We have a little grocery store here called Aldi. The chain originated in Germany...which is where my daughter first discovered it when she was on a study-abroad trip a few summers ago. Anyway, it is small and you bag your own groceries to help keep cost down. Well, I love going there! They have great fruits and vegs. Their meat is high quality and their brand of staple items is good, too. And they carry non-food items as well. There are things they have all the time and then there are things that are different every week. So, you never know what you might see there. Today, they had luggage, a play kitchen. and Christmas M&M's! So, besides saving money when you shop there...you get to have an adventure! :-)
Have you noticed that there are some people who are a lot like Aldi? When you encounter them, you never know what you will find. Sometimes they are friendly and interact with (what appears to be) genuine interest in you. And then the next time you meet, they act as if they never met you and you receive the cold shoulder treatment. The difference between them and Aldi is that the adventure is not so pleasant...it's downright confusing! Either you are my friend or you're not...either way I am Okay. Just make up your mind!!
Aren't we glad that God never changes...He is the same yesterday, today and forever! We always know what to expect because He always acts in ways that are consistent with His character. Now, that's not to say that He doesn't surprise us sometimes. Oh, I think He enjoys doing that! He delights in giving us more than we ask and in answering our prayers in unusual ways. So, life with Him is, indeed, an adventure. The very best kind!
