Today

“I want it all!”

Parents out there

May remember

The Berenstain Bears.

Years ago,

My kids

Had one of their videos.

That was sister’s theme throughout:

I want it all.

Me, too, Sister.

Me, too.

I’ve begun to de-clutter.

It’s not really “stuff” I want.

I have an amazing family.

I’m not about to trade them in.

Friends…

The best anywhere!

So,

What is this ALL?

I want to truly soar,

Knowing I’m accomplishing

What I was created to do.

I want to draw near

To the One who keeps me airborne.

I want to fulfill His plans and purposes.

And

I want to pursue my every area of interest…

Now,

That’s a tough one…

Especially when I try to do it

All at once.

Eclectic…

That’s the only word to describe

My interests.

So,

Today (and every day)

I need wisdom that overflows.

I will focus on Today

And seek to soar

Where He directs…

In thought,

In word,

In deed.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors (Matthew 6:9-12, NIV).
