Slow Yourself Down

If you don’t slow yourself down life has a way of doing it for you. Even if the timing is bad, rest when you need it. Because when life throws something at you to slow you down the time it happens is always inconvenient.

It’s a Concern

Humans don’t realize how fragile their health can become over time and as we age. It’s concerning when the doctor says “I have your test results.” For a brief second my heart flutters and my stomach leaps. All we can do is what is in our reach to do. Eat better. Move your body. Get… Continue reading It’s a Concern

Goodnight

Day is done and night is here. The moon is bright and the air is cool. Maybe I haven't done everything I wanted to do this day, but I did all I could in the twenty four hours I was given. Do all you can, with what you have and know you did your best.

Rest

There are days when you need to rest. Stop worrying about what needs to be done or about what you should be doing. Simply rest. I know it is not easy but it is often necessary.  “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

My mind falls into the story I hold in my hands. For a few minutes I can forget about the world and spend… Continue reading Books & Sunshine

It’s a New Day

When the chaos of this life causes you to be exhausted and anxious remember tomorrow is a new day. As much as I detest old worn out sentimental expressions, I have to admit this one is a fact.

No Sin in Slowing Down

Go go go...do that thing, then the next then the next...go go go... STOP! There is no productivity in constant motion. There is loss of efficiency in multitasking. Being tired is not anyway to live. Sometimes we have to simply stop. Take a day to do nothing. You know this. Like me you probably say… Continue reading No Sin in Slowing Down
