Good Morning, God!
I had a lovely day, yesterday. I did a pretty good job of resting — went to church with Kit, made stew for our dinner, took a nap, visited with my Mom, and rested before dinner.
And somewhere in the middle of the day I realized that Your Gifts are no less real for going Unnamed and Unnoticed.
It came to me that sometimes Your Love is like a trickle charge — sort of like the way I water my ferns. I put a few ice cubes in the pot and let the ice slowly melt and gently provide water at an easily absorbable rate. THAT was how I felt yesterday — gently watered with love.
Looking back, it was SURPRISINGLY EASY to disregard all the work lined up and waiting for me. It will get done. True, there is more than I had realized. But, somehow my priorities SHIFTED and I was able to stay in the Day, RESTING without anxieties or worries. Thank You!
Ah, now I am back in the “Six Days shall you Work” world. It’s a world I love and am comfortable in, God. But, there is a Part of Me that now knows — even when working — not to go too fast — not to disconnect myself from You and from those around me. And, once again I will need Your Help!
Please, God, help me to continue this RESTING IN YOU — even while I am in the World. Let me carry the connections of the Sabbath Day into the other six. Ah! Now THAT is a GIFT!
