Joy Of Dawn

Each new day shows His grace, love, and mercy

Ordinary Spring Day

Pretty ordinary Spring day. The sun is shining and the the skies are darkened in rain. I’m watching my handsome man write his own blog post. It isn’t a thought he has been sharing since Tuesday. Dear seems to be quite a studious studier. I know little about the subject but I’ve gained quite an insight from him these past few days. I enjoy watching him work. It reminds me of myself when one of my stories has taken over my life… Which won’t be happening for at least several months. I’m a busy girl til then at least but details on that will come to you on those matters at some point. For now… I’m just watching Dear type and put his thoughts together.
I’m starting back with CrossMark this coming weekend. If you don’t know what that is then let me explain. They are the ones in your supermarkets promoting products. There are other companies that do the same thing, just happens that CrossMark is the one who works with our local Walmart. I did this before a few years back but the hours were irregular and not enough to support myself. Now with cleaning jobs, they are perfect for me to work with again.
I’m still going through everything in my room. I’m taking it slower than I probably should be but I don’t see the need to rush. I went through a stack of notebooks and reduced them to some filler paper. Most everything else went in a trash bag. One day soon I’ll carry it out and burn the entire contents of the bag. So much stuff! It has been forever since I’ve gone through all my clutter. I actually have two bags to burn. I kept a ton of school papers for some reason. Well… Not anymore. 🙂
The rain has past again and the blue skies are a bit cloudy but for some reason it reminds me of the yellow daffodils I saw the other day. Which all for some reason reminds me of Easter…
I don’t know why yellow daffodils remind me of Easter but they do even more so than the Easter Lily. I think it might have something to do with the bright color after such drab weather. Like the evidence of new life. Anyway the holiday went very well! Met up with some friends after church and made some plans. Then spent most of the afternoon with Dear’s family. Even got to listen to him play some guitar with his cousin. 🙂 It was a good time and an interesting experience. Aren’t all family gatherings? 🙂
I feel like I’m going on without any real purpose. It is just that I hadn’t posted anything in such a while that I thought it might be a good idea to share with you even if it was just to get me back in the mode. 🙂 I hope your finding ways to enjoy Spring!

I Know… I’m Not Alone

God has been making it pretty clear what He wants from me lately. So clear that having faith and trust in His decisions is easy. That doesn’t mean that everything He is saying is easy to deal with. I know I’m not alone. I know lots if people go through similar things. I know that they are all asking God the same question I have been. “Why? Why is this necessary? I don’t understand why Your doing this.” It isn’t like other people don’t go through similar things all the time. It is just that it isn’t what I want and I don’t see how this fits into the puzzle of life.
Still He asks me, “Do you trust me?”
Of course I trust Him. More than I trust myself. I don’t understand the why but I understand that no matter what the answer His way is best.
So my sweet darling man is going away for about two weeks for his job. They don’t have work here right now so they are sending them out for rotations. I’ll miss him …a lot! Everyone tells me it will be alright and I know it will. Yet… I know I’ll miss him. Fortunately he has a new phone so we can text and call all the time! Someone suggested we should Skype but… that would make it worse for me I think. And… I’ve written him a letter for everyday that he is away. I have two more to do up. 🙂 Writing is my thing if you haven’t been able to notice from my blog yet… and Dear likes the letters I make for him.
I know I’m not alone. My friends and family are here for me. God is here with us the whole way through this things. So I might not want him to leave but… God has it all covered and I’m just trusting in Him.
