Be Thou the best thought of, by day or by night...Waking or sleeping, Thy presence, my light.
You wake up to a beautiful and still Sunday morning but you do not feel ready for the new day. Infact, you are feeling rather lost...can't quite remember your way to grace...feeling spiritually poor.
You are daunted and overwhelmed by the rather long list of 'important' things to do. You are daunted with how you will find God today and please Him and love Him. You have a great need to make this day beautiful in many ways but where to start?
So you start with something simple....the smell of coffee brewing; speaking kindly to those waking up, planning the next step in finishing the strawberries preserves and sending somone out to get eggs for the cherry clafouti.
Keep moving out towards the flower garden.
Let your hunger for God be honest and raw. He is waiting.
There is a nose somewhere in the house that keep trying unsuccessfully to open the toilet lid as it bangs on and on. Ignore Bertie, the cat, as he whines, noisy Hank as he bangs his food dish and barks for his toy because it is all music. Keep moving out towards the flower garden.
