After enjoying a restful recovery day yesterday, I fear that I overdid things slightly today. There’s an important life lesson in here, for sure: Unwisely leaping headlong into a new activity (simply because I am feeling a little better) is not a good move.
Lesson learned! I will be enjoying a peaceful Sabbath tomorrow, where I will be pursuing a day of what I call “active rest”. That is, I actively and intentionally set aside the time in my day to be still and rest, rather than getting busy with the things that occupy my mind for most of the week.
So I’m signing off a bit earlier than usual. I look forward to reconnecting with you all sometime tomorrow!
Dear Lord, I thank You for an enjoyable day. It was another beautiful day in California, and I thank You for giving me the energy to go to church and to volunteer and children’s ministry, as is my custom.
Forgive me for overdoing things a bit: 1) going to the grocery store and lugging two bags of food up the stairs; and 2) carrying my laptop and rolling tote bag up the stairs, on a different trip (same day, though). 😮 These were both unwise and imprudent decisions on my part today, and I promise to make wiser choices in the future, as I reacclimate to my normal routine.
I recognize my limits now, and will be sure to behave accordingly in the future. In Your name I pray, Amen.
