I get to get up and take a warm shower.
I get to make breakfast and there are several choices included.
I get to pray and spend time with Jesus.
I get to go to work.
I get to come home and rest, go for a walk or bike ride.

This list could go on and on.

I am reminded that I have a choice to focus on things that really matter.
Not waste energy on negative talk.
As I walk through the day everything I think, say and do is a choice.
Will I put things into the right perspective.

I was just sitting here before I wrote this praying.
I get to find a spot in my house and spend a quiet moment being still.
I read this.
In union with Jesus you are complete.

Enough said for today. Peace be with you.

if your shirts wrinkled.                                                    
if your hairs not perfect
if you forgot your cell phone at home
if the dishes are dirty
if the laundries not done
if your beds not made...blah, blah, blah.

Why do I judge myself if things are not done perfect?

I'm sure you could go on and expand the list if you want. Maybe you could set your mind at peace by just giving yourself permission to not be concerned about such unimportant stuff.


God's not remote; He's near. We live and move in Him, can't get away from Him!

These words are sacred.

The Lord makes His face to shine upon us and is gracious to us.

Maybe today we need to look around and catch ourselves when we're being hard on ourselves and ask "Who cares?"

Enjoy the new mercy for today. Be glad!
