Manna

I am a list person.

I make lists for everything. To Do lists, Shopping lists, Thinking lists,?Inspirational?verses lists, Books I want to read lists…

Sometimes when I am inspired by something specific during my quiet time, or just during the day, I start worrying that I will forget it. So I write it down for when I need it. It might help me some other day. And then I hope I’ll remember to read it. Because that idea was just so awesome, and I really needed to hear that, and it helped me so much.

But you know, that was my manna for the day.

Sometimes I read it again and don’t feel inspired. It was my manna for last week.

If I would really believe that THE moment would come, you know, the one where you have inspiration and everlasting time and your are totally grown-up and the situation is just right…Then I could just put it of till then.But that won’t come, will it?

So I have to chose today and tomorrow and these times right now to do what I want to do.

When I look back to today, I don’t want to remember me longing for tomorrow; For the perfect day and time that I never quite got to.

I want to make memories today and become a better wife and mom and friend today and live like Jesus might call me home tonight. If He were to […]
