Some thinking . . .

It has been a good couple days since our painting spree - the drive yesterday was relaxing. Today I spent the morning digging perennials out of Mom's flower beds (she wants something with less maintenance) with my daughter-in-law, Rainy and the little guys. Then we all went to lunch and Weston and Walker came out for the afternoon. It has been a "flying low and slow" kind of couple days.

My mind has been overwhelmed with this scripture lately. It is tempering my actions in every way. I love it in any version of the Bible, but I will share that from the King James version as that is the one I grew up with. I need to share . . .

Matthew 25:33-40

33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
