It seems impossible for me to go to bed without Jesus as my main thought and to wake up with Him as my main thought. Just the mere thought of living in His Presence consumes me. Just the mere thought that I always have His attention is beyond humbling.
Isaiah 26 3-4 says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:”
I can't wait to see what this day holds for me and Dan as we continue to rest in The Lord and in one another. This cup of coffee is great and toasty as this morning is a wee bit chilly.
Well the mid morning walk that I decided to take was so peaceful and relaxing. Since my heart surgery I haven't had the energy to go on walks or to even walk to the bathroom without feeling exhausted. Today Tori and I had a thirty minute average pace walk. At the end of our task I was less than 100 feet from the condo building and I stepped up onto the sidewalk only to stumble and fall. The fall was bad. I busted up my left knee, my right shoulder and my right cheek bone. Thank God for a couple who came to my rescue. They were so kind to help me and to calm Tori. My sweet Dan just held and pampered me when I walked in the room and he saw the damage. He felt so bad for not going with me. I just really needed to take that walk alone this morning. My wounds will heal.
After the fall Dan drove me to Walgreens to get bandages and suave to cleanse and medicate the wounds. From there we went to Tanger Outlet and bought Dan two pair of shoes. Then to our traditional Cracker Barrel for pintos and roast beef.
We laughed at lunch over my fall, then we laughed at Tori on a leash (that she has never had to be on) we laughed in the elevator about Dan taking her to potty and she almost got caught outside the elevator while he had the leash on her and he was in the elevator, with leash in hand. He said he could just see her going down with her body smeared to the outside of the elevator doors. We have enjoyed our silly moments and especially our laughter and conversations. God has been so present in our smallest of details.
I just returned from taking Tori for a potty trip. I realized that I don't even get to do this at home. I realized how much I enjoyed doing it. It gets me outside and I walk. That's good for my health. It is 8:26 and I just called and talked to my godson Will Spears. I love that young man so much. I heard he had the flu so I just needed to hear his voice and to thank him for his hard work at the conference. He is so loving and helpful and such a great part on New Desire Ministries. I'm thankful for this sabbatical time that I could have time to personally thank him via phone not a text.
I can honestly say that I am totally relaxed and stress free. It's been years since I have been in this condition, if ever. Thank you Lord for this time. The evening sunset was gorgeous as usual.
