Acknowledging His gifts to me in my everyday:
Morning light seeps through my bedroom doorway. Another day. New mercies. All is Grace.
Worship songs flooding my mind, filling my thoughts. Lingering in bed, enjoying the praise. Amazing God. Extravagant grace. Abundant joy.
Son stretches, skin peaking through getting-too-small jammies. Smiles wide. Waking earlier than normal. Growth. Thriving and the means to buy new jammies. Thank You, Father. I’m so blessed.
The fragrance of natural peanut butter spreading easily on warm, slightly crisp toast. Savoring long this favorite moment of mine. Simple delicacy and the means to enjoy it.
Praise Your Name.
Son squirming through breakfast. Energy revealing his excitement of a brand new day. Ah, to have joy like a child. Praying for wisdom and God’s guidance to get me through the day. To God be the glory.
Morning preschool at home. Workbooks. Glue. Scissors. Glitter. Patience thinning. Mess accumulating. I get to be here. Present. Participating in his new discoveries. What a gift. Thank You, Lord.
Son playing. To-do list prepared. Going to stay home today. Ready to plunge into cleaning. Cleaning the space of those I love. My injured knee is healing. I can do this. All because of You, Jesus.
Washing Machine buzzing. Oven timer chiming. Son calling my name in his melodious forte fashion. This is my Stay-at-home worship tune. Praise in the moment. Eucharisto.
Lunch served. Son giddy over mac-n-cheese. Sitting down next to him to enjoy my rice cake meal creation. Convincing myself it is the new comfort food. Folding hands. Bowing for thanks. Thankfulness. Delight. Substance. Provisions.
Afternoon sun beaming through windows, warming carpet under feet. Decide to go out and enjoy firsthand. To-do list will wait. Son grabs kite while giggling.
Birds singing songs of praise. Trees transforming brilliantly. Leaves fall while branches wave towards Him. Son delights in new discoveries. All from Jehovah. The gift of nature designed by a Masterful Artist. What a blessing.
Preparing supper. Injured knee starting to ache. Son showing he’s ready to end this day. Husband will be home soon. Silent prayer brings a song to mind:
♪♫ This is my story, this is my song. Praising my Savior all the day long. Perfect submission, perfect delight…..♪♫ Gift of song. Thank You, Lord. Just what I needed.
Submerged in dishwater, JJ Heller‘s music in background. Hubby and son playing on the floor in full laughter. Praise in the moment. All this comes from You. I’m so unworthy, but thank You, Father, for proving otherwise.
Bedtime battles. Praying for patience, God’s grace. Snuggles ensue. Love bursting through fluttering eyelids. Sleep embraced. Bending low to pray for this miracle of a boy. So much love. Giving all to God.
Unwinding. Finishing tasks. Conversations with my husband~ my best friend. Curling up with my Great-Grandma’s afghan handiwork to spend time in The Word. With Him. My Savior. Rejuvenate.
“…Did you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God. The creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. …those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:28-31NIV
All is grace. All from Him. To God may I bring glory.
I’m here, Lord. Thanks for showing me Your grace today. In so many ways.
I look forward to seeing what You have in store for tomorrow.
My daily delights.
How about you? How do you discover joy in your daily routine? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
