conference near San Jose and I am forever different; the first evidence of this, of course, this blog. So follow me if you want. If you don’t want to… don’t say you won’t. Its the oldest lesson in the book; never say never.
Instead we ought to say, “If it is The Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:15 (NIV)
