Sitting outside. I never made it back in from feeding the leftovers to the chickens. My house is a mess, my husband is tired and my kids are crazy. See, I've swept that messy floor 3 times today, I've mopped it twice(remop after a throw up incident) I've loaded the dishwasher twice, clean everyone of those messy rooms at least once today and somehow it's chaos again. I want to just sit out here on my porch swing and pretend it's not there.
Just sitting here on the swing I look up and see this bird flying high above me all alone. immediately I thought, that looks peaceful must be nice but the spirit quickly stirred my heart. He, my King, is with me wherever I go. Whether that's souring high above in the sky or in a "cage" (like the chickens)with a flock enjoying a mess of leftovers. He is with me. He loves me the same in whatever state I am. So for now in my mess with my crazy kids, tired husband and scary house with piles of laundry, I can say thank you Lord for whether I soar or fall or exceed or fail I am yours. thank you for my crazy kids, messy house and sweet tired husband but most of all thank you Jesus for making me yours and loving me EXACTLY where I am.
