Today started as many mornings do lately: My husband wakes me up, I vacuum in 2 or 3 cups of coffee, then we’re off to the gym. My foot is almost better, but still hurts, so I sit my butt in the hot tub and tell myself it’s ok to relax once in a while.
I’ve started most of my days this way lately. I’m finally being kind to myself….in short spurts. 😉
Currently on Sundays, I’m taking a course at church. We are using the book Invisible Neighbors, (do we still underline book names and use quotes for other stuff??) and talking about how we as a society don’t really notice the people around us. We watched a video of someone getting hit by a car, and watched how long it took before someone came over to help him. Scary.
The above scripture popped up a lot last week. It talks about learning about the Word of course, but I also noticed: open my eyes to see what’s going on around me.
The week before, I had concentrated on Psalm 34, you know, the one that starts out “I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
Then of course, Tuesday is the Grief Share group at the church. On the way out of the building, I grabbed a copy of “Our Daily Bread”, you know, the little booklet. I opened it up and guess what it fell open to? Yep, Psalm 119:18.Then I turned back a page and there it was: Psalm 34:1. I always like these little God-incidences, especially when I’m not really sure if I’m doing what I should be doing. It reminds me that God is still in control, and still watching me, and still guiding me through the days.
