What is going on in that dryer?!
Do you think God was thinking about missing socks when he inspired the words of Deuteronomy 11: 18 " Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads."?
There's a principle in there connecting that verse and my safety pinned socks.
What? You're asking aren't you? What could that possibly be?
I took some extra effort to keep my socks together, so that one would not disappear when they're tossed into a churning washer and the spinning dryer.
Oh, I have days that feel like that don't you?
I may find a word from the Lord in the morning but by the time I'm in the midst of life by 10 am that word has vanished from my mind - Swept away by all the commotion.
Perhaps in order to fix God's word on my mind and heart I first need to do something akin to binding it onto my hands and forehead. While an ancient Jew may have chosen a phylactery, I think I'll use a post-it note; on my fridge, or the car dashboard, or on my to-do list.
Who knows? I may end up with socks in pairs and a word from God I'll be able to keep in mind throughout the day and both would be a very good thing!
