Busy day. No time to write much.
I will simply say that God can teach me two things at a time.
One thing I can seek after and struggle with in prayer.
And second, a bit more in understanding humility.
More than two things makes me flounder. I miss part of what God wants me learn. I need to repeat the lesson.
Happily, God knows my limitations and is patient to give me lessons at a pace I can internalize.
Lately life has been so busy and full that I have not been dutiful to keep asking for both types of lessons. With Spring gardening, sick kids, and a big to-do list it is easy to slip into learning hodge-podge from circumstances. That works a little, but is as inefficient as trying to learn geometry by doing home improvement projects.
So one goal during the days of counting the omer is to get back to whole-heartedly pursuing both types of lessons.
More details tomorrow.
