An Uneventful Day

I just did something today that I've wanted to do for a long time.

This morning I slept in and caught up on my sleep. I woke up, read my Bible, ate breakfast, and took a nice bath.

I cleaned the house. Not just straightening up so that it looks passable, I actually cleaned - vaccumed, dusted, cleaned the glass, cleaned the bathroom, scoured the kitchen sink.

I had a nice visit with Derek and my mom and sister at lunch.

I got some of that pile of laundry done, which felt good.

Then I just sat on the couch in the living room with a blanket. I turned off the TV, and there was no music playing. Just sweet silence, sleepy breathing from my three dogs who all decided to take a nap this afternoon, and my new library book. I just started it today, and it's promising to be a good one.

Now I'm working on a dinner of chicken and vegetables and this fancy bread, and I'm looking forward to plopping down on the couch and watching the Biggest Loser with Derek tonight, then going to bed early.

I got to just really enjoy my time at home today, and enjoy the task of housekeeping and being a wife without a million other things to do on my list. This was one of those days where all the blessings the Lord has given to me are sharply in focus. It's been refreshing, relaxing, and energizing. Sometimes it's just the little things in life that make everything seem better, and the Lord definitely showed me that today. I didn't get a million things done, but I just took the day off and did some of the things that are worth doing, and I feel very happy and satisfied and thankful right now - I think that's worth more than crossing things off my list.

I love those kind of days. I used to have them all the time before I got my job. I'm very glad to be working and earning money. But sometimes, I miss having the house all to myself, all day, and being able to get all sorts of things done.

Sounds lovely. You nailed it for me when you wrote: "This was one of those days where all the blessings the Lord has given to me are sharply in focus. It's been refreshing, relaxing, and energizing."

I love days and moments when the blessings are sharply in focus. I couldn't have said that better myself.
