Status Report…

Way before Facebook Status Reports…bloggers wrote them so here goes:

Sitting…at the dining room table with an empty coffee mug…sigh…

Drinking…time to move on to water…and the stillness of the house after the weekend…

Moving…in super slow motion…not sure why…just not a lot of umph!  I think I did too many chores on my day of rest…it makes today easier but I missed my Sabbath rest…

Realizing…I am procrastinating instead of cleaning bathrooms…oh the joy!

Contemplating…finishing a book as a reward for cleaning the bathrooms…sounds like a plan.

Feeling…peaceful and content.  I also feel loved…just opened the mail and received a card from one who sees me…that is a gift.

Wondering…how is it March 1st?  Will I finish my physical therapy continuing education hours before this month slips away?  Pray for me…

Wanting…the beautiful yard but none of the work I see ahead of me to achieve that reality.

Loving…church…small group opportunities…being in the Word…God showing me when I am not being present with Him and others (because I asked Him)…soaking and savoring times with the Lord…seeing the body of Christ walk in their gifts…so beautiful…

Learning…I cannot do everything nor can I control much of anything.  The Lord is showing me that I can loosen my grip and when I do…I catch glimpses of how God dispatches His people to do what I can’t do and am not called to do.  He is teaching me that a surrendered life begins with a surrender mind and open hands.

Thinking…about Lent…I want to turn my heart and mind towards the Cross…more intentionally.  I am going to use this to help. 

Listing…things that make me glad this morning:

  • My oldest daughter taking a card  from this  and exclaiming…this is so cool…daily Bread…thank You Lord for loosening my hands and letting You move.
  • Friends
  • Good books
  • walking on this path with Carl
  • never being out of bed before Caleb…otherwise I would miss the first cuddle of the day
  • having a blog
  • the first white camellias (that look like gardenias) peeking through my living room windows
  • remembering the unbridled laughter of my three kiddos on Saturday playing UP on Wii…
  • past and future coffee dates with friends…something about friends AND coffee
  • Deut. 29: 29 and Prov. 30:5

 

What’s your status today?  I would love to know.
