It was a bit scattered. I was a bit scattered. I like to begin in stillness. The day, that is. If I see my notifications, it’s not good. If I check one, it’s a landslide.
Then I have to begin all over again. But that’s hard because by then my head is moving ahead of my heart and dragging it along. Not until my head lets my heart catch up and take the lead can I really be in a good place to sit down with Him.
But, I’ve said this before, He waits.
I was so glad to finally join Him. “Be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil,” He said. And then assured me that His peace and grace were with me. (Romans 16:19, 20).
I looked up from reading the Love Letter with Him and there was light streaming in through our old, old leaded glass window that faces the west and the rising sun. A reflection of a rainbow arched across the fireplace creating patterns of color on the walls and ceiling.
It was just too beautiful not to share.
And then just as quickly as it had arrived, it disappeared except for what kind of looked like a message needing to be delivered…
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble. May Your favor rest on us (as we write); establish the work of our hands for us—yes establish the work of our hands. (Psalm 90: 14,15,17)
May you be filled with joy this day (as you write).
