I know if you wanted to you could wave your hand Spare me this heartache and change your plan And I know when he said that you could take my pain away But even if you don’t I pray Help me want the healer more than the healing Help me want the savior more than the saving Help me want the giver more than the giving Oh help me want you Jesus more than anything
I have woken up full of cold, at 5am (thanks baby girl) and can hear my fiancee snoring in the next room. So no chance of getting back to sleep when baby goes down… if I can’t go back to sleep, I’ll make the most of it!
Zen Buddhism teaches us that whatever happens to us, happens to us for our highest good. I’d like to assert that right now, I still feel as though sleep would be preferable, but I have faith, so I’ll continue…
I have taken the opportunity to run a hot bath and soak in some lovely healing essential oils. I’m then going to whip around downstairs and get some housework done (so I don’t have to worry the rest of today) and then hopefully have enough time left to pull some cards, before my zombie family emerge from their beds tired & hungry!
This is lovely because a, I get a little bit of me time, b, I’ll be ready for my family when they get up, and c, I can definitely justify a nap this afternoon now!
I hope your Saturday mornings are beneficial to you, as well as full of love and light!
Today I was in my classroom ( I’m a preschool teacher) when one of the students was sad and I was trying to calm him down, when one of the girls in my class started trying to make him laugh by showing him a toy. Minutes later he got up and started smiling and started to play with his friends so the little girl who tried to help him, called me and said “Miss Paula, i made him feel better” and she smiled at me and her eyes was fill with joy. That made me think that is so sad how we lose our compassion when we get older. At the end its just you and your thoughts.
