Begin Anew

It is a gorgeous day out on the back porch.  The sun is shining, a cool breeze is rippling across my neck and through my hair and the hummers are, well, they are humming.

So, why am I alllllll “down-in-the-dumps”?

I have plenty to do.  There is a house to clean, porches to wash off, books to read, a garden to weed and projects to sew.

Photos.  Memories on FB.  

Doggone it.  

Walking down Memory Lane has me around the throat this morning but….

I just looked at my phone and Philippians 4:6,7 was just hanging out in the banner waiting for me to read:

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer

and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests 

be known to God; and the peace of God,  

which surpasses all understanding, 

will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”

I guess I should have started my day in the Word today.  Perhaps, if I had, my worries and the sadness of requests that cannot be granted today would have faded away leaving only those of peace and gratefulness.

The day is not over so I will start anew as I have far too much to do today to get bogged down in the stuff over which I have no control.  

I’m hauling my rear out of this chair…right now!




I thank you God for this amazing day,

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, 

and for the blue dream of sky

and for everything which is natural,

which is infinite, which is yes.

—e. e. cummings
