Do you ever...


...find it hard to get out of bed on Monday mornings??

{via Bella Notte}

This morning, as usual, I got up early to press hubby's
clothes, make him breakfast, and feed the kitties.

Got it done, sent him away with a kiss and a prayer,

AND

went straight back into my bedroom,
 and hugged my bed!!

I wanted just a few more minutes of restful bliss,

but found my mind being bombarded with junk...

~there is so much to do, how will I ever get it done?
~I won't be able to get it all done
~stress, stress, stress
~how this?
~why that?
~will it work?

BLEH BLEH BLEH!
{pulling covers over head}

Just then... 

something amazing happened!!

Something I knew I was supposed to share
with you!

I hadn't prayed yet, didn't ask God for help, 
but He knew I needed Him,
and like a knight in shining armor,
He began flooding my mind with the most fabulous
{and unbelievably sweet} picture!!

The picture of how He sees me
and all of "His" girls!

God:  Hey!! John, Paul, Peter!  Quick, come here!!
She's awake!  
And isn't she beautiful??

I tell you, when I made her ,
I created a masterpiece, didn't I?

The Guys:  Oh yeah, Lord!  High five!

God:  I can't wait to help her get through her day today!
She has a lot to do...she needs me!

She'll be thrilled to see what she gets done!
And then she'll see, once again, that I'm always here
for her, ready to give her whatever she needs, whenever 
she needs it!

{tears flowing down my face}

The Guys:  Yes, Lord, and she'll be so thankful
and will tell everyone she knows how amazing You are!!

****
Well, sweet friends, 
consider yourselves told.

{huge, teary-eyed smile}

Have a joyful day, and know that
He feels exactly the same way about all 
of His girls!!

Hugs and joy,

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful message with us! Something that spoke directly to me this morning, as I woke up late, sitting here writing to a great friend, and thinking, just another half hour - I could call it a nap!

No naps - you woke me right up! HE woke us both, you carried the message! Bless you!

Have a marvelous day!
Blessings,
Donna

Becky,

I can so relate to this post. When I am moving slow and start my day with things other than prayer everything is so overwhelming. Thank you for the gentle reminder that before the world presses against us, to lean on God. My last post was about my walks with God.

Your Friend,
