Cold-Rainy-Day Thoughts

It's cold, dark and rainy here in my Oklahoma town.

And my bed is calling for me.

The warm blankets and sheets. The cool breeze of the fan. It's a perfect recipe for snuggling back into oblivion.

But I've got things to do.

Dishes to unload.
A baby girl to feed.
A growing boy to awaken.
Meals to prepare...
You wives and mothers know the routine.

It's another day to be thankful for; another opportunity to do something for the Kingdom.

It could be something as simple as singing joyfully with my children about our Savior and His upcoming birthday celebration!

Or it could be visiting a neighbor and sharing the news proclaimed long ago to some scared shepherds in a field.

"A Savior has been born! He is Christ the Lord!"

This Season is His. This day is His.
How would He have me to live it?
Who would He have me to meet?
What would He have me to say?

Whatever His plans, may I obey them.

And when the day is done, I can crawl back into the bed that beckoned me earlier this morning. And I will sleep sweetly, knowing that the Lord can use the weakest vessels around. The failures, the flaws. The victories. The mundane daily tasks. The simplest moments in life. For His Kingdom purposes.
