Devotional - Wednesday, May 17, 2017 137/228

Today's Scripture: "You shall hang it upon the four pillars of acacia wood overlaid with gold. Their hooks shall be gold, upon four sockets of silver." Ex 26:32

See it.

Where do you want this?

Live it.

My schedule gives me time to do a little yard/garden work, but my wife is the one who wishes she could. That may change, but for now we communicate on how best to layout the yard-scape. If I am able, I plant what she bought and place it where she wants. I do the heavy work, but I've never been more busy than I am now working some important projects. So my primary job is to make sure those plants still in temporary containers get watered. Everything has a place but people don't always agree on where that is.

Last night I was shown a cleared area beside the house and asked who did it. My wife obviously knew I did, but she was shocked that I would cut down a hydrangeas plant at the base of a crepe myrtle tree. I apologized, but it looked life a weed to me. So my goal now is to set markers where she says something is to be salvaged and not cut it down. Oh yeah, don't cut something down unless I know what it is. I'll try not to be the Grim Reaper again because encouragement is found in the words of Ian Malcom of Jurassic Park, "Life uh . . . finds a way."

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for pruning me when my weeds of sin looked harmless.
