Till He Come

Lately my days are filled with just getting done what HAS to be done.
Inspiration and Creativity have departed for warmer climes.
I so wish I could have gone with them.

Jesus told a parable in Luke 19 about a man giving talents to his servants and telling them to 'occupy till I come'.  Occupy did not mean to sit back idly as the one servant did.  It meant to work, stay busy, do the ordinary life things, make increase, etc.  Just till he came back.

He didn't tell them how long he would be gone.  Neither did Jesus tell us how long till He returns.
But the parable applies.  Occupy 'Till He Come'.  Go about daily life.  Even if it means just getting done the things that are absolutely necessary and nothing extra.  Brighter days will come.

We heard a quote recently at church: 'If all you do in this life is praise God then you have done what you were intended to do'.  So if I can just praise God even in the midst of winter I am doing all that is required.  (along with cooking, laundry, school... just keep praising Him along with all the things that are needful)

Till He Come.  This too shall pass!  He is coming again and heaven will be our reality! That is reason enough to praise Him!

Love the new header...

Sometimes I feel like I hardly keep up with what needs to be done, let alone anything else. And unfortunately, all too often, I forget to just praise, even in the ordinary.

Awesome! Love your header and you pictures, but what you wrote really spoke to me today! I have been feeling totally lazy and not wanting to get anything extra done, and have been feeling guilty for it. But thanks for reminding me of this, I needed it! Have an awesome day! :)
