Below was my bible verse this morning. It spoke to me. It gave me the sense that God is always with me. My day started with a sense of peace.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) – Hebrews 10:23
At the beginning of each week, I write down the things that I would like to accomplish by the end of the week. Then I list the things that need done each day. I do not include things like laundry and make dinner; but I will include things like exercise and take a shower. I include those because if I don’t see it written down for me to cross off, I will not exercise and I must take a shower immediately after. I mean, who wants to smell like sweat all day?
Of course today was another rainy day. “April showers bring May flowers.” But I was able to get some things completed outside in between drizzles. My children seem to have more outside toys than the man in the moon. And they were just thrown about on the porch. I believe we also have at least 3 balls for every sport. Seriously, why do we need 3 basketballs? We don’t coach at team in our driveway; not every person needs a ball. I cleaned up the toy bins and moved all the balls to a big metal barrel.
Now if only it would stay like this.
I also finished moving the bricks for the garden and tied my twine for the lattice.
Today was a hard day for me. Because of the rain, I did not want to do anything and in all honesty I did not feel much joy today. Sometimes our blessings for the day may be hidden from us.
It was by no means a horrible day, I actually accomplished a lot. My kids were good and kind to each other (doesn’t always happen). And no one was hurt. But I tend to find my days at home boring. Summer is coming soon and the kids will be home. That will liven things up a bit around here.
