Psalm 36:5, "Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies." (NIV)
I have been waking up each morning with some grouchiness. I am a hard sleeper and I don't like to wake up early even though I do everyday. One of my favorite things to do is wake up to coffee and a smoke on my back deck. I stare at our swimming pool and wish i was doing laps. I have never gotten up early and just dove in. This is the summer that all of my hearts desires are met- this is the summer of love- this is the summer that God has given me to do all of the things I have ever dreamed of doing!!
This doesn't mean I will go on wild shopping sprees or buy expensive things...it is a bigger treasure than money can buy! It is a cry to create and do, not just sit on my laurels in a chair all day making lists of what I want to do and then watching TV. God has called me to action! He says if I want to dive in the pool in the morning, then I should dive in the pool in the morning. I should not look first for floating spiders, I should just stand on the board, check my form and then raise my arms high above my head and dive! deep into the cool water, it's what i long for. a cool and deep living water...
Oh, and how!
