Beyond the dailies

July 27, 2012 in Faith that Shines,Five Minute Friday

Welcome to Five Minute Friday. A chance for me to exercise my writing muscles without uncertainty and then be blessed by the writings of other who love words. Join us at Lisa Jo’s. Today’s word: beyond.

Summer affords more opportunity to be beware of His creation . The business of school, activities, and the constant knowledge that I am not getting it all done subsides more. And I remember that this life, this mothering, this wifing, this writing, this organizing and even the loved ones who unorganize me, we are witnesses to the Creator. When we are aware of His presence we see beyond our dailies, breathe deeply, and sing praise, knowing that for that moment we are in the right place.
Thirty minutes of silence, each curled in comfy positions, relishing a new story from the library, but all together. The sunset on Lake Huron as our feet sank in perfect sand. The more frequent times when we gather all around the table and eat what He has provided. The morning I woke, on my grandmother’s couch bathed in a golden glow of rising sun and felt Him lightening the loss of her passing. Digging in the garden among the herbs and stopping to smell my hand after touching each one.Those moments I can see beyond are precious, encouraging, made possible by the contrasting dailies.

As a teacher, I also find that summer gives me more time to revel in those moments “beyond the dailies.” Thanks for the reminder to take the time to rest in and appreciate God’s presence.

This is so lovely. Thanks for this. My dailies have been a little overwhelming lately, and this was a welcome post.
