Yesterday I climbed out of bed trying to escape the worry that woke me before the alarm went off.
There’s not one specific thing I’m worried about … the worries come from nowhere and everywhere, like a gang of bullies hiding in my head and throwing rocks.
Making my way to the coffee pot, I heard a voice cut through the worry as clear as if Someone were standing right next to me…What if you didn’t worry today?
The idea was so liberating that I said it out loud:
What if I didn’t worry today…
What if I gave Worry the day off?
I grabbed the thought before it ran for cover.
What if I cradled my coffee in my hands and prayed through my prayer list thanking the God who created all things…because He’s got this. Everything on that list…He’s got it.
What if I walked early on the trail, before the sun heated up the landscape and allowed gratitude to fill up the hour~
What if I came home and showered and didn’t berate the reflection in the mirror for growing old…what if I whispered to her: ‘thank you, you’re doing a great job. I even kinda like you.’
What if for the rest of the whole day, I breathed deep and only let in the lovely thoughts?
Wonder what would happen?
I’ll let you know…
~Sending you love and prayers for a worry-free day my sweet friends~
