These are the days...

There is a song from my past that contains the lines "These are the days that I wish to never end, when I wake within Your presence, when we make the day begin, when morning is spent bringing us together..."

Mornings like this one always bring that song to mind. It's 6:52 and I've already exercised; I've just finished spending some good time with God and my coffee. I'm watching Simon slowly wake up in Tim's arms, hearing his morning noises, and watching him touch Tim's face. In these moments, all is right with the world. I wish I could bottle this feeling and open up the bottle later today when Simon is crying, when Ezra is asking me to start a movie or change his clothes for the fiftieth time, when I'm feeling overwhelmed and inadequate. I want to feel this peace when I'm attacking the mound of dishes in the kitchen. I think its possible...the peace doesn't depend on what's happening, but on who God is. I think I'm gonna try it today...these are the days that I wish to never matter what's going on.

Aaaahh...I felt peaceful just reading about a morning like that! Hope moments like that turn into hours like that and turn into days on end like that! oh...I guess that would be heaven, huh? At least it keeps us longing...and we won't have to exercise there! :)
