The storms continue to show up. We have measured over 5.5 inches of rain at our house since Sunday night. I love the occasional storm. It is kind of like a snow day. Everything slows down. Plans get moved or cancelled. A good cup of hot tea and a book are just what was needed.
4 Days of storms-now I am a little annoyed. The dogs don't know what to do with themselves. Have you seen my hair? This much humidity is not good for anyone. Doing anything requires extra thought. Plus, the windshield wiper situation is frustrating. Either it is not raining enough to keep them on at a steady pace or it is raining so hard they can't go fast enough.
Be careful what you ask for. You just might get it.
When I first started praying, I had a printed-out prayer that I prayed, on my knees beside my bed, once a day. I so worried about doing it wrong that I thought this prayer would cover it all. As my prayer life has evolved, I have found that I spend less time asking God for anything. I spend more time listening and simply being present with Jesus.
Now, I receive what God has for me. It seems to be working out better for everyone. Now, I pray with a good cup of hot tea, a book, a journal, a song, or silence. Wherever and whenever. I discovered that I can pray anywhere any time and I will never cover it all. Thank God! It is a living breathing relationship.
The storms of life show up. Annoyingly so. So does Jesus.
