As this week unfolds, ponder . . . "SURPRISES!"
We don’t care much for surprises. We’re great for planning, for trying to work it all out in advance.
We will marry on this date, have this many children, make this much money per year, live in this kind of house, take a vacation each summer for this many days, retire at this age– and no surprises please. Just in case there are some surprises, we have insurance policies to run interference for us. Remember surprises are holy. The way we tend to live, a surprise is about the only place God can find some elbow room, some space to shake up our lives so we’ll realize how deep is God’s love.
