We’re all teetering on the totter of weird weather wondering what on earth to wear. There is no planning here, just giving up and letting the wind tell us when we open the front door. Because you can’t determine the temperature by looking out the window on a sunny day, you’ve got to walk outside and live in it. And sometimes you’re surprised by 80 degrees and turtles sunning themselves on a log in winter.

As you rest on Sabbath, may you surrender your expectations about God and your neighbor. Give up trying harder and allow the Lord’s will be done. He might surprise you with good news like snow falling in summer. The fulfillment of dreams you thought were fairy tales on the shelf.

Happy Sabbath Friends!
