It’s been an interesting morning.
God blessed me with energy enough to get up and make my husband breakfast.
Which I truly thanked Him for.
As I buttered his English muffins, I thought of how many breakfasts were served to me as I lay sick in bed.
I talked with my husband about my schedule this morning.
My comments included how I’d neglected to have our daughter teach me how to host a zoom meeting so Jase’s speech teacher.
“So, we will have to talk on the phone.”
He opened my laptop and showed me how to do host a zoom meeting!
Then packed his lunch, kissed me, and headed to work.
What a blessing!
My husband is such a support and encouragement. His job has been a gift from God.
To still have regular employment with so many out of work, is humbling, but really appreciated.
Jase and I prepared for the zoom meeting. Then we sat listening to his teacher, discussing his activities, planning. It was good.
Jase has never done a meeting like this and it was pretty stressful for him.
After it was over I automatically started thinking about getting his math lesson going.
I hadn’t realized just how difficult the meeting had been.
But Jase’s reaction to my comment on getting his math out spoke volumes.
I left the room for a moment, and told him to work on relaxing.
I grabbed the cleaner and started scrubbing toilets, because sometimes I need to clean while thinking.
In this case it was praying.
You haven’t had your walk.
I knew the Lord was reminding me for more than one reason.
My doctor wants me to walk for half an hour five days a week and I’ve struggled with doing it lately.
But today was a perfect day to make sure I got my walk in.
Heading back into the living room I asked Jase.
“Want to go for a walk?”
He didn’t hesitate.
Pretty soon we were striding down the sidewalk.
Jase was telling me about his friends who moved away this week.
Sometimes I’d point to a flower or plant and tell him the name.
A few times we met other people, always keeping distance, but friendly with a kind nod and “Good morning!”.
Our walk was half over when I remembered.
Last summer, while living with our oldest girl and hubby, Jase and I had taken many walks, nearly every day.
I hadn’t thought about them in a long time, but I realized why they were so important.
During our walking, Jase had free time to talk to me about anything he wanted to.
There wasn’t a limit nor an agenda, he could just tell me things.
As I listened to him this morning, it was crystal clear that I’ve not been allowing him enough time to do that.
But there’s never a better time to change than today.
I’ll rearrange my schedule and make sure we walk together.
Because I don’t want to miss the opportunity for him to talk to me.
It’s all to real, these days, that life doesn’t go the way we expect or plan.
The only time I can redeem is the time I’m in.
And I’m so glad God blessed me this morning with cooking breakfast, having a meeting, and walking with Jase.
Praise the Lord!
