A Morning of Respite

I worked on my computer last night to get my Monday work done so today I can have a morning that nurtures my scattered soul. My plans for today include, putting some pinto beans in the crockpot, bake some cornbread, easy and delicious comfort food that reminds me of my Nana; finish laundry for my family, folding and putting their clothes away while tidying their rooms here and there; reading scripture throughout the morning; praying for the Lord's presence and mercy in all that fills my soul this morning. May my family feel welcomed and loved when they come home, and may I be ready to run here and there with peace of mind when the after school Monday marathon begins. This is where my heart is today, this is where God is calling me to sit with Him.

He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8

Those words just bring peace to me, they simplify the busyness of my day, they bring to light what is most important. May God shine His face on you today, his treasured child whom He loves so dearly.
