Yesterday was April 1st. You know, April’s Fool Day…a day I was never fond of. On a site I work and surf on had cyberspace games and pranks going; which just made for a bit of “harmless” frustration for some. All in the spirit of harmless fun. Well…still am not fond of it; because seriously frustration is never harmless in the end. It causes stress and for some, most, frustration is not harmless. In fact I wrote an article the other day about Tips on Dealing with Stress in Positive Ways; over on Helium.com.
So my focus yesterday…and today coincide…as they will likely do for a bit. Seeking God, the Kingdom of God is a lifestyle. While I have been seeking, diligently, for the last 9 or 10 years, I can now say it is my lifestyle. It took training and focus, which requires daily attention each day for that focus to remain. I will admit that if there is a morning when my focus is failing I have been sufficiently fed to hold on. However, ahhh we are such weak creations in our own flesh, much more than that and I, personally, begin to feel seperation anxiety. Much like if my husband were away on business, or more likely a Nascar trek. 🙂
I spent the day, yesterday, feeling disjointed, which I believe is commonplace for someone who is in the midst of personal mourning. The disjoint wasn’t directly connected to my losses, well? O’ I don’t know, anyway…
So I set up some new stations of Praise and Worship on Pandora Radio; and my son replaced my ear phones, that he left in a place that the puppy was able to chew them! So I have neat new, pink pair of skull candy ear buds! Now I can block most everything while I praise God!
As I sit here, trying to wrap this up so that I can get ready to go to God’s house and get some extra work done for an event at the River tomorrow, I realize the focus today is the same as yesterday and the consequential focus of the ladies in my home group, last night.
