Daily 5 - Year 3, Day 311

Today's Daily 5:

  1. a quiet afternoon of reflection
  2. hearing God speak unexpectedly into a situation
  3. cuddling and cooing at my favorite little baby boy
  4. a cuddle during some quiet moments of house church from my favorite two year old boy
  5. seeing the way insights pop up when there is obedience
  6. first attempts by my two year old buddy at saying my name (he can echo it pretty well "isa", but when he says it by himself it comes out somewhere between "ha-ta" and "ta-ta")
  7. debriefing a little at the end of the night
  8. friends who support and pray
  9. heart convictions
  10. bread - because I just love the stuff

and again and again

I find that I'm still pondering the necessity of beginning again.

and again.

and again.

and again.


This has been a week of reflection on all the areas that need revival, or new beginnings.

The hard work of creating those beginnings?

I'd rather avoid it.

But the reflection and recognition slowly brings with it conviction.

Compulsion, really.

and so I am readying myself for changes yet again.

for self discipline and even denial of self.

because beginning again

and again

and again

is a necessity to life

almost like breathing.
