The day began with cold rain.
Nice to hear, fitting in a way. I woke thinking of challenges, questions, contemplations over what the day might bring.
I stepped outside, unconcerned with the cold and wet, then turned back towards inside to prepare for the day, the Sunday.
To not be bothered by cold, wet rain speaks volumes in terms of mood, of place in life.
Accepting the day.
Accepting the season.
My spirit, reluctant.
Meal started, dogs settled, lesson studied, dressed for Sunday.
And the sky changed to brilliant blue.
So, we drove; casual talk and heavy, pretty country road, trees clinging to sunlight.
Faith, fear, hopes, goals, concerns and the such.
Almost cliche’, our rambling of topics has become.
Words befitting of our age and place in life, in relationship.
Sunday School lesson taught, choir song sung ….
“Sweet, sweet spirit in this place…surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.”
I join him then. Just us, no children on our pew anymore.
“I could hear your voice, it was good.” He says and holds my hand as we are reminded how to worship.
A sermon on commitment, being committed to your worship.
Being in the moments God brings, noticing He’s there always.
He is faithful.
The day, cold still and darkly stormy again as we drove back home.
Changing three times already, one day, three colors of sky.
House warmed by fire, meal finished up.
We sit together, just the two, with good food.
He offers up prayer that God keep us in His will.
Then football for him, painting for me.
A sweet, sweet spirit in this place, this season.
God will make this happen. For He who calls you is faithful.
I Thessalonians 5:24
