I love how life flows. Sitting here at my desk, looking out the window, and seeing a beautiful day in store. Texas has had a lot of rain, so the sunshine feels good. The house was perfectly still a moment ago, until Gus, our Blue Heeler, decided to jump up and start barking at something unseen by me. It can be still and become startling in an instant.
Coffee in hand and bread rising in the oven is the start of a great day. Taking a peep out the front door, I see Gus has lost his spot on the front porch. It is has been taken by Mama cat and her four kittens. They are learning to play together.
Typing these words is what I’m doing now. The house is still once again and so am I.
Being still and enjoying each moment is my sweet spot. I don’t have to have a plan because the day already has one. It was planned out before I woke up, but I get to walk through and enjoy what I see. Noticing the mini Grandfather clock sitting by the door has stopped swinging it’s pendulum, tells me it’s time for a new battery. Make a note.
My desk has a reasonable order to it this morning. My morning devotional sits beside my left arm with my reading glasses resting on top. It was read hours ago at the very start of my day.
To the right is my cell phone, coffee, notes, books and my vaping supplies. Yes, I quit smoking last year and now enjoy vaping. It’s still a habit but I believe it’s healthier and cleaner than cigarettes.
I am surrounded by several of my favorite things on my desk. It is much like my life in general. Surround myself with people and things who will love me, help motivate me, encourage me, inspire me, enhance me and bring happiness to my world. This is as far as I’ve gotten into today. There are things I want to accomplish, like setting up a schedule for my daughter to continue with her home school courses through the summer. That is work and not needed here.
If we stay in the present moment and enjoy the plan before us, it’s not a lot of work. I love the verse that says, “Be still and know that I am God.” Today’s devotional from Jesus Calling by Sara Young said, “Let Go, relax, be still and know that I am God.” I love what He is doing and I love the people He has placed in my life to share the journey.
