urggghhhh! I am sick of it already. The wind is really howling outside and snow is blowing all over the place. A great day to sit down next to the fireplace, read the paper, and blog.
I am especially grateful these days for what God is doing in my kids. All are serving the Lord Jesus in one capacity or another. I am really proud that they work hard, prioritize education, and serve others. They are great kids!
I keep telling myself I am going to slow down. It doesn't seem that is happening. I really need to... the pace is starting to affect my attitude. (One lady was horrified to see me working on three computers at the same time - a trick that not many can do!- That is what made me think of slowing down) Not exactly sure how to do that. Maybe a Tuesday off every couple weeks or so to do some fishing or to work the beehives. (when I get them going this spring I'll post a video!)I dream of walking the woods, getting the boat out on the lake, shooting my bow, etc when the weather breaks.
Although I hate the snow, I can appreciate the mandatory slowdown of my pace. I guess that maybe the dormancy of this season that we see in the trees and shrubs is there to remind us that we can affford a little dormancy ourselves. Like the Word says... Come unto me and I will give you rest for your souls.... I think I'll go take a nap!
