His Thoughts are Not My Thoughts

To say I have a bit of spare time on my hands is an understatement.  I have a lot of time on my hands.  Much of this is spent playing with the girls and reading.  A lot of reading.  Mrs. Ellen has a library that has grown with each guest that has stayed here.  There is an abundance of sappy christian romance novels in the library.  I am currently reading my 20th book since staying at this house.  I think I have been here around six weeks so about 3 books a week.  I would never find time to read this much at home.
Lately I have been searching for a new book of the Bible to dive into.  I also needed a verse to explain just how I am feeling and to give me comfort when needed.  I was surprised when I found just that in one of the romance novels.
Isaiah 55:8-9
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord.  "As the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
I think that pretty much sums up my emotions of the current situation.  I have my thoughts.  Mainly right now they are of trying to be home by Christmas.  I would love  for all six Stewarts to be celebrating Christmas together in America.  But my thoughts are not His thoughts.  The way I would do is not His way.
His way far surpasses mine. 


  1. Can you read eBooks? What kind of tech/gadgets do you have (or have access to)?
    I'd like to see what I can do to hook you up with some good reads.

  2. I do not have an ereader. Someone is bringing me a Kindle on Dec. 15.
