The challenge this week for the God-sized Dreams Sisterhood:

 What’s a typical day in your life like right now? How can you see God’s hand in the middle of the “small” and ordinary too? 

Most mornings I wake before dawn.  I love the stillness in the house as I pad first to the bathroom then to my study to turn on the light, and then down the stairs to make a cup of coffee.  Yumm!!

What is a typical day?  Since the Lord called me out of full-time para-church ministry and convinced me that I was needed full time at home, it's been an adjustment to say the least.

During almost 45 years of marriage I was a stay at home wife and mom the first 10 years; an administrative assistant, then Office manager, in an architectural firm the next 23 years; 10 years in ministry to single mothers and their children and now a full time help-mate to my husband while pursuing my God-sized dream.

I'm blessed to be able to spend more time with the Lord than before.

There have been health concerns to deal with which necessitated "sitting still" and leaning into the Lord for what seemed like my very breath at times.

Our great God has been so very faithful.  He has held me when I thought I'd fall apart..whispered His love to my soul when ringing in my ears and distractibility threatened to drive me off the narrow way, and increased my capacity to love others as He poured His love into me through the pages of His Story!

Coffee and God's Word jumpstarting my day.

Laundry, ironing, grocery shopping, and nutritious meal planning and preparation. 

A sounding board and encourager for this man the Lord has given to me to love.

Strong arms to hug me at the end of the day.

The sights and sounds of a not typical day...for interspersed between the lines are interruptions woven throughout the fabric of time.

Moving, ever moving, with the Lord at the helm, toward His dream for me to love others as He is loving me!

"Red or yellow, black or white....each is precious in His sight.  Jesus loves the little children of the world."

Oh sister dreamers, we may be little no more, but we are His!!!!!!!

Sunday's coming.......when we will rejoice that He, our Lord,

He, is ALIVE!
