Saturday. Sunny. Perfect temperature. Breezy… Just exactly the right breezy for my perfectly tuned wind chime to be singing to me as I sit here in my front porch swing. This is one of my very favorite places to be, and I can spend hours here writing, drawing, reading, praying, sleeping… The music from the wind chime matches the music in my heart and head today. Happy. Peaceful. Bright. Cheerful.
I actually slept late this morning, which is a VERY rare thing for me to do. I am a morning person, up at 5:00 or 5:30 every morning. And even though I got up late, I still made my cup of coffee and headed to my studio and my desk… My other favorite place. God waits there for me every morning, meets me there. And He is patient if I sleep in.
It is unusual that there are no words with the music in my head today. Just happy music. I am in a heightened state of happiness and peace today. Yesterday was pivotal for me, a day of decision. And I feel as though I’ve made the right one, the good one.
I have felt for a long time that God was leading me away from some things and toward others. Writing this blog was a first step in that direction. It has brought me closer to The Lord, and helped me sort out some things in my mind and heart. Working through the music in my head every day has shown me how The Lord is with me, even through the night. How he sings over me and loves me enough to be with me even when I’m asleep. I love how the Holy Spirit stays with me all day.
I am excited to see where God will take me during this next phase of my life. To see how I can serve Him and those He places in my path to love and care for. Because that’s what I want to do in any phase of my life, or through any endeavor… Glorify The Lord who gives me the songs every morning.
