Once again I am alone in bed on a Sunday morning with my coffee, a muted television and an open window listening to the birds. Peace. This, in my opinion is a great way to begin a day. Writing thoughts and feeling the crisp air and hearing the sounds of the world waking up. I now want to be out running as a part of the outside which I will do in a little while when the day is more fully awake.
Today I thank God for the good things in my life. I don’t always …ok not often enough, go to church. I believe that I can speak to the Lord at home and he hears me. I am not a tither. I do give but not a portion of my income like some. I give what I have when I go and when I can. I don’t think God is angry about that…I don’t think he gets angry unless you are smiting him. I did that and the outcome is something I have been recovering from ever since. I am not a perfect person and I definitely need work. I remind myself that the simple things in life are what I should thank him for and do so more often. Sometimes I forget to do that but that is one of the things that makes me imperfect. I hope that barring a few things I will be welcomed into heaven when the time comes but that is a long way away and much time to try and be a better person. I must learn from my mistakes that never seem to end, forgive when it is nearly impossible, be a good mother, wife and friend and strive for goodness in my soul. I’m a work in progress, what can I say.
Today I am meeting with someone to talk about her health and starting an exercise routine. I am hardly an expert but to her I am more of an expert than others she knows. She reminds me of myself in a lot of ways. I am not sure what the outcome of today’s meeting will be but hopefully it ends with a plan, big or small, topped off with a whole bunch of determination on her part. I don’t mind offering some of my time but as I have experienced in the past, you have to work with the willing and motivated to make things happen without dragging them around on your back. So today I feel good because I may just help someone to help herself and that is a great feeling any day.
I hope everyone has a day that brings smiles to their face, happiness in their heart, faith in God that he has a plan for you and joy to the day
