Life has been overly and exceptionally busy here lately. The days are packed with gardening, picking, freezing and, canning, with all of life’s other requirements shoved in among the cracks and crevices. And a few things that I would not choosen to shove in, but are there none the less.
The days don’t seem near long enough, but at the same time seem entirely too long, as my limbs feel heavy and my brain slow!
There have been too many days here lately when I have felt like the day has just gotten away from me. The list on my dry erase board still taunts me and more seems to get added and less gets crossed off. At those times I can get frustrated and feel like I can’t manage one more thing. But, God is good and gracious. Each time I feel I can’t go on He blesses me with a gift. Most often it’s something from nature that reminds me He is so very near to me. Or it is a song that seeps deep into my soul and reminds me he is holding my hand.
The other night it was the cool, soft breeze through a cottonwood tree that calmed my soul. It was as if God reached out His hand and stoked my cheek. In the quiet of my mind and heart I new He was telling me to give it all to Him. I knew He was telling me to take His had and trust. I was reminded how much He loves me. And I knew that He was right there beside me.
Oh how I need to remember when I feel like the day is getting way out of hand, to just turn to my Lord and Savior. He alone is my strength and refuge. He is the breeze that brushes my cheek, the glorious sunset that tells me of His majesty, the laughter bubbling from my children. He is in everything and is everywhere.
He is my DAY!
