I have been rearranging the furniture just to have a change. It's been a pretty good week, though a transition week for us. Ryan's schedule changes monthly and, praise God, he's on a rare day schedule after months of varying night schedules. Which is great but as always the change is a bit discombobulating. (Words are fun.)
Ryan said while I was doing "spring cleaning" I should change the curtains. I did, but was taken aback by him saying that, since I hadn't thought of my cleaning that way. It's August, not spring! But sprucing up the apartment, to transition... It didn't seem entirely the wrong words either, so I didn't contradict him.
I am wrestling with spiritual matters lately. There is a lot of joy here, but it's like something new is being birthed. Something I don't yet understand. I am seeking answers from God, so as He says, I have faith that since I seek, I shall find. But I am in a time of "pondering in my heart."
Let's be grateful in our hearts too!

177- and You do not give a Spirit of fear
178- that You are love
179- and that You flowing in us, as sap bringing life to a branch, birth fruit of kindness, gentleness, love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, and self control
180- and for cold water
