Another day of looking for some lost cows/calves but after church today and I just drove through the lease on my way home (kind of cheating, not that I can see as much from the truck). It all looks empty to me anyway.
But church was good. I like the people there, salt of the earth, not perfect, just trying to do better, be better types. Our Sunday School teacher, Tammy, is an awesome girl and today we learned about some Isaiah stuff.
I have to admit I like Isaiah even if he is a little hard to understand sometimes. I think that’s because it’s hard to tell if he is talking about his time, the saviour’s time, or our time. They all kind of meld together in some of what he says.
I liked best the comment someone made about what he learned from his little boys. He said if one had a toy the other one wanted it and screamed and hollered when he couldn’t get it. He said it was hard to explain to a 1 year old that in the big scheme of things that the toy wasn’t all that important. Then he said maybe he was like that sometimes. Thinking something was a big deal and whining to God about it when really in the big scheme it really isn’t all that important.
I think I’m guilty of that too. In the end all the frustration I felt this fall wasn’t all that big a deal. After all, it gave me the opportunity to ride a horse more and how bad is that?
