Good morning! It’s been a while, but my heart is thinking of you all today. I’ve been quarantined due to exposure to Covid, but that is soon up and my test was negative, thank Heaven. Today it’s bright and sunny and we are expecting this to be the hottest day of the year so far in 2021- heat index will be 105-106 today. Yikes! Stay hydrated if you have to be out and about.
While home, I’m catching up (no surprise there!) on a bible devotional I am doing “100 Days of Prayer” by Shanna Noel. Day 37 hit home with me today. It’s about living in God’s presence and to me that’s a beautiful thing, a beautiful way to be- living aware that this troublesome world is not the end, that we have a far greater lot to look forward to. That whatever heartache we face will be redeemed and transformed for our good, all in His more than capable hands. That we have been created for such a time as this.
Shanna Noel writes “what a privilege to walk through this life with the assurance that His presence is always near-even closer than our next breath”. How could we not want to be aware that each moment is a gift? Each day is an amazing opportunity to do good wherever we can. Call a friend. Mend a broken relationship. Send a card to encourage someone (or text, or email!) Step outside and take a few breath. Be still and practice gratitude for a few moments.
Find joy in your journey today, my sweet friends. The world needs your gift.
Until next time,
