First thoughts

A surreal sense of peace-a soft cocoon security fills me this morning. It welcomed me as I went into the kitchen, ablaze with early morning’s first glow.

Contentment for the moment–ah, this is how one lives.

I breathed deeply into the day’s beginning and smiled–laughed even. The simple joys-the important necessities–are so real. Why should I focus on anything less?

I can see, I can hear, I can feel–the beauty and activity of a morning primed to worship the Creator, and I join the silent deafening force.

Life is now!

(Surely I have been here before, but for the past two years I had ceased living in the present.  After  fully living and loving internationals in a ministry in Europe for 10 years, it has been difficult to return and live the moments–maybe I am home?)

About oct17

The little girl in me loves bird watching, butterflies, sunrises, sunsets, walks in the rain; the adult I am enjoys the same. I sense God's awesomeness in all of life--what wonder there is in slicing a leek or cutting open a pomegranate. I have many favorite things--a formation of Canadian geese flying overhead, the giggles of my grand daughters, the first ripe watermelon in summer, snowflakes on my face--these gifts from my heavenly Father delight me continually.

    Sunday Blessings, Barb. Yes, now I begin to feel you HAVE returned home and accepted what home can be like. It was no less home when your were here. Home is where you are now on your journey.”The testing of your faith produces patience”. James 1:3.
