Have you ever just had one of those fabulous weekends? It's not that there is a big event, it's just the little things. The sun is shining in all it's glory.
I woke up feeling good. Now that I have caller ID I didn't answer any of those telemarketer phone calls! I spent thirty minutes chatting on Facebook with my granddaughter as we played Farmville. I know I've said this before in my other posts, she's 10 going on 25. She is so much like my daughter that it is unbelievable!

I had an interesting chat with another a fellow blogger from a blog I follow. Don't you just love to find out facts about people? It helps to understand where they're coming from. Their insights and comments help me to build a profile of who they are. The sharing of information, such as feelings toward parents, and why you want to do particular projects is so great.
Then my daughter called and we talked for a while. I got to listen to my grandson in the background. Have you ever heard of the term "free spirit" or "they travel a road all their own"? That's my 7 year old grandson.
Then this morning I was up early, made it to Sunday School on time. We had a very good discussion. We're studying Master Work. This morning began the series with Billy Graham, Peace with God. We spent more than a few moments on Solomon's conclusion in his Great Quest of Ecclesiastes 2:11. With all his wives, concubines, wealth and power none of these gave him fulfillment. He found them meaningless, a chasing after the wind, nothing was gained. In one of your loneliest moments, have you ever looked at your friends and acquaintances and thought "These people are chasing after something but don't really know what. They think rising in their fields is it or making more money or going out night clubbing, drinking, being loud, laughing loud." Then you come to the same conclusion as Solomon, "it's just chasing after the wind, nothing fills the hole in your soul".
Billy Graham's comments points to Jesus, God and the Bible. The Bible is a guidance manual. Its words are forever. It revives the soul, helps make a person wise, gives joy and is a lamp unto my feet.
Now I'm sitting here writing, listening to Colonel Mustard snore as he sleeps in one of the chairs. A peaceful ending to the weekend. Well almost, I still need to wash a few clothes. There's still about four more good hours to enjoy, so go enjoy!
