What a wonderful rainy day! It has been another flooding 24 hours for most of the area and the front lawns, fields and basements are as waterlogged as they can get. But I enjoyed the rainy afternoon immensely sitting on my parent’s couch looking out their picture window while…
AHAHA sorry, Ben just had me laughing until I cried…ahhhh abs are hurting.
Ok, back to my afternoon! …while reading the third and final book of “A Suitable Boy”. The rain was pounding on the window and slowly sliding down glass. The grass and trees were as lush as ever with their multiple greens shining through the rain drops. I was relaxed, at peace and content with the very place Ben and I are in our lives. We have our future, our dreams, our families, our love and most importantly our Lord.
We have one life to live. One life to fully reach the desires the Lord has placed in our hearts. One life to rejoice in every day and work towards the goals we feel the Lord is calling us to reach for. I am so excited to love each day and search out what the Lord has for me. He wants to see us joyous in our daily walk in obedience to Him. Taking time to read a book, looking out a picture window and recognizing the joy in your heart is what life is about. Life abundant is promised to us but we have to take time to partake in that life.
Don’t be too busy working, striving, yearning and being anxious about tomorrow when today has been promised in abundance.
