Who but You...

I curled up in my favorite chair just after five in the morning.  I had awakened by Joel’s cry and rushed upstairs to give him a drink of water and then instead of going back to bed for maybe another hour, I went ahead and stayed awake.  Fixed the coffee.  Pulled out the Bible and the devotionals that don’t see enough of my attention.  There.  I said it.

I settled in, got comfy, with the familiar story of Noah.  Big ark.  Lots of animals and everything that creepeth and crawleth.  Rain, rain, more rain.  Dove.  Rainbow.  New world (for a little while, until we messy humans made it a trainwreck, again.)  I have a toddler.  I am completely familiar with the two-by-two-ness and we even have a Mrs. Noah for our toy ark.  Got this one covered in the memory-bank, Lord.  Thanks.  Give me a bigger challenge.  I know it’s early, but my brain can handle it.  

I love when we are taken by surprise with what’s so familiar.

Me and probably everyone else knows it rained for forty days and forty nights.…
