♥ ♥ ♥ 5 days until Valentine’s Day ♥ ♥ ♥
Awhile back I mentioned that I was convicted about taking a Sabbath – a day of rest. It was a bit tough for me because I’m a doer with check lists. Gotta get stuff done!
Well, for a few months I was doing pretty well. I made plans to get stuff done on the other days so that I could take time to relax, rejuvenate, and connect with God and family. Sunday is more of a service day for Paul and me, so typically we rested on Wednesday, but it was really a good move and I was feeling more rested and balanced in my life.
Then January hit with truckloads of bookkeeping and then the wedding and then the stomach bug. So now I’m taking a forced rest. <sigh>
I have to wonder if I would have had an easier time with this bug if I hadn’t been overworked and generally frazzled. I’m also certain that my relationships slipped because of all the busyness.
Back to my regularly scheduled Sabbath rest.
How about you? Can you create a more restful day once a week?
Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. Ovid
