It is early morning in rural Kansas. Today is a Monday, and while the pot of coffee perks on the stove I help hubby get ready for an early clinic he is doing in Ottawa, Kansas. I am thankful he is willing to do these early days in order to help take care of us.
I've done some Scripture reading as he prepares for a long trip to his clinic, reading through I Corinthians on how our body is a temple. At this time of morning I believe my temple needs rebuilt. It has cracks and creaks and it's crumbling in places. We won't discuss the odors from the back of the temple. It's mornings when I'm feeling older than I am that I wonder why the Holy Spirit would want to reside in this imperfect body. There's days I don't want to reside in this broken down body. But one day soon we will have new ones in heaven and there will be no more pain and swelling, arthritis, nerve damage, etc. I'm looking forward to that day!
Today is a typical day here. Kids go off to school, then there's laundry to work on, dishes to do, errands to run, bathroom to clean, meals to cook, and settle down this evening with my needle to continue sewing on a tiered peasant skirt. There will be more in between the chores of course, as things always come up.
I have now enjoyed a pint of coffee from my Mason jar. I don't think it's enough.😉
You all have a great day in the Lord! I'll see you later.....
