It is summer…it’s July almost halfway gone and things are strange. We have had so much rain here where I live, hardly any sun so far. And being in the house most of the time has been like a cheese grater traveling up my spine. Dialysis and doctors, doctors and dialysis; this has been the life this summer for someone who loves activity and getting out amongst people. I almost feel like I am hiding my light under a bushel and that is not my calling in life. But maybe it is. Perhaps I have thought I could handle things myself and I know better to think that. My faith is that I trust only in God to guide my path. So I am thinking today very seriously that this is a period of time in my life that I must get back into my relationship with Him again. Although I still spend my special quiet time with Him, I haven’t been able to get outside and enjoy His presence in the flowers and the songs of the birds, the flittering squirrels playing in the yard and the giant trees of the neighborhood. I can still get out on the porch and enjoy Him as before. And I will. In fact I feel moved to do that right now before the day is ending. Have a wonderful evening to you and yours and be blessed beyond your dreams today. Every day is a gift. Open it all through each day you are given and enjoy it to the fullest. One day at a time…that’s the way to live…and enjoy every second of it. To the porch I go, to meditate on creation.
