Easy Like Sunday Morning
Are we there yet? "There" being the end of this year. Y'all know you're thinking the same thing! It's been too much, and it's been that way since before March if we're being real about it. I'm not gonna lie, I've had some really good days, and some REALLY bad days. But this past Sunday was one of the best. It was just easy. Like Sunday morning.
I don't think I even saw my kids until that evening. I spent the whole day at the pool, just doing nothing. There wasn't anything spectacular going on at the pool either, well, other than the weather...well, that and the butterflies were literally dancing all around me all day. And the cool thing about that is this: When we lived in South Korea I had the honor of volunteering at a single mother's home and we played a game with the women there where we gave the Korean women American names and they gave us Korean names. My name was Nah-beet, it translated to butterfly! More specifically, bueautiful COLORFUL butterfly! I just remember that all the women there were commenting on how "colorful" my personality was and how fitting that name was. I loved it then, and still do! So even though I'm not a bug person, (and yes, butterflies are bugs) I didn't mind them dancing around me and even landing on me this past Sunday.
You see, when we were in South Korea, I fell head over heels in love with The Lord. Like I couldn't get enough. We were as closes as we could be, I was in His word every day, and He was in my heart and soul just as loud and plain as anybody would be sitting next to me with a megaphone. Nowadays, I long for that love. And I know it's me that's caused this to become a long distant relationship, not Him. Sunday I felt like He was flirting with me.
Life can be so hard, harder now than it's been in a while for a lot of us, but the thing is, it's been hard before, and back then we thought it was as bad as it could get. The point is that God's easy. Like Sunday morning!
"Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies." (Psalm 30:9 NIV)
I know we're all struggling, I just hope that you'll each have your own reminder that He is faithful, and He does love us. Nothing that we're going through is bigger or more than His love for us.
