    My question is, why did Sarah laugh? At her age that prediction should have scared her to death? … always wondered at her reaction…. She sounds like a game, brave lady – Abraham was blessed…
    After that rabbit trail, if we really think on it, the fact that God knows our thoughts should be one of our blessings when combined with the other things He has revealed to us….
    A good Friday ponder – thank you

    Thanks, Em…

    John 20:29…maybe, just maybe, (blush) she laughed at the idea of having ‘pleasure” (sex!) at her old age. hahahahahhaa TMI, I guess.

    Good word, as always Michael…and yes, indeed…. God knows our thoughts and hearts,, and all those things I/we don’t actually say outloud (eeks)…. Love your perspective that He desires to bless us…. I’m so used to thinking He is ready to strike or look with disgust…

    Blessings to you.

    Thank you…and much love to you.
    God didn’t strike down Sarah…He brought a miracle,
    We’ve heard too much bad preaching… 🙂

    Much better ponder here than open blog’s pumping gas thread… She says with a modicum of guilt

    Paige, you might be right… ?

    I heard a REALLY great message on Wednesday night from Robbie Winkler from Crossroads… One of the things he said was “I believe God is good natured”. Love that. Has stuck in my head for days, alone with numerous other things he said from Joshua ch 6.

    John 20:29… the more I think about my answer, the more I like it. Ha! We churchified frozen chosen might need to loosen up a bit. hahahahahahaha Not take stuff so danged seriously… I suspect there was more than one Miracle involved in the birth of Issac. 🙂

    Also, Michael, please pray for me. I have –ahem– decided to host/teach/lead a women’s home Bible study group. … After 19 years since being tarred, feathered and immolated. ..and by the Grace of God, lived to tell about His Goodness… I am hoping I am not completely off my rocker and asking to be struck with lightning.

  8. Michael says:


    You’re in my prayers and I think it’s a grand idea…

  9. Jean says:


    Sounds like a great opportunity!

    I don’t think lightening, but with the Father’s grace, perhaps thunder. For some reason, your #7 got me pondering Psalm 29. 🙂

  10. Paige says:

    Good contemplation Jean, #9. I am planning to read a Psalms with the group of women each week….
    Glory to God who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly beyond all we could ask or imagine.
    (as long as I’m not stepping on His toes as we ‘dance’)
