While children were still asleep,
While the air felt the freshest,
While I could still hear the birds,
And while the grass was still wet with dew,
I thanked God for life and health.
I spoke to, and rebuked the ugly thoughts that tried to sabotage my mind,
And I asked God to take charge of my thinking
As I continued to walk.
I tried to quiet my mind as I walked.
Funny how even being surrounded by stillness, I have to put forth effort to keep my mind still.
I thought about my family as I walked.
Dreamed about road trips we’d take across country as I walked.
Oh how enjoyed the quiet time with God this morning as
And as I walked, I thought about yesterday.
I watched in awe as my Zayda performed a monologue that she wrote.
I observed in admiration yet another piece of my Zoey’s artwork.
I laughed in shock at the wit of my Zailey.
Each time, I wanted to post and share with the world…but God said, “No.”
As God said, “Their gifts are to glorify ME, not you. Don’t take away from the moment by rushing to display them to the world. In due time, I will put them on display for MY glory, and not yours.”
And my mommy tank was filled even more than usual.
As I walked,
I was inspired to write this.
So, I did without delay.
Thank you, God, for today.
