1) There is a really neat song by an unknown artist that is taken from the book of Hosea, chapter 2 (I have used ESV).
haha, good point, huh? gives a lot.
2) Hosea chapt. 13:14
"I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. Where, O death, are your plagues? Where, O grave, is your destruction?"
and then right after this part, is the following, verse 15:
"I will have no compassion, even though he thrives among his brothers. And east wind from the Lord will come, blowing in from the desert; his spring will fail and his well dry up. His storehouse will be plundered of all its treasures."
Not so nice to read, huh? I agree.
I need to read the whole chapter--chapter 13. and I need to know and remember who is Ephraim. But I also need to take the dogs out. This will be a daily thing. Maybe today I can go to the bookstore or library and read and think...
3) I woke up this morning, with the opportunity to sleep-in, and I think I'll start school. I don't know if this was an intentional answer from God, but...I feel like I would have peace not going to camp in Arkansas, though it would be amazing, but to start massage school and develop the opportunities I have already. Maybe another time, I can travel South. Or West. :-)
