originally posted 12/31/11I sit at my computer and dream big. Oh, the lists I could make!
There so many are many things I want to read, do, write, organize, and tone!
I sit at my computer and think ahead.
I'm just not into it this year.
You all know I love my lists. But if I write that list of resolutions, I be assuming so many things... and this year, it is not so easy to assume.
I sit at my computer.
The four legs of my chair are holding me up, and my world seems solid. Normal. Predictable. Because of that, there is energy not just for writing lists but completing things.
If my days this year roll along as normal, I may do some productive things.
But I have no guarantee of "normal."
Four legs hold up my chair so I can type. If one breaks, I hit the floor. I won't be accomplishing much from down there.
How many things hold up my "normal?"
That would be a long list.
Friends. Church. Finances. Functioning Government. Good weather. Electricity. Internet. Six healthy children. My health. His health. Our parent's heath.
So instead I think on the Solid Thing.
I think of Him, who has promised to never leave nor forsake me; to guide me in times of "normal;" to tend to me when I find myself on the floor.
Giver of Himself.
Daily gifts for my daily needs.
I resolve to receive.
Grace upon grace.
