Dawn awakens the sleepy morning, smelling the remnants of last night’s breeze. Trees bare signs of a new lease on life – happy to be out of the woods of winter. Our Father ordered the winds to turn. I sit on the lanai rejoicing, lovin’ life. I take a second to thank God, not for the luxuries of my lifestyle, but the minute joys in my life. My first thought is humbling, and it begins with a peace of mind for I know everything is according to His will. A synchronized spiritual way of life, God’s divine is taking hold.
Confident, my mind drifts off to other similar amenities that make lovin’ life much easier. It is security though not the financial kind. (I gave that to God to handle). The security of my love, my wife, rests in the palms of His hands. It is a love that evolved on an evening walk. I took her hand in mine and felt a spark. At the time, I couldn’t do anything about our relationship, but God had greater plans for us. In hindsight, how obvious His signs were to us!
Like designer’s attire, some things may not fit, but some things make you feel comfortable. Almost like the boots I lace, I walk in the footprints of Christ’s path. I follow Him relentlessly and comfortably too, just lovin’ life. Treading only in faith, I believe in miracles. Without them, you have little left but doubt. Today, I cover my soul with a baggy Destin sweatshirt, proudly displaying the place I took her hand in marriage. I claimed her as mine, just as God so ordered in our prime.
Success is an absolute acknowledgment that where you go in life, Christ is with you. Anointed by His Father, you find your seat for the last scene is about to commence. Rsvp! You wouldn’t want to miss seeing this script played out! You don’t have to be in the front row. Just believe you are where you need to be when our Big Brother arrives to greet us.
So, I watch the sun majestically calling as it rises in the east. I wonder, is today the day when Christ will come calling? Does it matter? Not really, as He will come when He’s ready. But, in the meantime, my job comes first. As it is written, a man shall take a bride, and she shall be his for eternity. To honor and love…. I close my eyes and can feel the warmth. Lovin’ life, my boots remain ready.
