A day with the Lord.

Today's been an interesting day for me. Mostly spent in fellowship with the Lord. I haven't done that in some time. I woke up after having a bizarre dream that had absolutely nothing to do with anything (I think... someone I dislike had an affair with another friend's husband. Any interpretations?). I'd planned on doing something nice for the family, to make breakfast for us to eat together, which we haven't done in some time.

I did the usual, cooked, cleaned, and ate with them, and then... I just felt like I missed Him. So I caught up on a book I'd been reading, Desiring God by John Piper, started Brennan Manning's The Ragamuffin Gospel, played around in my Bible, listened to some good worship music, and just enjoyed myself.

With the exception of the time I took to read one novel (about 1 1/2 hours) and the time I took to clean up or make meals, I spent the entire day with the Lord. For some people, this is a regular thing. For me, I'm usually too busy, too stressed, and so it doesn't happen. Or it happens in a small amount and I content myself with that. But today, I gave Him the whole day. And it was wonderful.

Except He spent a lot of time working on my heart and a lot of issues. Things that will probably be coming out in later blogs. So beware...

I need that, too. I always feel like I need to actually leave the house, though. I guess if you can do it there, I can do it here.

I envision a day near the water. Just me and laptop and god. How wonderful. I thin we all need this every now and then.

Danica, tomorrow I am going on a 24 hour retreat - just me and Jesus. It is the best when we can have time alone with our loving God!

Hey I am blogging every day this month so come check it out.

Kay, I didn't get as much out of it as when I leave the house, since I had to take time to rescue hubby from the kids. But it was still good. I do want a leave the house retreat soon!

Jan, a day by the water sounds great!

Robbie, I'm jealous!
