Welcome back to Faith and Fun Friday!
This week has been… ummm… interesting to say the least.
My birthday was Monday. I was sick as a dog.
I was scheduled to speak the next day so I thought it best to stay home, rest up, and take it easy.
It was one of those “quick bugs” and I was feeling better Tuesday. All went well for the talk, but I’ve found that the same “rest-up-and-take-it-easy” frame of mind has not left me at all.
I’ve been taking it easy all week.
Right this second, I’m looking at two baskets of clothes sitting on my couch. They are both full of clean clothes. My boys have become quite adept at grabbing what they need out of them because their mother won’t put them away.
We have also eaten out three times this week.
My husband hasn’t known whether to scold me for us spending more than we planned or cheer me because he enjoys eating out.
My hair is currently in plats.
This week has been a week of RELEASE.
I don’t think I want to use the word lazy because it’s not like I didn’t do anything.
I just purposely did less.
Sometimes life is like that.
You just have to let things go.
You need time and space to rest your mind, body, and your soul.
And that’s OK.
While we do need to know and recognize the difference between rest and the reckless kind of lazy, I think in our world we tend much more towards the rat race than we do towards rejuvenation.
What do you need to release today?
Where do you need to give yourself a pass, let something go, let someone go?
Let’s pray about it.
What are you holding on to so tightly that you can’t breathe. Is it anger. Is it control. Is it possessions.
There is freedom in letting go.
