Delighting in my God, I desire to dwell in His pleasure and to help others experience true delight.

"Delight Yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.  
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;..." Ps 37:4-7a

A is for Already, B is for Behind

Yes, 'A' is for 'already'  and 'B' is for 'Behind' because I am already behind.

As I l plopped into bed last night, letting myself relax, eyes just closing, with that end of day comfort sigh, it hit me.  My eyes popped open.  I had failed to enter my first A to Z post.

"Oh well."  I thought."  "Already behind."  That's when it struck me that 'already' started with A, and I supposed I would trash my original 'A' selection and just use 'already'.

I have to admit, though, it didn't occur to me to merge 'A' and 'B' until I actually wrote the words "Already Behind."  It's interesting - isn't it? - how something can be floating around in one's mind, but until you let your fingers do the walking across the page or your mouth do the talking out loud, there will be obvious lessons still yet to be seized.

So I am seizing the moment.  I hope it isn't too much of a rule breaker.  It seems my life is often, already behind, and I have a feeling many can empathize with that sentiment.  So for today, I will take the 'Already' and mix it with a little 'Behind' so that I can look ahead (ooh another 'A' word), beyond 'B' (ooh another 'B' word),  to catch up at 'C' tomorrow.  

Since I threw in the 'C' with 'catch up', can I count 'C' complete? (ooh another 'C' word)  Well, maybe not.

I'll try not to fall behind again until I get to 'F', because then it'll fit. 

                                                                                                         God bless, Maria

    1. Yeah, that's me, the rule breaker. I did much better last year at getting ahead of due dates. Just never got there this year so I'll be scrambling most days. Thanks for checking in. Maria

  13. this is my favorite of your posts in the A-Z so far! haha! It's a synchronicity, or as I call it (on my About page), a God-wink--helping you out in a serendipitous way, as things come together. Nice.
