My Busy Friday
Today was a super busy day. It started off with having to get up early to be on time for doctor appointments, then errands, and then my daughter and I were able to sit down in Chick Fil-A for a late morning treat before heading back home. Last week, I had received an email stating that I had a free eight-piece chicken nugget reward. I couldn't wait to use it. Any what better time to go, since we had to drive right by on the way home.
When we got home, I had about forty-five minutes of in-house cleaning to do, and then I was ready to start checking emails, getting my devotion done, and engage in networking on social media.
Around four o' clock, I decided that I would take a walk to the beach. Four o'clock turned into five o'clock, and then five o'clock turned into 7:15, since I had to sneak in a quick nap for a quick charge. As soon as I left out the door, heading to the beach, I reflected on why I love the early Fall weather. It's really a combination of things: wearing a lightweight jacket or sweatshirt, feeling the cool breeze, the ability to do all kinds of activities outside without sweating like crazy, and the beautiful fall foliage.
As I was approaching the beach, I realized that I'd forgotten the three books that I was planning on donating to the Train Station Library. What also caught my eyes were the beautiful colors in the sky. I thought to myself, "Well, I guess I missed the sunset." Quite the contrary. As soon as I turned the corner, I could see the beautiful rays of color. It had been a while since I had caught such a dramatic sunset. I also felt blessed to be able to get a few pictures in. No camera can do God's handiwork justice.
Lord willing, tomorrow I plan on getting a couple of Pureflix/Netflix movies in, do a little writing, and catch up on calling family and friends. What does your simple, functional, grace-filled weekend look like?
Have a blessed night!
