I am most definitely a home body. I have always preferred long days on the couch or the bed over any outing. Maybe because I am an introvert. I truly enjoy hearing the kids play and sitting out on the deck or in the yard waiting to hear the next “Mom look!”
Of course there are things I wish our home had, like a pool or a lake, in the summer we go to the beach almost daily and while it isn’t far away it would be an amazing asset to our family to be able to literally run out the door and into the lake!
Right now our home is in that fall transition. It is in the mid 50’s outside most days and we don’t want to pay for heat yet because that’s how we roll, so throw blankets are in abundance, as are Snuggies, long sleeved jammies, warm cocoa and candles to steal the chill from the air.
This morning as I write this I am gearing up to the If Equip study once more. I love being in my Bible, I seem to love it even more when the days are cool and I am comfortable to linger longer and think harder and take the time to reflect and write.
I don’t know what it is about the cooler air that makes time seem to stand still, but it does and I am oh-so grateful for these days of hot baths, fall scents and cinnamon sprinkled in my mug.
Today rain is in the air, the humidity high and the chill to the bones. Dogs barking woke me from my cocoon of down blankets and I made my way to the kitchen and had my Plexus Slim. The dogs are fed and in and warm, the cat thinks she is a dog and is munching down left over food and candles are the only light on in here aside from the screen on which I write.
I know one thing is for sure, I don’t have life figured out just yet. I also know that I likely never will and the best of the best is that the Lord God already knows the path where I will travel. The words that will hit the page before they escape my mind, what I will study and learn and how I will pull Him near. He is my everything and will carry me through the everywhere. Praise the Lord –I am blessed!
