All my life's fussing and fighting, and here I am.

Posted 09-15-2013 at 06:13 AM by LookinForMayberry


Sunday morning.

DH is reading the NYT on his laptop, while Bigun ravages his super-duty Kong to get the three treats wedged inside. I'm on my last -- maybe next to last cup of coffee. It's still dark outside and the only sounds are Bigun's crunching, my tapping, and the low whirring noise from my laptop.

Sigh. Would that all life would be as comfortable and at peace as I am at this moment. This heavenly NOW. Thank you, God.

Yesterday, I started to make a pot of chili for dinner and leftovers. In the midst of the preparing I found I was missing ingredients and had to improvise. I learned how to make Mexican goulash!

I finished the machine stitching to attach the binding to the small lap quilt I started some time ago. I should finish it tomorrow -- today if DH finds some other activity that doesn't include me. It's just a pastime, not a passion. Whenever.

DH says he wants to go for a bike ride. That would be good, too. First though, I've been chartered for pancakes with strawberry topping. Then, it's the daily Bigun walk. Then, well we'll see.

All my life's fussing and fighting, and here I am. Would that I had known all along that the key was to just be still and allow things to come to me in the fullness of time. Indeed. Thank you, God.

Amen.

    For years I counselled a young man, who was always in such a hurry, that life could not catch up with him. Many times I would say, slow down, let life catch up with you but he just couldn't.
    I have not always waited on life either. Good blog!
