It's good to just be at home right now. Feeling the cool of the old hard wood under my feet and hearing the quiet creak of the boards as I walk through the house. Yesterday was Monday and not a good Monday- mind you. Not a horrible one really but long and hard. Tuesday still feels like Monday.
Monday needs to take a leap off a cliff.
Today in the midst of concern on so many fronts and what is beginning to feel like spiritual attack, I stop and think and am thankful. Home is good. Lighting a candle, listening to uplifting soft music, prayer, God speaking from His Word and in my heart and lots of thankfulness. I want to be one of the thankful people. I want to be thankful no matter what because there is always something to praise Him for. This has been a good recipe for peace. On a more cheerful note...we have sweet company coming today.
I have been in one of my favorite places for a few hours. My own kitchen cooking for company. Pumpkin cake, banana muffins, Jan's granola, southwest stew and cornbread. There will be a feast tonight yes and good fellowship.
Be thankful. Count your blessings. Ask for His peace.
And get excited because one day and -
He helps us endure and find peace and joy in the midst of tough times.
