2 Corinthians 1:18-22The Christian life rests on a foundation of God'spromises for today and for the future. We can trusteverything that our heavenly Father has said becauseHis Word shows Him to be...Truthful. The Lord knows what is true and speaks honestly in all matters. We can be assured of thisbecause He is holy; there is no sin in Him. He is also omniscient and understands everything (Heb. 4:12-13). His promises are based on His infinite knowledge and truthfulness.Faithful. Scripture compares the Lord to a shepherd who "gathers the lambs in his arms and carriesthem close to his heart" (Isa. 40:11 niv). What He has planned for us, He will bring to fruition (Rom. 8:28).Our heavenly Father does not waver in His intentions or will.Loving. God's love for us was demonstrated at the cross. He sent His Son Jesus to die by crucifixionand thereby take the punishment for our sins. The Savior experienced God's wrath against iniquity sowe might know only His love. This is the ultimate proof of His devotion to us.All-powerful. Divine power created the world and raised the Savior back to life, so we know God hasthe ability to carry out all His plans. Our omnipotent Father can keep every one of His promises.A promise is valuable only if the one making it has trustworthy character and the ability to carrythrough. Our heavenly Father is truthful, faithful, loving, and all-powerful. We can base our entire lifeon His promises, secure in the knowledge that He will do just as He has said.

Whatever would we find to do if we didn’t have to constantly dealwith changes -- or fix stuff and tidythings up? We might be forced towatch TV all the time or read tonsof books. If you’re a sportsman, youmight have to hunt or fish all thetime. What a bleak outlook. Itdoesn’t bear thinking about.This all occurred to me theother day as I was driving aroundthe ranch. I first went to the riverplace to consult with Ted about hishealth insurance. The companyhas discontinued his type of policy-- probably because it was too gen-erous so they weren’t makingenough money on it. Anyway, if you haven’t dealt with health in-surance lately, you’re lucky. It’s apain as is all insurance. There arecountless companies and tons of options to consider. First you haveto decide how much coverage youwant followed by consideration of cost, deductible, co-insurance(whatever that is,) and a few dozenother things. It takes quite a bit of reading and thinking to come upwith a policy that might acciden-tally be the right one for you. Thetotal time spent is considerable.Without dealing with changes ininsurance, Ted and I could havewatched more TV.On the way back out of the riverranch, there was Jim on the roadfixing a gate. That bit of wirestretched between two posts hadbeen closed when I went throughthe car gate next to it earlier, but Iguess Jim didn’t think it wouldstay that way very long withoutsome upgrading. Anyway, he hada spool of barbed wire and theother tools and supplies needed toeffect repairs. He was making goodprogress, as far as I could tell,until one of his leather gloves gotmisplaced. Barbed wire and barehands don’t go together very well.The glove was eventually run toearth and work resumed. Withoutgate disintegration, Jim mighthave had time to take a nap oreven go fishing, and fishing was apossibility. The river and stockdams were not frozen over thatday which is a little odd for thefirst week of December, but thereyou are. Sometimes there’s ice afoot thick already by Thanksgiv-ing, never mind Christmas.When I got back to the homeranch, semi-resident-carpenterChad had most of the north wall of the car garage torn off. It was, ac-cording to him, a load-bearing wallthat was no longer bearing muchof anything. The two-by-fours hadrotted off at the bottom, and therewas some danger of collapse. Thiswas by no means the oldest build-ing on the place, but somehow itwas the one falling apart. I’m notsure what caused the wood to gobad, but it was probably a combi-nation of poor siding and maybethe vermiculate Dad had used tofill the bottom half of the wall. Theinsulating material might havecollected moisture let in by the badsiding and promoted rot. Whoknows the whys and wherefores,but there was a definite problemthat needed to be addressed. With-out having to deal with collapsingbuildings, Chad could have gonedown to the river place and shot afew more prairie dogs. That issomething he enjoys quite a bit. Hedid eventually call it a day, grabhis gun and go, but it was fairlylate in the day by then. He claimedhe needed a change from carpenterto varmint-control officer.A bit later I was scratchingaround in the basement looking forsome stuff when I noticed a pile of cardboard boxes needing disposal.The floor needed to be swept aswell. I didn’t have time right thento do much cleaning, but the workis still there needing to be doneand promising to take up some of my leisure time in the near future.If you look around anywhere youhappen to be, there usually issomething or other that needscleaning or straightening. The topof my desk is a case in point.On the other hand, maybe weneed change and all the otherthings that take time. Any usefuland necessary work tends to makeus think we are accomplishingsomething and are therefore usefuland indispensable people. It helpsthe ego a bit. Well, in any case,there is no shortage of work outthere that we can do to build oursense of self-worth. Aren’t you justtickled to death about that? Isurely am.

Kenny and Roxie Fox drove toWall on Saturday to do some teamroping at the indoor arena. Roxiehas done a lot of barrel racing inher lifetime, but roping is some-what new. As a result, she andKenny roped in the novice divisionso she could get the feel of it.Kenny said her horse was alsosomewhat of a novice, but they didokay and caught their first calf without much trouble. Kenny alsoparticipated in the “Draw Pot” and“Rifle” divisions. In the rifle part,you can win a rifle. In the other,you put your name in a pot, andyour team-roping partner’s name isdrawn out of the pot for you. Whenyou haven’t roped with someone be-fore, it adds a little interest to theproceedings. Kenny did okay onthat and came in first on one go-round and third on another.Eve and Abby Fortune drove toRapid City on Saturday to take inthe musical play, Beauty and theBeast.
