I LOVE Tuesdays!
Because I don't have to work! =)
It's the one day I'm off during the week. And I can't tell you how much I miss getting up early and being able to sit down in my pj's and blog my thoughts out each morning!
I'm telling you....it doesn't take much to make me happy! Blogging, good coffee and some warm pj's....it's all a perfect recipe for terrific day! (Until the Kennyboo graces me with her presence, which I hear her getting out of bed now ugh......be right back)
Ok, diva in pull-up's now has her movie; Stuart Little 2, her perfectly chilled water bottle, princess bowl with cheerios (no milk) and her cozy heated blanket. All according her "wake-up" routine.
Every. Single. Day.
She's not high maintenance or anything.
Anyway, back to my thoughts.....
So, thank you all for your comments, e-mails and phone calls about my blog entry about the girl's school. This is the hardest decision we've ever had to make. And seriously.....I've never gotten so many different views!!! Which, I very much appreciate since we need to look at all angles.
I appreciate your honesty and willingness to share your stories (good and bad) with me.
This decision has to be made by February since this is when the girl's school enrolls. But mentally, I would like this decision to be made now. I don't like to teeter back and forth with my emotions and this is a very emotional decision.
I read something this morning that touched my heart so deeply. I don't know that it's "The" answer but it's so very true. And I thought I would share it with you.
It's from a book called Come Away My Beloved. A dear friend gave it to me almost a year ago now and every single time I open it up God speaks to me!
The title was "Walk on with me".
"Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, For I delight in it." -Psalm 119:35
I don't normally like to write out books words on this blog but this spoke so deeply to me, I have to share it.
"Be obedient: You will bring joy to My heart.
Neither the applause nor the scorn of others should be of any consequence to you.
My approval is reward enough, and without this, any other satisfaction is not worthy of your pursuit.
Walk on with me.
I will be very near to give you support and encouragement, so you have nothing to warrant your fears.
They will vanish as you obey."
Don't you just love that?
Our fears will VANISH as we obey.
I know in everyone's lives today we are all facing things that we fear. If you aren't......well glory, but I know all to many people who are fearful during these times we are living in.
To me obedience is a daily, hour by hour thing. I mean, yes......we make "big" obedience steps but I think the little ones each day are what makes the Lord smile the most.
Choosing to trust, instead of fear.
Choosing to walk, instead of standing still.
Choosing to praise, instead of cry.
Choosing to love, instead of hate.
Choosing to gain, instead of loosing.
Choosing to let go, instead of holding on.
Choosing to pray, instead of talking.
So as I go on with this Terrific Tuesday, I can hold onto to so much.....or I can hold on to the promises spoken from my God. And I will walk on with my God as my fears "vanish". But...obedience is a choice. Day by Day....step by step.
Oh I have so many more thoughts on this but.......
The Kennyboo is officially "awake" now, meaning bored with her movie, cereal gone and warm. So I guess I'd better get going!
Have a terrifically, blessed day!
