Listen to my heart...

Its 8:59 and I just got home, literally walked in the door, set my stuff down, changed my clothes, and opened my computer.

Listen to my heart, I have a song to sing.

I drove away from the Starbucks thinking I am so thankful for Katie Dorband. I’m thankful for a lot of my friends today.

I didn’t necessarily wake up thankful. Yesterday I had determined that I was going to write two things in the morning I was thankful for, and 2 things at night this week because I knew it was going to be a rough, very busy week. So I did. And my day ended beautifully. Busy, and crazy, but it indeed was a beautiful day. Ok, that’s not really true, someone said something about me that hurt my feelings, but I prayed, and fell asleep. But I didn’t cuss anyone out, or say anything mean, I prayed and let God speak to me, so I guess that might be beautiful (as a side note, have you noticed, I’ve been saying “indeed” a lot lately).

I woke up this morning tired. Not at 4:30, but at 5:30… well… I got up and ran the bathtub, went to my journal, prayed, and wrote down two things. I got on with my day as usual, got stuck in traffic on my way to work… My morning, was, crazy! But you know, to whom much is given, much is required. I had a great lunch with a dear dear friend (who is rather handsome) and then back to work I went… can you say overwhelmed? It’s all crazy, and I’m going to have to work while I’m in New York in the morning and probably at night too. Oh well… it’s the way it goes! I can’t wait to go to New York!!

I got a facebook message I was not really expecting! Not happy about that, but I think it’s resolved. Sheesh! Then some other stuff… and all I can think is to be thankful. Hopefully people see my heart… and that just has to be enough. I get my nails done (that’s always good) and then I meet Katie for a coffee (me tea- and Netta, you’re right, Passion tea is yummy!!) and drive away thinking that I am so thankful for the friends that God sends.

I get an email from a friend who read a book I recommended and was thankful and encouraging. (thankful that God uses me). A text from a friend who said that she read my blog and needed it (thankful that God speaks life through me). Driving down the road tears streaming down my face thinking “thank You God for letting me be one of those friends that You send”. Recapping the greatness of today, the greatness of God, and just smiling about how undeserving I am and how very thankful I am.

Then it happens… Savior King starts. I don’t think it was just the coincidence of “shuffle”, God had listened to my heart, and wanted me to sing Him a song. I pulled in my driveway singing “I love You Lord”, just so very thankful for today. I have an hour of work to do… but it’s all good, I am thankful for my job. Very thankful.

I love You Lord!
