One Day at a Time

Supper last night was a favorite of my boys...pasta carbonara.

Personally, it makes me gag (is that rude to say?) but every male in my little house loves it...and as if it's not rich enough, they like it with a fried egg on the side.

This morning that guy that I like so much had a rehearsal (he's a conductor and there is a big concert next weekend) which left me at home in a quiet, quiet house full of sleeping boys.

I had one too many cups of coffee and some left-over crumb cake while catching up on all my favorite blogs.


It was a really, really nice Saturday morning.

And this afternoon was nice, too. Spring season basketball is here and my #35 played so well.

I'm proud of him.

We've entered a smooth part of our journey...I guess maybe it's the healing part of our journey. I am learning that we just need to take one day at a time...which is something we already know anyway.

I find it interesting that years and years ago when that guy that I like so much and I were dating...26 years ago to be exact, and together we chose a passage of scripture that we found important to us. Kind of like life verses. Ones that we used in our wedding and that we have referred to over and over and which became more important as we became older.

Matthew 6:25-34

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

So we are continuing on, one day at a time. I'm trying my best to not think of what may come tomorrow, but just living for today.

It's not always easy (I'm human after all) but I'm trying.

I'm a work in progress. And so is my son.

  1. I am guessing you were never in the cast of "Godspell". If not, you really need to see that musical. You would love it.
