The Time I’m Given

20 Aug

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I stood still, looking out the window as the sun burned off the foggy haze laying low on the fields.

There is a certain serenity, a peace, in a scene such as this.

The day is new, and as of yet, untouched.

Taking in the quiet stillness of the morning, feeling the slight coolness in the air.

Knowing that the heat of summer will be, but a memory in another short month.

I’m thankful.

Thankful to be here…at this place….in this time. For whatever reason God has chosen.

May I be worthy of the precious time that I’ve been given.
For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”  Esther 4:14  NIV

Today I am thankful for:

* a new day

* a freshly cut lawn

* the spinning windmill

* my children

* freshly perked coffee for my husband

* anticipation of family to visit

* the last days of a hot summer

* opportunity

* God, who provides for all my needs

* love….always love.
