We've got lots going on around here this week, and on top of it all, two sick little girls. :(
They both seemed a bit better today, so I think they're on the mend. With all of the busy-ness going on here, I thought this would be a good day for a meme that I found over at Dawn's. Feel free to consider yourself tagged and join in! (Let me know if you do, so I can stop over to read it.)
Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next three sentences.
Tag five people.
My Bible is the closest book at hand. I keep it here on the planning desk in the kitchen so it will be handy for our morning Scripture memory during breakfast. O.K., page 123 takes me to the book of Numbers, chapter nine.
The Tabernacle was set up, and on that day the cloud covered it. Then from evening until morning the cloud over the Tabernacle appeared to be a pillar of fire. This was the regular pattern-at night the cloud changed to the appearance of fire.
(There are the three sentences, but I also have to share what follows.)
When the cloud lifted from over the sacred tent, the people of Israel followed it. And wherever the cloud settled, the people of Israel camped. In this way, they traveled at the Lord's command and stopped wherever he told them to. Then they remained where they were as long as the cloud stayed over the Tabernacle.
Isn't it comforting to know that we can trust the Lord's timing? He knows when we should stop and when we should go because He can see the road ahead of us.
Blessings to you tonight!
