The Late Night Post

I fell into bed last night and went to sleep right away. Exhausted from a busy, long day. My day had started very early, at four a.m. and there had been several hours spent stirring apricot jam over the hot stove. It was a good time, coupled with a visit from a friend, several laughs, and my children playing with Lego on the counter.
The afternoon engaged my focus with a team meeting at our ministry house and I found it entertaining to see just how much I don't know about what I'm doing!  I rushed home after the meeting seeking God's guidance and wisdom, eagerly listening for anything He might have to say.
My evening was delightful as I enjoyed time with my daughter in law. Our dinner consisted of chocolate and apricots. We played a game with my son and daughter, and spent time talking; it was a treasured moment.
By the time my kids were safely tucked in bed, and my daughter was off to her own home, I was ready to be done for the night. It had been a long day, busy and full. I slept for four hours, now I am awake! I had a good long nap, and I can't go back to sleep. Fur Ball is pacing the floor, panting, but other than that, the house is quiet. I could get up and work, or just sit here and write, or try to sleep, or read...
I could text my husband, he's out of town right now, and he's probably awake.
Now, it's two a.m. on Monday. I do not know what this day will bring, but I pray that I will be able to rely on the promises God has given me.  As I walk through another day with Him, I will remember how He has walked with me before, and carried me before, and I will have faith. I do not know what today will bring, but because of the way He was in my life yesterday, I want to remember today that He is faithful, steadfast, loving, and kind.  He is my Shelter, it's okay to rest in Him.
Say That Again, Jesus, You have walked with me and carried me, I can have faith in You.
