Men Plan and God Laughs   2 comments

Jesus Laughing

Dreams from the LORD 2007-2010
19 April 2010

For the past few nights I have been staying at Kim and Pat’s place in Stites, Idaho. Kim and I have been cutting up a number of logs on his portable band saw. We have been cutting up white pine, yellow pine and red fir and making it into boards for himself and for some of his customers.

Today I noticed in the Sunday Lewiston Tribune (18 April) these headlines on the front page: “Ash may hover for days over Europe”; “Volcanic eruption in Iceland continues to snarl world plans.”

In today’s Lewiston Tribune: “European airlines are becoming impatient”; “Hundreds of millions of dollars being lost each day as volcano in Iceland continues to disrupt air traffic.”

The Lord really knows how to slow people down. God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts; our plans are not necessarily His plans.

Here is an old Yiddish proverb: “Men plan and God laughs.”

[I first saw the above Yiddish phrase on Digihitch.com. A guy named Redford had it on his posts.]

  1. There is one Jewish Quote I have framed………..Against stupidity; God Himself is helpless.

  2. JD: Very good quote.

    Here is a quote from Tim O’Brien’s Going After Cacciato: “You can’t get away with stupidity forever.”
