One more week until Christmas. Two more weeks of the year. I'm pausing here for a few quiet minutes before I attack my lists.
This past week our city stopped for an inch of snow. We will be going to school still in July. Pretty sky though. And the giggles and frosted noses will be remembered when my kids are grown.
French basalmic pear and cheese pasta. Yum.
I did other things this week; read contracts, paid bills, dealt with angry people and tired people. I hurt for those in Allepo and Mosul and watched a video about rescuing children caught in trafficking which honestly made me ill. I slogged though a couple days of a melancholy mood. Do you do this? I end up feeling ungrateful which winds the mood tighter.
I read my Bible. Typically a good choice when I'm stuck. I should do it sooner. This verse got me.
"I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, And My people will be satisfied with My goodness," declares the LORD.”
Oh my yes. Fill my soul. My schedule and my stomach and my want list won't do it. My questions only find room when He fills my soul. The goodness of the Lord is what the celebration is about.
My heart floods with the the beauty of the snow and the bounty of the blessings and the ability to make a difference in the wrongs around. Come on my wandering soul- center on the rock. He is faithful and I am satisfied.
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
