I like Fridays.
It’s the only day of the week I try to get up and take it slow.
On Fridays, I get up and don’t rush off to take a walk. I get a drink and sit in my chair. I read and reflect and talk to God.
Well, I try to.
I started this morning by trying to read the Bible. This was after I loaded the dishwasher and got that started. Today I was restless. It was a cool morning, and I wanted to get something in the oven before it heated up too much. I prep jars of the dry ingredients for various baked goods, but I didn’t have what I needed ready. So I read a little and then decided to get up and fix the baked oatmeal. That took about 20 minutes, and I made my husband’s coffee. I brewed my coffee too, and then finally sat down to read again.
I finished the chapter of the Bible, but I still couldn’t focus or settle.
I started journaling. I realized there were some things I needed to repent of, to ask forgiveness for. Then I just started writing to the Lord.
I showed up, and He showed up.
God, thanks for letting me taste and see that You are good today.
