I’m considering it a blessing to not have much to write about today.
It’s just a mundane, dreary, rainy, and ordinary day. Get the kids off to school, then go volunteer at school, go get groceries for the week and de-clutter the home as company for bible study arrives this evening.
It can be looked at as writer’s block or simply a time to ponder. It can be looked at with frustration or simply a time of rest. It can be looked at with discouragement or simply a hint from the Author Himself to be still and listen…or to pause.
I actually read today, “…whenever God speaks to us it’s pause-worthy.” So I’m going to consider this pause a gift. I’m in the middle of the book The Sacred Echo by Margaret Feinberg. I highly recommend it. (And if you live in the Burlington, NC area, there’s a bible study based from this book. Click here if you want more information.)
So, turn the ears on and listen to the soul. After all, it is part of His story…His love story.
Still counting reasons to thank God:
