Slowing Down

Confession: I hate when people talk about how busy they are. I hate even more that I’ve been doing it as of late.

But seriously, we’ve been really busy lately.

We’ve been busy with really great things! We are so excited about the opportunities that God has been providing for us! We feel so blessed everyday. But I’m also feeling a little bit worn out and there are some things I’m missing lately.

Brad starts his first semester of seminary classes tomorrow (yay!), we’re joining a small group at our church in a couple of weeks, and the holidays are looming in the near future.

I’ve been thinking about how full our schedules have been the last few weeks and I begin to feel quite weary when I think about all of the new things that are going to be added.

As I head into this full, joyful season, I’m praying that I will make time for rest when I’m tempted to overload myself, and I’m praying that I will have energy to serve others and God when I am tempted to become selfish with my time.

  1. Amen sister Amen. Your mother used to ask me how I could just sit there and do nothing. She’s gets it now. Glad to see you are too. You have to for the long haul. Remember even the LORD rested.
