Outside my window . . . the sun is just coming up and light is beginning to peek in around the draperies.
I am thinking . . . about how tired I feel because I feel asleep late and work up early. At this rate, it might be a long day.
I am thankful for . . . this cool, clear morning and the chance for some solace before the busy week begins.
From the kitchen . . . The kitchen is still dark and silent. I have not yet made the coffee.
I am wearing . . . a comfortable old t-shirt.
I am reading . . . the online edition of the local newspaper.
I am hoping . . . that the week’s weather forecast is accurate because it calls for sunny days with temperatures in the mid-80’s. In other words, perfect spring weather should be the norm for at least the next several days.
I am creating . . . a re-envisioned living room which is why I am sitting in this room using my laptop. I am deciding whether or not I am completely satisfied with the changes I have made thus far.
I am praying . . . that a good friend whose husband died recently is experiencing healing and that her memories of a happy married life will allow her grief to gradually yield to acceptance, peacefulness, and tranquility as she contemplates what her life will be like from this point forward.
Around the house . . . all is quiet.
One of my favorite things . . . is awakening on the day after a special event, recalling what transpired, and reliving the happiest moments. In this case, I am thinking about how special and loved I felt yesterday as we celebrated Mother’s Day.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . include dinner with the friend I mentioned above.
Here is a picture thought and favorite quote for you to ponder during the coming week:
Make use of your imagination: Be still and imagine to yourself that you saw the heavens open and the glorious choirs of cherumbims and seraphims about the throne of God. Imagine that you hear the music of those angelic voices . . . Think upon this till your imagination has carried you above the clouds, till it has placed you amongst those heavenly beings, and made you long to be a part in their eternal music.
