woke up this morning to the sound of wind whipping around rather fiercely, and the remembrance that yesterday i drank the last drop of coffee in the house. let's just say i was glad to be able to linger in my down-filled bed for a moment longer.
i am still thinking about last night, when i helped my friend anne and some of her other friends make bunches and bunches and bunches of these strange little candy balls for a school fundraiser. i have to be honest. i did not really want to go help, i would rather have spent the evening snuggled in a quilt with a book. the day had been long, and my body was feeling the toll.
naturally, i was blessed to not be able to do what i wanted to do. the conversation of the women last night was something i was hungry for, the open admission of God working in our lives, wanting to fulfill plans for us, if we are able to accept and trust that His way is really the only way. it was so what i needed to hear, even though i have heard before. so, the women shared stories of how God directed their lives, once they put things in His hands. good stories. stories built as only He can build them! seriously, you cannot begin to manufacture the way God works. EVER. and yet, we always see the goodness, the 'rightness' in His doings. oh, how i want to hold and remember that truth, always, every day.
and so, for another day, i am filled. filled with the knowledge that even though the world assaults and throws curveballs and seems so exhausting to try and figure out, God is there. He does not miss a thing. He knows me better than i know myself. and i can admit to him that i am tired. that i am not sure what i want anymore. that i am feeling vulnerable, and that i want Him to bring me to a place, His place. that i don't have to wait until tomorrow, or someday in the future, but i can be there today. right now. and that everything will be okay. IS okay. and so that is how my tuesday will roll...:) and that's a good thing.
By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain . . .
