School is out for the summer, my students are excited. My grad school assignments for the week are completed. I have no appointments today. I’ve already done the grocery shopping for the week. Everything is pretty much done….so I am taking today as my mini vacation. I will blog. I will journal. I will play with the dogs. I will read. I will watch a marathon of X-Files, this evening, with my husband.
I need today.
Time to breathe. Time to ponder. Time to do nothing, but just be still.
How many times have I been guilty of rushing around, finishing things, checking items off my lists, proofreading that paper, meeting with people to the point of exhaustion?
I appreciate these days of doing nothing, which are few and far between. These days turn out to mean everything.
Thank you, Lord……that I can find rest, and peace, and joy in You.
Psalm 62:5 “Yes, my soul, find rest in God: my hope comes from him.” Amen.
