If we could sit together this morning over a cup of coffee, here are a few things on my mind…
First off, due to circumstances beyond my control, I was unable to post on Thursday and Friday. But it wasn’t for lack of thought of you.
You, whoever you are, sitting on the other side of this screen…you with your unknown face and your own set of life that was beyond YOUR control, are a part of my tribe.
It is an odd thing to sit down here in this extremely messy bedroom that we have deemed “my office” and tap out some kind of something that is on my heart and put out there on the internet..
And then ‘you’ …. whoever you are and wherever you may be and for whatever reason you took time to show up on your screen and we connect for a little bit…
this is a gift of divine appointment and I hope you know God loves you and He loves me enough to give us this unique sense of a moment of fellowship.
You are loved and prayed for and you matter much to the Kingdom.
Second…cause it’s a random day…
Here is a pic of our living room and my attempt to make it fall-ish.
It turned out okay and so since you can’t actually come in for coffee today, this would be your first view of our home when you walked in the door.
Why yes, we did grow that in our garden. Thank you for asking <3
Third, as the Delta variant, mask or no mask, vaccine or no vaccine debates swirl I would like to address the constant presence of anxiety as we move about in this odd new world.
I am sure I am not the only one who moves through my day wondering if I am being exposed or exposing someone.
It is a kind of Russian roulette mentality that casts a shadow over us.
We know it is possible, we all can now name quite a few friends, family members and acquaintances who have tested positive and been quarantined.
And we plan all events on the calendar knowing it could come to a screeching halt at any moment.
But we have to go on and live.
So just know that if you feel stressed sometimes, there is a reason and it’s a good thing to just remember that when we are in times of low level/24-7 potential “anxiety”, we need to eat right, drink lots of water, rest when possible, take those vitamins, diffuse those oils…pray without ceasing and remember God is not surprised by anything up ahead.
Hugs to all of you.
I have to run…again…and I don’t mean for exercise.
Talk to you tomorrow <3
