weekend piddling …

November 19, 2011

i am home this beautiful fall afternoon, with a sleeping baby, my girl gone on a sweet play date. i’ve been piddling – tackling chores and lists and projects that have been piling up. my focus: prepare for my hubbys’ return! tomorrow. i am so ready. it’s been a long 7 days … only one more to go.

when he left, in an attempt to set an update, positive tone for the week, i created a document for me and maddie: one column “work”, the other column “play.”  i listed some major chores that needed to be done, then we brainstormed together about “play” ideas that would help the time pass with activities to enjoy.

well, in reviewing our list today … we found that all the “play” items had been done, but we were lacking completion in the “work” category. lol. so she’s been a very hard worker this morning and i have floated in and out of many things (as mama’s do, right?). i have completed some of my list, and as my dear friend ernestine exemplifies and encourages: tackle one project. it will feel good to have it done. she is so right. so, the cabinet under our kitchen sink is no longer funkalicious (has it ever been cleaned?!) and the laundry room is looking so much better.

my thoughts are scattered so i have nothing super cogent to capture in this space … other than, we’ve experienced the faithfulness of our Father again, abundantly, this week. there were a few circumstances that threatened my peace and yet, even in the craziness, i had peace. i remembered the words of a friend, who said that perhaps the “worst-case” scenarios, if they came to fruition, wouldn’t be so catastrophic after all. wise words that i am experiencing. GOD is faithful.

a dear friend sent me this scripture this week and i’ve been encouraged by the words of David:

“then our sons in their youth

will be like well-nurtured plants,

and our daughters will be like pillars

carved to adorn a palace.

our barns will be filled

with every kind of provision.

our sheep will increase by tens of thousands,

be tens of thousands in our fields; our oxen will draw heavy loads.

there will be no breaching of walls,

no going in to captivity, 

no cry of distress in our streets.

blessed are the people of whom this 

is true;

blessed are the people whose GOD is

the LORD.”

psalm 144:12-15

    ” ‘Happy’ are the people whose ‘Elohim / Powers / God’ is ‘YHWH / He who causes to exist’.”
    May we find happiness in what He has caused to exist.
