I’ve been quiet these days, pondering many thoughts with a schedule full of field trips and homeschooling to-do’s and get to’s. As we began a new week and the week of Thanksgiving, God, in His infinite understanding and kindness is teaching me to take at least one full day of rest each week and more rest throughout the week. This doer kind of girl finds resting incredibly difficult. I always find “one more thing” to do. Just one more thing that leads to a day of unrest. So, God is faithfully teaching me to enjoy this gift of rest.
Life has been throwing curve balls at me and my inner woman has been whiny and my lips may have been pouty more than a few times. I have needed the reminders of His promises lately and I really needed a dose of thanksgiving in the remembrance of His faithfulness. It is always sobering to remember how He has always been present and provided when needed and so much more. He truly is good.
I also needed to be reminded of His hope. My friend Vinae has a lovely blog where she shares about life with her family. She has had her own health struggles that have plagued her for many years yet she is a brave soul who battles fierce with God leading the way. She wrote this article about living life to not only survive but to thrive. I pray it blesses you as it did me. Click here to head over to The Improvising Mom blog.
Blessings to you and yours and may you choose rest in the hustle and bustle of this holiday week.
