I have been a little overwhelmed the past couple days, just being particularly busy and trying to keep my priorities in check. I was very happy that our friend came to be with mom today so I could have some time to myself. And I made sure I did just that. I have learned that I need to be very intentional with any time to myself, or it is too easy to stay busy running errands and doing all the things that need to be done. First I got my haircut. Then I went to one of my favorite places for a short hike. I didn’t push myself, didn’t try to go too far or too fast. Just enjoyed the beautiful sun, air, scenery, and nature around me. On my way back to my car, I passed a picnic area that had a free table in the shade facing the mountain. So, I just sat for a while. The thought that kept coming to me was, “Just Be”. I did. Later in the afternoon, mom and I brought some flowers to my dad’s grave. Then we had ice cream for dinner. As we sat outside, we had a visit from one of the hawks. Once the baby left the nest, I wasn’t sure if we would see them any more. I was glad we did. And I was grateful for the day.
I Found God today intentionally enjoying the day.
