Still Acclimating......

Happy January 4th.....

Acclimate.....this is a word that I really have never paid much attention to....UNTIL now!  We are still acclimating around here.

Acclimate is defined as:  To be comfortable with something new, such as a new temperature or a new situation....

To adapt, adjust, or conform........These are some great words to use...especially when hinting as to what is going on around here.


Instant gratification....from my observations, this is what the world is all about right now.

We really are the generation of text messaging with a need for an instant reply.  We are the generation of lunch-time face lifts, liposuction, and make-overs.

How about all those INSTANT things that we cram into our, instant foods or instant drinks.  Or....instant pills that guarantee to remove fats and detox all the bad toxins from our systems?

We are all looking for instant results in everything we do.  In the same way, we want instant results from GOD.  We are not happy when we don't get immediate answers...

What we must remember is that God's timing is always the PERFECT

In our wait....God is with us!  HE may be protecting us from something along the way, or it could be that we are not listening and HE has to get our attention in other ways that we might not understand..   The bottom line is that HE knows what is best for us and we need to learn to TRUST HIM!

Blessings to each of you!!

Hi Shug!

I'm so glad to be back at the computer! Acclimating - that is a good word. We all need to learn to do things according to God's timing and not our own - trust is certainly the key. The instant gratification thing is such a biggie, especially with kids - so many new gadgets that make things so instant. I think we could all learn a little more patience in life... :0)

God's timing---not OURS.... We live in a fast-paced world--and want instant gratification.. BUT--sometimes we need to slow down and WAIT for the right direction....
