Journaling Day 7
Fell asleep pretty much when I got home of pure exhaustion. Physically and emotionally just plum tuckered out. Between getting an amazing text from Maria and having to bid a fond goodbye to a co-worker I've worked with for over 5 years, Sunday was his last day of work.
I just wanted to rest. It was as if my heart had two extremes in one afternoon. Felt too over the top.
A good cry over Maria's healing.
A sad cry over Matt leaving.
I remember having a full conversation with God before falling asleep.
Expressing to God how my heart is full today. My tears are full today. Heavenly Father fill me with grace and cover and protect my heart.
Asking him to strengthen my spirit. The beauty of having such a personal relationship with God is letting him know the desires of our heart.
I slept for 5 hours and here it is a little after 10 pm.
Tomorrow I start new, you reading this can start new,as well. Have the memories yet a do over in the morning. Ask God for a renewed spirit and fresh start. Go and seize the day. Pay more attention to people. Be kinder. Find a way to be more obedient today. Be more present. Be more yourself. Be the person you needed growing up. Show up. Be grateful. Give thanks.
Create in me a pure heart, Oh God,and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

This. An example of when I see something that speaks to me yet missing a biblical reference. I then add one.
I don't want to go through life missing a biblical reference. That's were I find peace with the pieces of my story I left behind and continue to leave behind. The people, their reactions and lack of action. Boundaries set,then pray from afar. I've come this far to be in the mist of drama.
For many years my go to was Lord, soften my heart .Just soften my heart. Now my recent motto: Is this biblical? Find a reference. Where's my bible?
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

Went to bed way too early .Fell asleep at @10pm then woke up at 3am. Had some quiet prayer time and now looking at pictures on my phone. It's going to be a long day. Have to be at church at 7am.
My usual time to fall asleep is about midnight or 1am. It's rare for me to go to bed early. It just is. Do you have a regular bedtime routine ? Any night time rituals?
For now I look at all the pictures on my phone so I can see The Pretties".
Sharing The Pretties.

Before I left church I took a few pictures of flower arrangements.
I love flowers. I don't know names, I just love them. There's something about the sight and smells.
I don't even have a favorite. I love them all.Do you have a favorite?
Bloom where you are planted.
