Are you one of those people who really don’t care and usually don’t make your bed?
This is not extremely thought provoking or anything except that I am an EVERY day bed maker. It was an unwritten rule in my house when I was growing up and I just don’t feel ready for my day if it is not made. (weird, I know!)
But today I just didn’t make my bed! SHOCK and horror, I know, but I didn’t!
This whole day has just NOT felt right.
One of my girlfriends is in the hospital right now while they try to figure out why an early 30-something is having a stroke (scary, please pray for her).
My water heater is leaking and about ready to bust (we are waiting for a plumber as I type this).
We had dinner plans with some really nice people tonight at 6pm and we had to cancel (stupid water heater).
We are still putting up Christmas lights (love having them up, really don’t like actually putting them up).
ACK!!!! I am starting to sound like Eeyore…”Thanks for noticing” and I just can’t stand that. So, it makes me wonder, is this all a part of me NOT making the bed today. I mean, can you just wake up, get in a funk, and stay there all day?
Thankfully I found this amazing verse and it brings it all right back home for me.
Check it out, 2 Corinthians 4:16 – “So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.”
It may FEEL like it is all falling down around me, but in reality it is all a part of the preparation for the celebration that God has in store for me. Now, that is worth waiting for, right?
But, tomorrow I WILL be making the bed!!!!
