No Show...Make Time

A lady was supposed to come look at our sofa tonight...waited around all day for her, and she pulled a no show...

We are trying to sell our sofa for a couple of reasons. One, it is way too big on our new 2 bedroom townhouse. It takes up half of the small living room.

The chair and 1/2 that we have along with it is just way too overpowering!

When we had our larger home, it was great!! Now, it is just too big and bulky.

Secondly, with Jordan's possible surgery, we would like a futon to keep downstairs in our lil' townhouse. It will take up less space and should look just fine with our chair and 1/2.

We may have family come to visit during Jordan's surgery, and also Jordan even mentioned that she may like to sleep on the futon, rather than climb the stairs right after her surgery. We found a nice futon online that looks to be comfortable. We are going to check at some local furniture stores as well to see which ones are most comfortable.

Yet, we can't do anything until we sell the sofa. Right now we have it listed on a local online yard sale. We've had good luck with selling several items quickly on this site.

I'm just a little bummed that this lady stood us up without even calling to say she wasn't going to make it...(can ya see I'm a bothered?)

I got to thinking about this the Lord must feel when we go about our day, and we don't even communicate with Him. He watches over us lovingly, and waits to hear from us. How this must grieve Him that we go about our busy days without even stopping to say, "I love You Lord". He is my best friend, and I do this to Him so often. As a matter of fact, I was so concerned about this lady NOT coming, that I pretty much stayed distracted with this and did not have my quiet time with the Lord.

It made me think of this song...This isn't some great music video, but the words of this song always get to me...

I want to encourage me first, and you all as well, to make time to spend in God's word, and in prayer with the Lord. Make time for family and friends. All to soon time passes, and we won't get it back.

Ephesians 6:23-24 (New International Version)
23Peace to the brothers, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.

That was the first thing we covered in our recent Bible study (using Jerry Bridges' Respectable Sins) and he called it ungodliness. It didn't process in my brain until I heard it described like you just did--how can we ever even THINK about ignoring God after what He's done for us? Thanks for the reminder.
