I am trying to develop a schedule and stick to it. I know that there are people that miss things about their lives the way they had it a few weeks ago, BC (Before Corona). I don't have time to miss anything right about now. I am making sure that my children stay productive and that I can be paid for the work that I produce with integrity. So far my work day consists of a cornucopia of meetings. They end with people saying not to be overwhelmed. I see ads for Master Class and I feel like dreaming. I don't have time to dream about doing anything!!! This isn't necessarily true. I'm not thinking about how I feel though I'm just working and trying to develop a suitable home/work schedule.
I like my commute though. I like seeing my children each day and if I miss them (and I miss them) I could just go to their rooms. I am around. I like folding laundry and putting it away for a break. I like going outside for a minute and letting the sun shine on my face. These days have been awesome. I get home on time and I have time to go on a majestic walk with the sun peeking through trees and clouds and it is all so glorious. I don't have to hide my Bible. I can read it and meditate on a verse.
I think of Psalm 19. I posted it below in its entirety. I drink in the sky and I remember the law of God. I am thankful for things that don't seem to change. For the God who does not change. He is the same yesterday, today and for always. I may change. I may wither and die but God... Praise the Lord. In thinking about Psalm 19 and how the sky reveals God's glory, I remembered a song that came out when I was in college. The name of it is "Optimistic" by Sounds of Blackness. The main thought is, "As long as you keep your head to the sky, be optimistic." I want to believe that there is an element of prayer and the sky represents not just the expanse above us but heaven, where God lives. This happy song brought me back in time to brighter days where all I did was dream of all my tomorrows. I want to believe that God is the one that helped me remember. My good and gracious God that helps me through all of my craziness. I am thankful.
