It's been a really long time. I've recently been motivated (or discouraged) by reading blogs of several of my friends. Discouraged, simply because I am no where near having the writing talent that they each possess. So, I tend to think that I should not just write at all. But today, as I sit and watch the effects of Hanna beat down on my back deck, I felt compelled to post again while all is quiet. It's so unfortunate that a day full of less than stellar weather gives us "permission" to be still and relax. Our Saturdays are always so full of activity- youth events, school stuff, running errands, etc. We feel bad about taking time for ourselves to simply rest... Because heaven forbid, we might not spend our day being productive. We get so busy and so caught up with life that we forget to be intentional about creating some down time to just enjoy life. So, as I'm curled up on the couch in my pajamas at 1 in the afternoon, watching movies, I'm taking a few minutes to thank God for the vastness of his creation and for an afternoon of relaxation!
