Aaah, Sunday morning. There is nothing better.
I’m getting ready to wake the boys up to get ready for church, but for now, I wanted to write to you. :)
I kind of gave myself a “vacation” this past week. The thing about being a blogger is that you are never really “off.” It is a job that can literally go 24/7, 365 (if you let it.)
I only posted one time last week, and to be truthful, I worried about it. But the bottom line was that I needed a “rest” from my blog.
It didn’t mean that I wasn’t working….I just wasn’t working as much on my blog. And I needed that break so much. I’m at an important stage of my life where I am trying to listen to the Lord and follow HIS plans for my life. I have a yearning desire to simply my life, focus on what matters most, and get things in order around here.
So I had to take a break.
I made dinner four out of the five school nights! That is a record in these parts. I laid on a blanket under a shade tree in our back yard and took a little nap. I snuggled with my honey and watched a movie (without a computer on my lap!) I ate lunch with Dad and Janet, got a pedicure, and spent time reading a book. Y’all, that is NOT my normal type of week, but it felt SO good.
I worked a lot this past week, but I worked on cooking meals, cleaning the house, organizing my office, and trying to be more disciplined. Remember my post about being more disciplined? Well, I am doing a good job so far. Yay! I’ve made changes in my eating habits, been using my planner more, and been spending time with the Lord. It feels so good.
When I spend time with the Lord, my heart is at REST. And in a world that is full of chaos, REST feels really good.
Y’all, life is not easy. We need rest. We need to be re-feuled each day to be able to face what comes our way. It is my heart’s greatest prayer that you would know the love and peace of Jesus Christ. I am praying for you this week. Praying that you will know that you are loved by the God of this universe. Praying that you will find time this week to sit in His presence and soak up His word and His promises. Seek Him and you will find Him.
May it be well with your soul.
Do me a favor, start today by watching this video. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and REST in Him. Love you guys so much!!!!
