As you probably know, after coming back from Japan in 2004 we have been taking care of my 90-year-old mother. We are thankful that she is in good health in her mind and body (eyes and ears are a different story).
Today is an important day for her because it will be her flu shot day. This is a big event for her. She asked JoAnn last night if she should wear her black shoes or slip-ons for the event!
It was a strong reminder to me of how we define and value various events in our lives. This month I was in L.A. and will be in Chicago and Minneapolis. Tomorrow I will be at the Seattle Mission Fest. These are all big events for Reaching Japanese for Christ, but frankly I probably won’t even think of what shoes I will wear.
Today, Lord, remind me that each event today, even the flu shot, can be significant Grace-Events in your eyes.
