It has been a while. I took my own advice and had to simply slow down. I was feeling very overwhelmed by life with both its beauties and stresses. I found myself trying to balance work, home, church, and writing; all combined it is sometimes too many balls juggling at once. I don’t have children yet, so I can only imagine what an adventure that will be. However, this week, we had multiple blessings and I want to share some of the things we were able to enjoy because we slowed down. Just a little bit.
It was nice just to take a night off from the normal routine. I also have to add that on Friday night, some friends ding-dong ditched us in the best way. They left a bag of candy, popcorn, and a movie for us to enjoy! God’s looking out for us. Or at least, He’s sending his angels in the form of friends to lift us when we’re overloaded. There are so many people that the Lord puts in your life to take care of you when you need it. Sometimes they are close by, ready to literally ring your doorbell or go on a walk. Sometimes they are far and you simply Facetime. Sometimes your best friend above is watching it all. I should really say that He’s watching all the time. Look for His hand and tender mercies in your life. Hope you can find a way to take a break for yourselves this week! Love, S & P
