Well, hello there.
Happy Monday to you.
The sun is shining.
It's a new week.
I, for one, am resting in His unfailing love this week.
"Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days."
Blurry and 6am ridiculous mirror shot of myself but picture me saying, "Top of the morning to you!"
Who could not be cheerful with the bit of fluffy sunshine in her life?
And this even fluffier and gangly bundle-of-joy?
Even if she does like to use your hand as a chew toy.
I've got a busy week. Completely self-imposed. There's a deadline looming over my head. May 1. That's when my little Etsy mercantile officially creaks open it's door. Something I've daydreamed about for years, truly. And, strangely, I'm so nervous!
I'm trusting He'll supply all the energy I need to get everything done. Ann's words, "Life is not an emergency," always come to mind when time is pressing on me.
So, I'm slowing down this morning and pressing into HIM with my thanks, my gratitude. Slowing to really SEE Him.

that 6am me? heading off to hug her neck and receive the precious gift that she is
days, hours and minutes...time He gives
soaking up these children
their soft skin and kisses
her curls and braid and
"Mommy, can I help make muffins?"
hugging my first baby and realizing his height
and the good mama ache of wanting them to stay small
painting together at the table
discovering learning links that work for us
reading aloud a love story
cool air, cloudless skies and sun to warm
food that's fuel and tongues that can taste
animals to share life with
a supper to remember You by
reminders from You that no, life is not an emergency
May you see Him in all you do this week, my friends.
