I woke earlier than normal this morning, about 5 a.m. My favorite thing to do is sit outside on the glider in the screen room, read three devotionals, pray and read my Bible.
Unfortunately at 5 this morning there wasn't enough light. So, being the creature of habit I am I forced myself to go out of order. I prayed first. There are several people I am praying for right now that I felt needed extra prayers anyway.
As I sat outside, waiting for the sun to come up and the birds to "wake up" I also prayed that my "editor" (the Lord) would lead me today. Before I start working on my latest "work in progress" manuscript, I pray for His guidance.
One of my friends who is battling breast cancer herself is now sitting at the bedside of her 93 year old Mother-in-law. She is not expected to live through the day. My friend has been reading scripture to her. Her son has been talking to her as she "walks through this valley".
While in the screen room this morning, waiting for the sun.....
Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
He's waiting for you Shirley, go in peace my friend.............
