Time Flies

Wow, time flies whether I'm having fun or not. I have no earthly idea how long it's been since I've posted, but I'm awake before 6:00am this Sabbath morning and so here I am. 

As I sit here in my recliner I hear the noise of a distant truck revving its engine, the ticking of our grandfather clock, and hubby's steady breathing as he sleeps. 

I love the semi quietness of early morning. I've already read about half of my daily bible readings. I need to still my heart and fall asleep again, but I've missed writing here so I continue. 

My life used to be so integrated into the ticking of the clock. I would rise around six, get into the word, have a cup of tea, make my list of "to dos" and start my day. I still make bible reading, prayer and meditation a daily first, but now it's whenever I rise. My life is no longer ruled by the predictability of the clock. My new husband of two and a half years is very spontaneous, therefore I am learning to be spontaneous. Well sort of. 

I'm looking forward to watching a favorite Messianic Rabbi teach on the weekly Torah portion, but his teachings are either video or audio so that will have to wait. I'm also hoping to do something artsy in my craft room. My time is spent much differently these days.

I've actually been doing some gardening this spring! I've planted begonias, impatiens, forget-me-nots, tomatoes, spearmint, peppermint, garlic, moss roses, and basil. Of course before I planted I had to weed. Our little flower bed was full of grass. I have loads more grass to yank, but I'm doing it a little at a time. I soak an area then I wait and lastly I yank and toss. The garden is already full of baby four o'clocks and Mexican primroses. They will most likely take over the back of the flowerbed, they always do. 

I just realized I have been having fun. That explains why time has flown by so fast. I'm ready to nap a while and hit the day resting. 

Until we meet again. 

Love never fails...
