Several of our International kids,
somehow found it necessary to share with me that they’ve been in their fields
or enjoying green grass & temperatures from +17 to + 19 for almost a month.
A few of them are in are in ‘the land down-under’ reveling in + 20 to +25 temps. Good Grief!!
The flowers are blooming. Blah! Blah! Blah!
Like I needed to know this while the snow outside was up to my waist & the temps were seriously frigid! LOL!!
News Flash!! Today we have hit +1!
Bikinis & sun hats are out of storage.
There are sun glasses aplenty & ski-bunny attire is being packed away.
Canadian summer has started.
Speaking of ski-bunny…
the only thing ski-ish about me is slipping into a stunning après-ski outfit in white or icy pink
& sipping a creamy hot peppermint cinnamon mochaccino in the ski lodge,
watching those other poor suckers fall on their bootie-licious bottoms.
There have been numerous stressful issues & situations in our world in this new year of 2019. So, I’ve been going to God to have Him order my life, emotions & days.
That reminds me of a little dude my Molly told me about who, when he heard his mother pray for God to order his grandma’s day, simply asked, “Mama. What website does God order days from?” Sooo cute! Wink! Wink!
With all the stress & pressure I’ve felt like my days were lacking order, joy & calm.
They were becoming knee-jerk reactions to events, rather than focusing on how God knew exactly what was going to come into each & every day.
Or focusing on the fact that He was going before us. That He was gonna get us to the other side.
I refuse to live in crisis mode all of the time so I began to ask ME some questions.
The first one was, “how do I want to start my days?”
I knew immediately it was with a prayer of gratitude.
A simple prayer.
The same one every morning.
“Thanx God, for giving me another beautiful day to love you!
Thanx so much for giving me another awesome day to be loved by you!”
