Waiting for the Water to Boil

I am making boiling water for noodles, and decided that a watched pot never boils, so I thought I would make a quick post. We haven't heard from the docs yet about a date for Jack's procedure, f.y.i.
I received a copy of a book for my birthday from Rob's aunt Jan. It was Mother Theresa, In My Own Words. The quote on the back of the book is,
"If we were humble, nothing would change us - neither praise nor discouragement. If someone were to cricize us, we would not feel discouraged. If someone would praise us, we also would not feel proud." Mother Teresa.
Several years ago I worked through a bible study that talked about that very thing, pleasing God rather than pleasing the masses. The masses can be quite fickle, God is always the same. That study was a huge eye opener for me, a serious people pleaser. Now I hope that I am a God pleaser.
That is my quick post for today.
