So…were there any who may have wondered where I was today? Or, perhaps you just wondered when the post for today was going to show up…? Well, either way, I will tell you – I was between “here” and “there” ~ and so wrapped up in the “there” that I could not break away no matter how much the “here” weighed upon me.
No excuses, just real stuff in real time without the pre-arranged, exact-o control, and go ahead of yourself planning preparedness for………………Monday’s post.
I spent the weekend in Kenai. With my family. My husband. My daughter. My son-in-law. My BABY BENJAMIN !!!! He was on my lap as many times and for as long as I could get him to stay. It was wonderful.
As I write this, I keep trying to figure out how I “SHOULD FEEL.” About what? The weekend? The missed work? The late Monday post? What? Hmmm. I will tell you how I DO feel…
I feel renewed. I feel loved. I feel SO thankful for the memories made and the number of times a baby boy called me “Nonnnn – ie.” I kissed his face. I kissed his neck. I kissed the palms of his hands and every inch of him clear to his toes – all ten of them. I won.
All the effort: planning, shopping, packing, driving…was worth it. I am so grateful God gave me this weekend. He gave me rest. He gave me love. He gave me Life more abundantly. He gave me more love for Him ~ because He saw my need and He knew exactly how to meet it. I can’t get over it. I do not want to get over it. I am forever grateful.
As far as a late Monday post? Ah, you will rejoice with me I pray ~ for God orchestrated events that I may go see “da bb.” And rejoice with me that I did not try to text this post while I was driving! I thought about it…more like wondered if I could?? No.
There may be more “late Mondays” in our future(s). And we will rejoice…in every one of them; because God gave us Monday – all day.
Love you peeps.
Love YOU, Jesus.
