as i read this morning:

must I change from ‘I want to please God‘ to ‘I want to be with God?’ Though now that I’ve written that, I think ‘I am with God.‘ Or vice-versa. 😬 Well, then: ‘I want to stay with God and not turn away.’ Although my stomach is often mush and my thoughts astray,

we are in his presence

That may be the one tattoo I should get. Stay in his presence. Remain in the vine.


remember god throughout the day —

before anything. Maybe doing so will bring peace, and eventually that peace will reside in me. Hmmm, and I will be in the bubble. What a wonderful thought! My spirit is suddenly at peace and at ease.
