This is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.   -Psalm 118:24

Yesterday I was missing my children and wishing summer could continue after they left for their first day of school.  That was yesterday.  I’m totally over it now!  It just took one day at home and a few hours to myself to remind me how good this time of year is, too! 

I had a great day today!  It began with me curling up in my prayer chair, with a cup of hot tea, knowing endless quiet stretched ahead of me.  Much needed rain was falling—pouring— outside.  It was such a treat to just be inside and enjoy the sound of rain!  I read my day’s reading from Praying the Names of God, prayed, then took a short morning snooze (something I don’t usually do).  After that I was ready to start the laundry and do some cleaning.  I was enjoying my day so much that I actually enjoyed those things, too!  My husband was working from home today, so we spent time together for lunch and before I knew it, it was time to pick up my younger son from school. 

Summer is over, but that’s ok.  I’m ready to savor the goodness of this season, too!  May you see the blessings of your day, too!
