Doc and I have been out of town for almost two weeks for conferences, and I’m playing catch-up with laundry; and, right now the laundry gets points for out lasting me!
I would rather sit and talk to my friends online, or try writing something inspiring, then wait for any comments that might come. I love comments. I love seeing your websites, hearing your opinions, and meeting new people – I love it all.
I don’t love cleaning up. I need the children to come home and help me. I’m the only one doing household chores now days – what’s up with that? Doc does help me clean the kitchen after supper. He is great.
Water sloshes across sticky hardwood floors and the fragrance of lemon Spic and Span fills the kitchen as I observe the work ahead. My house looks like a tornado has come through it; with shoes, suitcases and swag covering the bedroom floor.
Mail piles high on the Kitchen Island waiting for me to sort, and bills need to be paid. For the past two weeks I have been Cinderella, and now everything has turned into pumpkins!
Doc and I sit outside as the last golden rays of sun tuck beneath the horizon, covering its head with a quilt of green, pink and purple to slumber til tomorrow.
Clouds to the north show a promise of rain for tomorrow, and life returns to a steady rhythm.
Maybe cramming our lives with constant activity does not enrich our experience of life itself.
Maybe, it is in the simple tasks like mopping and laundry that we remember to breathe life in. It is then, maybe, when we slow down, that we recognize the constant gentle volley of breath between God and man.
Maybe, when life slows enough, and we can see the pauses between God giving breath, and us volleying it back, that we see His hand the most clearly. (tweet this)
