I am glad for Sundays and a slower day of the week. I am thankful for
a day of rest
fresh flowers from my hubby that cheer the whole room
a very loving bootso cat
cheery red cardinals outside and inside (on pillows etc)
warm snuggly blankets
the antics of the squirrels interacting with my neighbor's cat
candles (real and battery run)
homemade Earl Grey Latte
romantic comic books (these always make me appreciate my hubby more!)
the higher type church service--I love what the symbols and sacraments represent
I love the gifts God has given us .....not just those that are "spiritual gifts" , but the gift and beauty of His creation. I love the warmth of the sunshine and the uplifting psychology of light.
I love the colors in creation---pretty amazing stuff. I love the gift of His Word--both Christ and the Bible. I love the power and depth of the written word.....the more I read it the more I see how little I understand of His great love and of his doings in this world. I love thinking about the grandeur of the universe and its complexity in the big and in the small. I love the variety of foods and textures. I love the creativity of mankind and its reflection of God. I love the variety of music and how it touches our inmost parts.
I love the quietness of a small town.
I love the quietness of a Sunday in a small town ;-)
I love the softness of the winter sunlight.
I like the beginning of a new year....being able to think about goals. I tend to be sloppy and not work towards anything specific. I need to be a bit more goal oriented or life will be more of a drifting of time---I have been seeking the presence of God in daily living and have not been thinking about the specifics. I need to get down to some specifics in certain areas. --ie Bible memory, better organization of time and things....etc. Sundays are good to reflect more on the week ahead and goals to be pursuing.
