in this tornado that is my life…

I'm so thankful for today.  It's Sunday and I'm sitting in my chair in my room listening to nothing but the a/c running. 
We have done nothing but run, run, run all week and I'm thankful to have slowed down today. 
In the last 7 days, we've had 3 soccer games (one 2 1/2 hrs away), 2 practices, 2 meetings, 2 birthday parties, 1 Scout meeting, 1 day of work for me (well, at the site anyhow), a termite inspection, a plethora of tests, purged 3 rooms (for a total of 5 children), rearranged the furniture in one room, switched 2 bedrooms with each other, a youth event, and stuffed almost 2000 information packets with Jojo.  All this in addition to church twice, groceries, CVS, and other places.  And this is the tip of the iceburg. (Of course there was laundry, meal prep, etc but that's hardly worth mentionig, eh?)

It's the picture of life:  I'm sure yours was likely as busy.  But today I'm tired, and it's the first day I've been able to slow down and just be.   It's nice.  I like it 

But if all days were like this it'd be called "lazy."  On this one day, God calls it "rest."  I love Him for that.  It makes the work on the other six days more intentional, and it makes the quiet on this day all the sweeter.
