Why bother?

Do you ever feel like no matter how badly you need it, you just can’t get a break?
I need a break. I’m breaking. I really am. I feel myself shattering from the top of my head down to my toes. I need to submerge myself in water and have a good long think… do you ever do that? just sit at the bottom of a pool, listening to the silence? Or wander through the woods with no destination in mind? I used to.  I think I just need some ‘me’ time. Some nice silent me time… Completely alone, and NOT at home. I need to drown myself in conversation with God. In those silent times is when I hear Him, when I feel His presence. When I come out of those times I feel like I can do anything!! (With His help of course).
Sigh.

  1. You know how God told us to take a Sabbath? Most people don’t think this applies to young mothers. I know it’s impossible to get away from it all for an entire day, but you need to schedule in at least a small, non-negotiable weekly reprieve for yourself. You have to do it, no one will do it for you, and it will be hard, but you need to be firm about establishing this priority in your life.
    If you don’t, you will crash and burn. It will revive you spiritually, emotionally. God designed it that way. I learned this the hard way. Take my advice, girl.
    Hugs! Hope you feel better soon. It was nice to see you on Sunday. Your family is so beautiful.
