It's amazing to me how many different emotions can pass through my heart, how many disparate thoughts can cross my mind and how many diverse situations can fill my calendar - all in the course of one day!

Today was such a day...

Condemnation, support, fear, openness, disappointment, wonder, grief, faith sharing, tears, sadness, anger, hope, confusion and some very hearty laughter  --  all in one day!

Some of all that was my own, some was shared with me by those whose paths crossed mine.

A full day it was and a gracious day in all its ups and downs, ins and outs, comings and goings...

It was the day the Lord made, the day the Lord put on my calendar, the day the Lord walked with me...

It was a good day, all in all!

Give me good rest this night, Lord, and walk with me tomorrow...

  1. Thanks Austin.It's good to hear that you are able to put all these things into "a good day".
    Sometimes I find that I struggle to do that and I need to be reminded that the Lord walks alongside at all times.

    I think I often ignore that.

  2. There are days that I GET IT and days that I DON'T. I pray that I do not have many days where I do not get it in a row because it can be dark and lonely.

    It might sound odd, but hearing others struggles does make it easier because I realize that I am not alone. I do not wish bad days on others, but we all have them.
