The Sun is Up

The sun is up and so am I. I thank God for a good night's sleep in spite of what had been an aching hip from my fall yesterday. I am thankful for all the herbs that are piled on my kitchen table from when they had to come in out of the rain yesterday. I thank the lord for the hopes of a long hot bath. Lord help me never take access to good water, not to mention HOT water, for granted. Thank you Lord for my sleeping family and the church we will attend in a few hours.

I hear the kitten crying for food. There are things to be done.

I will leave you with the song that I sang in my brain while I slept.

Jesus I am Resting Resting


Jesus I am resting, resting

In the Joy of what Thou art;

I am finding out the greatness

Of Thy loving heart.

Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee,

And Thy beauty fills my soul,

For by Thy transforming power

Thou hast made me whole.


Jesus, I am resting, resting

In the joy of what Thou art;

I am finding out the greatness

Of Thy loving heart.

O how great Thy loving kindness.

Vaster, broader than the sea!

O how marvellous Thy goodness,

Lavished all on me!

Yes, I rest in Thee, Beloved,

Know Thy certainty of promise,

And have made it mine.


Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus,

I behold Thee as Thou art,

And Thy love, so pure, so changeless,

Satisfies my heart;

Satisfies its deepest longings,

Meets supplies its every need,

Compasseth me round with blessings;

Thine is love indeed!


Ever lift Thy face upon me,

As I work and wait for Thee;

Resting 'neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus,

Earth's dark shadows flee.

Brightness of my Father's glory,

Sunshine of my Father's face,

Keep me ever trusting, resting;

Fill me with Thy grace.

This is a favorite song of mine. It means a lot to me because the widow of a very close friend of mine and of my husband's sang it at his funeral.
It is in MY brain at night at times also.
Sorry about your fall-was it bothering you this evening? You didn't look very comfortable in the pew across from me...
