I'm joining up with others over at Chatting At the Sky for Tuesdays Unwrapped today. Pop on over and check out what people are thinking.
Truly, I am. I'm just loving the new day thing. The way God takes every morning and makes it a new one. There's no leftover mornings from yesterday. I mean, sometimes we have to deal with stuff from yesterday, but each morning is in and of itself a new morning. What a beautiful thing.
Last week I was very un-bloggy feeling. I just didn't feel like I had much to share and I was a little bit grumpy off and on for no explicable reason. Instead of being revitalized by hanging out with friends on Friday I was bothered. Sunday service left me wanting to cry - like a real cry, too- but I couldn't have begun to tell you why. Husband and I spent the afternoon on the couch eating grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup while he watched tv and I read a book. That part, although very uninteresting sounding, was restful. And then I woke up to a new Monday morning.
Yesterday gave me a glimpse of what it would be like to not have to have a full time job. We had the day off as teachers, but Husband had to go to work. I had coffee with my mom and then later with a high school friend from the youth group whom I am doing a Bible study with. I cleaned, did laundry, and just felt better about myself. I didn't eat crap, and I went grocery shopping and actually had real food on the table for dinner (nevermind that the table is buried under all the stuff from the kitchen remodeling, so by table I mean bed). I actually did my Bible study. It was beautiful. (Disclaimer- regarding the initial statement about glimpsing the idea of not having a full time job outside the home- I liked it, I did- but I think after a while I'd go a little crazy, but that's good, since not working is not a financial option.)
Anyway, today is another beautiful new day. Because I was productive yesterday, I woke up to the coffee already brewing, a clean bedroom and bathroom, and only had to straighten my hair from last night's shower. Lunch was easy to make because I'd already planned it out as a result of going grocery shopping. And I had a nice chat with God in the car this morning on my morning drive to work.
I don't know why I was in such a funk last week, and particularly this weekend, but I'm rocking the new day feeling, and loving it.
