Happy Sunday!

Good morning! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!

Heceta Head Lighthouse, Oregon Coast.

My husband and I have been reading "Our Daily Bread" each day together. Just thought I'd share today's devotional with you.

'Daniel...knelt down to his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God.' Daniel 6:10

Have you ever wondered why a pigeon walks so funny? It's so that it can see where it's going. Because a pigeon's eyes can't focus as it moves, the bird actually has to bring its head to a complete stop between steps in order to refocus. So it proceeds clumsily - head forward, stop, head back, stop.
In our spiritual walk with the Lord, we have the same problem as the pigeon: We have a hard time seeing while we are on the go. We need to stop between steps - to refocus on the Word and the will of God. That's not to say we have to pray and meditate about every little decision in life. But certainly our walk with the Lord needs to have built into it a pattern of stops that enable us to see more clearly before moving on. - Our Daily Bread

Sometimes, I forget to stop and refocus. This is a great reminder for me!

We have church today and then will be spending time at home catching up on laundry and other housework! I had to work yesterday, so today will be my only day to get caught up.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
