A Peaceful Start
I woke up to rumbles of thunder and rain this morning. I love opening my eyes to this kind of day. Rainy days beckon us to stay in, sit still and ponder life a bit. If I had any energy I would clean like crazy but I've landed a cold and the couch sounds more appealing to me. The painter started yesterday. I have been telling my family for days now that once the walls are painted and we can hang our pictures and shelves and fill them with the familiar, that they will feel more settled. The relief was almost audible when the painters walked in and I think even they were surprised at how thrilled we were to see them. I happily made my coffee and took my sniffling self to the couch. I read from my Bible, C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity" and Shauna Niequist's "Bread & Wine". I'm not sure what the rest of today holds, but with a start like this, I'm prepared. Have a blessed day!
