What do we say about Tuesday? Well today, we say Hooray!!!! Ever have one of those days when you wake up and everything is instantaneously all right with the world? It’s a beautiful Spring day and I have mad verses running through my head (I know, I’m getting trippy on pollen!) … Spring is here, the grass is riz, I wonder where the flowers is? … go with me people, it’s a beautiful day!!!
Ok, ok, raptures over, I AM writing this at work after all, and I have a GLORIOUS day of accounts ahead of me … but I have turned over several new leaves in the last couple of days, which I think can be explained by two sayings which have also had an impact (I’m not normally hugely poetic, but sometimes things just stick!) …. 1 – “We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us” Joseph Campbell and 2 – ‘If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got’ Anonymous … impressive grammar on the last one but hey, who said revelation had to be word perfect?
No 1 just struck me completely last night … it’s from a devotional called Gardening for the Soul by Sister Stanislaus somethingorother … and it just sounded so absolutely spot on .. exactly what we should be doing … taking a deep breath and letting God give us all the glorious things He has planned, listening to where He’s directing us, and taking our inheritance … not constantly fighting against Him and doubting the possibilities because they may take us out of our comforable little zones … this is not to say that we completely abandon all common sense of course! … but I get such a sense of freedom from being reminded, yet again, that God’s plans for me are bigger, better, and infinitely more satisfying than anything I can come up with myself! Too cool!!
No 2 … just sensible really … one of those ‘duh!’ moments!
Have a gorgeous day wibblers, it’s a wonderful world! [that’s not to say there aren’t terrible things happening around the world – but if we’re praying and doing all we can to make it a better place, we’re doing all we can – no more guilty feelings!’]
Shoe of the Day: Old faithfuls (which are looking much the worse for wear!) … resoled, reheeled, ‘work thongs’ … 1 inch heel, lovely blue suede straping across the top of the foot and for the thong ‘bit’ … comfy, smart, and sadly, almost at the point of no repair … must find a new pair!
