The Day After the Storm.

I spent most of the day in bed yesterday…in my jammies…reading. It was heavenly and exactly what I needed.

People, for the most part, left me alone. Tropical Storm Hanna blew all around us. The wind and rain was comforting and calming yesterday for some reason.

This morning it is sunny, cool and there is a slight breeze ruffling the tops of the trees out the office window.

My quiet time came early for a Sunday morning, thanks in part to napping on and off all day, sleeping like a rock during the night and the pup’s “time to go poddy” arf around 6 this morning.

Sunday School and Worship are the order of the day. Laundry and some gentle, slow cleaning are also in the game plan.

Something God has totally been impressing upon me of late…it is time for me to slow down. Living intentionally. Be more proactive, less reactive. Bring more peace and order and calm to myself and thus my home and family.

Still dealing with lots of changes in Smithland. More coming. I’ve allowed myself to completely get wrapped up in how it all impacts me thus rising my level of anxiety, stress and fear.

It is time to learn how to deal with it better and that begins with recognizing the One in charge. Believing Him. Trusting Him. He is my strength and an ever present presence in times of change.

I did want to share something with you that we received this morning from Brett’s football coach. This is the field we play on. At least we uses to play on. Word has it the water was over 10 feet deep and we have most likely lost this field for the season.
Nothing compared to the damage experienced by other’s from this Tropical Storm or from recent hurricanes, but sure was shocking to us.

  1. I love what you wrote at the beginning! Live life intentionally! GOOD WORD MY FRIEND!I am so sorry about the football field! I pray that God will provide a new place for Brett to play!đŸ™‚ Love you and thinking about you today!T

  2. Whoa! So sorry about your playing field. We were blessed. Generally water floods our yard and runs along the house,down the steps and under the door of our basement. The drain was able to accomadate the water yesterday sparing us a basement flood. Oddly, I didn’t worry about it, just enjoyed the saftey of home.Day by day, living intentionally, focusing on Him and not on the circumstances…I hear what you’re saying!Kathy

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of rain. We had some flooding like that here last spring. I’m glad you had a day to just be. I love those kind of days. I try to take them more often these days.
