What a visual

Today we are getting a new roof on our house. I know it sounds weird, but we have been on a waiting list since the end of September 2008. There was a storm that came through Ohio and had hurricane winds, which is unusual here. Well we had severe roof damage and between the roofing company and the insurance company they couldn't even start until the end of November. That put us on a very long waiting list and then the weather plays a huge factor. So yesterday they came and knocked all the snow and ice off our roof and today they are up there banging away, tearing the old off and putting the new on. This reminds me of my devotional this morning. I have been studying the life of David and am in 2 Samuel right now. Today it was talking about the character traits of David and are there any that I would I God to develop in my life? Well yes, there are two that jumped off the page at me; a greater heart for Worship and a greater depth of cooperation. I want to be a woman after Gods own heart and in doing this I want to worship Him always and do what He wants me to do anytime and anyplace. So, as my roof is being transformed from old to new, I too am transforming my heart. Out with the old and in with the new. Thank you Lord for this great visual for me today!

By the way, I was born in the hallway of my house. My mother did not have labor pains so when her water broke the ambulance was on the way. By the time they got there and checked her out they only made it to the hallway and then I came rushing out. In high school I played the clarinet, bass clarinet, tenor sax, trombone and baritone - 5 instruments. Now for the lie. I did not fail my 6th grade year but it was the hardest for me. We moved from one county's public school district to another county's public school district and I went from straight A's to failing in one month. It took me all year to catch up to their standards, but I finally made it to a C and passed the 6th grade. This was fun and thanks for playing with me!

I too want to be transformed. I never want to remain the same.
