My Sunday Morning Word

 I woke up Saturday morning feeling sensual. I enjoyed the feeling of myself and the anticipation of one day being expressive in that way again – SOON! The kids and I spent the day doing chores and finalizing the day at a soccer game in Livermore that was one of the best games the team has played all season.  Parents on the opposing team sat on the same side as we did and we bonded. We laughed, we clapped, we screamed, we turned over lawn chairs, we stood up, some ran down the sidelines, some jumped up and shouted. We were the assistant coaches to the coach and we were our children’s best and worst friends all wrapped up into one long line of colored lawn and folding chairs, tents, umbrella’s, coolers, blankets and water bottles. The boys kicked, booted, slipped, tripped, fell, cried, laughed, high-fived and scored and like the baby penguin they knew their momma’s and poppa’s high pitched drill sergeant coaching voice – able to distinguish one you go babee from another you go babee. The score was 4 to 7 and our boys lost – however it was a hard fought battle and at the end many mothers had lost their ability to speak above a whisper!! WooooHaaaa!! Oh and might I add the boys were on fire, they were jazzed, they were hyped and they were proud of themselves. They were a team!!!!  Finally.

As all of this excitement was going on, the sun was out and I was still sensual.  It was a good feeling. I wanted to share it.

I wanted to go out on a date with someone who I knew, knew what to do and yet I know I didn’t need to get it done. He never showed up. I was happy. Because I knew.  I showered. I read and relaxed. Thank you Jesus.

The one who knew what to do, texted me in the morning, apologizing because he fell asleep.  He wanted to go out on the date today.  When I went to church later on in the morning, the pastor spoke about the scripture that says your body is a temple, it is not yours it is the Lord’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20. 

That was my Sunday morning word. That is what I needed to hear and it was confirmation that God has my back and my body.
