I love Saturday mornings, getting up early when the house is quiet and drinking coffee while doing bible reading and my internet stuff. My kids bedroom doors are "open" which means they are not at home. (see earlier post entitled "Doors") It's nice and cool in the house, thank God, because the past week we've had the hottest weather that I can remember in my lifetime. Every day has been in the triple digits and yesterday we had a high of 106! And they are forcasting a few more days of this intense heat. I think I'll find some good indoor activities.
In reference to my last post, I have a choice right this moment of how I will react to things that will come my way today. Last night after my daughter left to go back to her college town, I realized that sometimes we can't really control our emotional reactions. I felt sad that she and her brother were both gone and the house was so empty. But today, I plan not to dwell on the emptiness I feel, but to stay busy with the things I can do better when everyone is gone. Eddie is still here so we can spend some quality time together. I can start working on recording my music to make my long awaited CD of "Sleep Music." I can start organizing old pictures to get them ready for scrapbooking. I could clean house, but that will probably be at the bottom of my priority list. I much prefer creative activities. Oh yes, I could write some new music. I love days like this when I don't have to go to work, and I don't have to go to Wal Mart and I have a whole day ahead of me to do the things I love! I think I'll get started now.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
