Day 21: Simple Morning

What a morning I am having even before my espresso.

As I was walking down the stairs

I saw someone trying to break into our car, through the window.

In utter panic, I pounded on the window and screamed for my husband.

The person ran away.

My husband ran to me.

Oh how creepy this is

To see someone in my driveway

getting ready to break in.

We are waiting for the police right now.

What are the chances that at that exact moment

I was walking down the steps and was at that window

and the person was at our car's window.

I am a wee bit freaked out right now,

but thankful at the same time

that I saw this happening.

So creepy.

Will FEAR overtake me when I go outside today?

Will I be looking over my shoulder every second waiting for someone to jump out of a bush?

Will I be FEARFUL tonight sitting on our porch at night wondering if someone is watching?

Oh the WHAT IFS of FEAR.

I don't want to be thinking about it, but I know I will.

Oh how something can impact your day

even before you even started it.

I am at a standstill.

As the sun is trying to come up right now

ready to welcome the day

I am disturbed that my quiet morning got interrupted,

but interruptions are opportunities.

I can't wait to see what the opportunity is

but maybe it is for me to pray for this person

who is running through the neighborhood

looking to steal something.

I wonder what he or she is feeling right now.

Maybe relieved that he or she wasn't caught

and has a great story to tell.

I wonder.

GOD you know who it is.

GOD you created this person.

GOD catch this person with your love.

Well, GOOD MORNING to all of you.

I hope your morning isn't as eventful as ours.

Time for my espresso.

"GOOD MORNING" (listen to the song below)
