Is this just another ordinary day?
Some times I feel it is just another day, an ordinary day and it would be easy to sit back and let it happen. But every day is precious so .......
.... I make a list, well several lists
What to do today
Long term jobs
For my DH!!
And in two days I have managed to do several extra jobs, emptied and cleaned the fridge; cleaned the up high tiles in the bathroom; tidied and bagged all my patch work fabric in colour order, and put them in a very large under bed drawer; sorted and tidied a long narrow cupboard with 5 shelves, where we keep spare toiletries and medical supplies and our First Aid zippy bag for holidays and a First Aid kit for the car.
I have also made up a clean bed in our other double bedroom for us.. I thought we'd have a change. This bedroom faces east so we will have the morning sun to greet us; what more could we want?
So I feel good and give thanks for the energy to do these tasks, that the washing has dried and is fresh from the breeze, for my DH who made my lunch and is planning a dinner for us.
Although some of the flowers are going over early this summer, the heat and lack of rain being the cause of this.. it is still pretty and colourful.
We have a green house bursting with tomatoes, shiny and ripening, I look and think I did this from small seeds and I had a wonderful sense of living so I stopped and said a prayer. I didn't do God did..... Taking a breath for this pause worthy moment.. life is filled with them.. thanks be to God. Such precious moments that occur daily and in a breath are gone.
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men. that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5. 14-1
