I’ve got a few things on my mind and one really big thing on my mind. I’ll get to the big thing on my mind by Thursday. There is a post coming. In the mean time, I have one late Favorite Things Monday. This is more of a Tuesday edition. I’m getting back on the ball.
We are stepping into the end of school and the beginning of summer. Another change of season always feels like some sort of new beginning.
This end of the school year…and an actual relaxing weekend had me quite contemplative. This is what happens when I sleep, folks. I probably need to make that happen more often than it does because when it does, I end up running on more cylinders than usual…
So here I go…
I can write about rest all day long and not take my own advise. I know I need it. I think I am getting it until I realize I’m not.
I can write about time and time management. I like to think I take my own advise and to be honest, I do a lot of the time. I thrive on preparing for the insanity. It’s weird but it’s true. Then I see where I miss it and need to take a moment to regroup.
I can think that a few hours to breathe here and there are enough but that only lasts for so long.
I got to sleep till 8:30am on Saturday and was shocked at how much better I felt. I don’t walk around feeling exhausted or ill. I just plain needed a good night’s sleep. I got it. I recommend it. Maybe I’m the only one that this took by actual surprise.
This weekend was fantastic. Last weekend was just plain special. The last few months have been non-stop for a lot of reasons.
I love that God calls us to be part of His story and different seasons of life are different parts of the story.
But His story means that I need to take what God says about rest and see how that is so much bigger than I realize. To be honest, I’m tired of needing the reminder. I better do two things: Get better about rest and get over needing the reminder.
This life is a whole lot of full and a whole lot of crazy. It doesn’t fall apart if I stop. In fact, the more I stay in my lane and remember who’s in charge, the better off we all are. I’ll get there folks, but for now, I need the reminder and a nap.
