Where am I looking?
He wanted to know if I would fix my eyes upon Him or upon my troubles.
"Upon You, of course" was my quick reply. I'm not sure if I heard Him laugh.
The day grew light, snow continued to fall, exceeding the forcasts, and though beautiful, it spoke of potential dangers.
I have found joy in finding myself beginning to form an fitness habit again since we now have a recumbent exercise cycle in the basement that we purchased for an excellent price. It was reduced due to the fact that the person who first tried to assemble it stripped the threads on the pedal crank. It was returned to the store in Winnipeg where it was purchased, fixed by welding the pedal on permanently, and sold to another resaler in a town nearby. This is where we found it. If the only problem was a pedal that was welded so it couldn't be removed, well, that wasn't a problem at all!
Silly to think that anything is permanent...
Yesterday the pedal began to wiggle. Today it has broken off. Problem.
I decided to try some strength training floorwork instead. Ouch! The floor is too hard, my body too stiff, the lump on my backside too sore. Problem.
I'd like to make plans to travel South to spend time with Mom but still await the scheduling of medical tests of my own. Problem. Problem. Problem.
And now I truly do believe I hear His charming snicker and I remember His pre-dawn question, and I'm fixing my eyes, fixing my heart, casting it all upon Him.
