sabbath // started my day & now wrapping up my day snuggled up under this quilt with some tea. Today I woke up without an agenda. I ended up getting a little bit of work done, but mostly I smiled and laughed and rested within the community around me. Let me encourage you to do this for yourself: actively seek regular rest. It is life-giving.
"Morning. It's morning, everyone! Today's the day! The sun is shining, the tank is clean, and we are gonna get out of...the tank is clean. THE TANK IS CLEAN." - just been channeling my inner Peach from Finding Nemo this morning
When things feel a little bit too heavy, I often find myself on a random dirt road in between two milo fields. I drive a mile or so down the road, park, turn the car off, and then I listen. I lean into what initially sounds like silence...and then I hear it: the grace of the stillness. The peace of the quiet. The healing that floats on the breeze. It is here that I remember the infinite faithfulness of our kind Father. It is here that I surrender control and admit my weariness to my Savior. And he begins to restore my soul once again.
12:04 am. 4 days of insanity. 16 hours of sleep. 32 commentaries/books skimmed. 6,000ish total words written. 1 exhausted senior. 1 pint of gelato (that I'm too tired to eat more than a couple bites of).
