Back to it…

The peonies on the coffee table looked so beautiful yesterday.  The fragrance of peonies is heavenly.  Like roses, but a lot more subtle.

Going back to my office today for the first time since last Wednesday.  It was good to be away for five days, and will be equally good to get back.  I got a lot of sleep over the weekend and a lot of peace and contemplation.  I needed both desperately.

Just looking forward to the day.  It is nice to not dread the day as I have come to do in the last several months.  I have been through some difficult things in my day, and this job is right up there with them.

I gave my sponsee the lecture last night about taking responsibility for herself and looking for what her role is in each situation.  And then praying for God to show her how she can bring something to the workplace instead of demanding that everything be to her liking.  I am not sure she is fluent in this language, she may not have even heard me.  I hope she did.

Therefore gird up your minds, be sober, set your hope fully upon the grace that is coming to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.  1 Peter 1:13

    I remember peonies that my mother grew in Virginia. They were wonderful and can see them in my mind’s eye on the table in the living room. Have a good day, MC, no matter what.

    Do you also think pictures look more sharp and clear on wordpress? Especially, flowers..I noticed it on Louisey’s blog also. Love the rug!

    Rest and contemplation are soothing balms for our cares. Have a lovely day!

    • I hadn’t noticed, but now I will see what I think about the photos.

      I am apparently needing rest and contemplation because it is all I want to do for the past few days. Kinda makes it hard to work!

    And next to the scented peonies on the polished coffee table there is an atlas open to a map of Africa!

    I hope your sponsee is listening, self-awareness is so crucial in recovery.

  4. I hadn’t thought about it showing Africa, but it does. I love Atlases, particularly old ones that show countries that don’t even exist anymore.

    Sponsee called today, said she prayed this morning because I told her to. Oh dear.
