- Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trail, for when he has stood the test he will receive
- the crown of life,
- which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
Whatever the trail, I urge you to keep pushing through. The light on the other side is there waiting for you .This weekend we actually were able to take some time to rest- that sounds like banana business I'm sure, but seriously- it was fantastic. We have been trying to have " family" clean up time everyday during the week so no one is left doing chores all weekend. It also helps that every afternoon or evening we have a 4 song dance party pick up. We pick 4 songs, blast the volume and we all clean up till the music stops. When you have kids home- you know how messythings can get. The dance party has saved my sanity!
Sometimes resting is the most spiritual thing you can do. Calming yourself, calming your spirit and just finding peace. I promise, in the midst of chaos, when it seems like there is nothing else, make time to rest. When we are exhausted, we are vulnerable, moody, uncreative and unproductive. Those are not necessarily quality traits I'd like to keep in my back pocket. So, while you're on your 5th cup of coffee this evening or 5th glass of wine ( no judgement here), start thinking ahead now, baby steps, to what you can do to find rest for yourself and for your loved ones this week.
