Buttery aroma floats from the oven and coffee is perking. On the computer, the Word is coming forth, enhancing the life of the seed within me...what a way to start the morning!
Outside, the sun shines and promises a hot day. My to-do list mentally clicks away while I sing and lift my hands in worship as the Word squeezes the joy from my heart to my eyes, dropping down my cheeks. Never been a shouter, I just sob.
And I think to myself, "Mary, thou are highly favored among women." Only, I put my name in there: "Sharon, thou are highly favored among women." Oh- I know it Lord! The very bride of Christ, me, a nobody, but yet the queen of heaven.
Cake is done baking, coffee is milked up and ready. With a heart overflowing, I head out into what today holds, knowing, like Joshua of old, who the captain of the host is, and that He is for me.
