There is Sunshine in my Soul Today

Mom shared something with me today that struck me. I don't think she would mind my blabbing about it for a minute.

She said

Remember the story of the woman who poured precious oil on Jesus's feet and washed his feet with her hair? The other men scoffed at her, but Jesus was blessed by her love.



I'm ashamed to admit that sometimes, a relationship with the Lord feels one-sided (I don't spend enough time *listening*). It's amazing to think things *I* do can have an impact on the heart of God.

Wow? Wow.

It has been a season of dimness for me. Today, I spent a few hours wandering around Ikea looking at organizational systems and funky fabric through a veil of teary eyes. I feel like I lost a good friend today. So, maybe some of my almost-tears were warranted, but Yuck! It's time to wipe my eyes and move on!

How have I spent years declaring that God is the most important piece of my life without ever thinking about his FEELINGS in this way??

I move (finally!) at the end of this week, and I'm sad for the time I'll miss with my long-time roommate, but I'm really excited to start fresh. I hope this new season is one of looking o.u.t.w.a.r.d. :)
