      So weird … the plane was snowed in. It’s beautiful here. Not sure where the plane WAS before it was supposed to come here, but apparently THEY still have winter there.

          Probably so. What a mess they’ve got.

          I’m must feeling kind of discombobulated, because I’d gotten my courage all worked up for a week alone (very stressful for me … I can’t even walk to the mailbox) and now he’s still here and we have to redo our schedule changes and repeat all the last minute grocery/laundry/dishes etc. stuff again in a week.

          • Sorry about the setback, Chrissy. Perhaps there’s a reason. I hope things work out over the next week. Thanks, BTW, for this post. It was a scriptural message I needed right now.

              Thanks. There are already some signs of blessings from the delay. E.g., we didn’t realize the bed was in such bad shape.

              Last occupant of that room moved out years ago, so it’s become a giant closet. Boxes, bed frame and mattress are all a total loss from the dampness that seeps up through the slab.

              Makes me NUTS nobody put plastic under the foundation. It would’ve saved us SO MUCH trouble, time and money if the moisture just STAYED in the ground. Harumph.

              Dearest is going to use the extra time for new bed replacement, mold abatement and Stored Crap Management.

    The New King James version of all of those scripture references can be found on one page here:

    • Hebrews 13:5
      Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

      1 Corinthians 12:12-31
      For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For in fact the body is not one member but many.

      If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be?

      But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

      Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.

      Jeremiah 29:11
      For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

      John 14:1-3
      “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

      1 Peter 5:7
      casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

      1 Thessalonians 5:17
      pray without ceasing,

      1 John 1:9
      If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
