A Different Kind of Day

Today I awakened with no plans. I shrugged my shoulders and decided not to try to come up with a plan. I decided to do a lot of nothing in particular.

My nothing in particular started out with me cleaning my aquarium. My three little fishes are so happy.

While cleaning the tank I kept smelling fresh brewed coffee. How could that be because I was the only one in the house. I guess it was just my imagination running away with me. I brewed a couple cups and came up with a thought which someone before me probably came up with it first. I topped my coffee off with whipped cream that floated like a fluffy cloud. Wow it tasted great.

While fixing my coffee and pomegranates another bright idea came to mind-finger painting. Yes! Sounds like a winner. Something I don’t have to give much thought to. I can even close my eyes while swirling the paint across the paper and when finished open them and there lies before me a beautiful surprise (or mess). I choose to believe for a beautiful surprise.

In these times of uncertainty and craziness we need to cast our cares upon the Lord and do something out of the ordinary. Put on some music and do your best to loosen up and welcome freedom. Then create what isn’t in your thoughts. Be free as the birds in the sky without a care. God cares more for you than the carefree flying birds. Trust Him to do all He said He would do for you in His love letter to you-His Word.

If you don’t have a relationship with Him you can ask Him into your heart right now. He’s ready and willing for you to join His family now. There’s plenty room for more. Blessings.

It’s Fall Y’all

Today Standing in front of the mirror I took a good look at the person looking at me. I began looking at myself with new eyes and discernment. Before I could hardly look at myself because for years I didn’t like who I saw.

Today was different and difficult at the same time. Difficult stepped up and made me look at what I resisted for a lifetime. When I finally got the nerve to look myself in the eye I saw an amazingly beautiful person that I immediately fell in love with. The overwhelming love brought me to tears. I confessed my love for the person I was looking at-me.

I received a piece of mail that said, “Prepare Your Home For Seasonal Changes.” I thought I would look at myself and what I could do to prepare myself for the winter season. I would amp up my supplements to help ward off any viruses that would try to overtake me. Next I would pull my winter wardrobe from the back of my closet to make repairs and replacements as needed.

Since it’s beginning to be soup season I will collect new recipes I’ve never had before and try them. Um, just the thought of a bowl of delicious soup with crusty bread, apple crisp and warm apple cider as a chaser sounds great.

A nice sidebar is an early evening walk as the crisp fall weather kisses my cheeks while I enjoy the changing foliage.

How do you feel about the person you see in the mirror every day?
