does God read blogs?

Dear God,
it is really cold in Woodford today... I was planning on spending some time in my garden, but each time I step outside the door, my bones ache and my insides shiver. So I race back inside to snuggle in front of the fire that Dutch husband lit for me this morning. It is so cosy. the little girl inside of me cries that she doesn't want to go outside .. not today.
I have this little voice in my head that keeps telling me that I am lazy and should get outside and do some work and that voice is making me feel guilty.

Please tell that voice to go away. I don't like it anymore. I promise that when it is warm, that I will get outside in the garden and work away and I won't complain about the heat (well not much)

with thanks and love, Robyn

Oh Robyn! I love how you write! If God does read blogs, I'm sure there's a smile up in heaven at this post!

It is supposed to be Summer here and I don't think it has been much warmer here than where you are! Hope it gets better for you!

I feel the same way about most of the weather!! Just the gorgeous fall days I like to be outside because, even though we have had cool weather, the mosquito's are really bad and I won't go out just to be eaten!!

Oh I am sure God reads blogs. :) And I can relate to your words. The voice of guilt, may you please go away. Sometimes it is better to sit by the fire. The garden can wait for awhile. xx

I do wish I could send you some of our heat! Believe me....we have plenty to spare!

Absolutely charming, and TRUE!

We have just had the best 4 days of summer ever to happen ... 84, low humidity, sunny blue skies ... and I had the stomach flu. Not sick enough to sleep, but nauseous enough to not want to go out ... and I felt so guilty for "wasting" these gift days ... Can I borrow your prayer? ;)

I have a message for you.

It reads:

Dear Robyn,

Stay warm. Be happy. And leave the rest up to me.

Love, God.
