A Completely Marvelous Day!

A birthday breakfast

Good Morning, God!

I don’t know when I have enjoyed a birthday more than I did yesterday!  It was just a completely marvelous day! Thank You!

A few years ago, God, I might not have thought to thank You for things like wonderful days. It feels GOOD to thank You! It feels RIGHT to thank You.

The act of saying Thank You seems somehow to make more room inside me for You to “hold on to.”

It makes me think of the children’s spinning top, the dreidel. I was playing with one a few years ago and thought “Wow! if this had six sides, instead of four, it would be a great visual representation of our week.”

Each side would be one of the working days. And the pole that comes up the top would be the Sabbath Day. The one that You use, God, to pick us (the top) up and give us a “spin.” I loved the image then, God, and I still love it!  Our week is designed to pivot and spin on the point or base of the Sabbath. And the pole is “set apart” so You can get a good grip on us.

All of this is very practical, God. Because I NEED for You to have a good grip on me. I’m almost through listening to Willful Blindness and I have become PAINFULLY AWARE of how HARD it is to make “good” choices when we are part of a group. Because it is so important to us to be a loyal group member.

So, please God, help me make MORE room for You in my heart and in my life.
