peace by piece

Date August 20, 2008

Somedays it’s hard to find a rhythm. I catch myself hurrying about, not taking the time to settle into a comfortable pattern. I let memories of yesterdays flood me and forget that there’s a brand new today right in front of me. I get lost in daydreams and wanting and I picture myself in anywhere but here. Children shuffle by my ankles and I don’t ruffle their hair or return their hugs. I loathe the rain and the fact that my feet are forever cold in this country and I let those things affect my temperament.

I avoid people and conversation and wait on the afternoon and a more semi permanent hiding that lies behind my apartment walls. I long for my books and my blanket and some time that is my own. Time to read and to write and to shake this funk from my shoulders. Time to pray and plead and resurrect the most important part of me. Time to spend on my knees letting Jesus peace my heart a bit while He’s piecing it a little more.

    You seem down. Grab a book, some good cover and pray. Tommorow will be a better day. Always enjoy your reads, even the older ones. Have a wonderful day!
