Glorious Staycation

Today, I took the day off.  Just to be.  To rest.  To spend time in the Word.  To get organized.  To love on my pup.  He enjoyed napping in the sun.

I have been on the road so much this year that I can't even tell you how many miles I've put on my car.  Every weekend it's something.  A friend's wedding, an engagement party, a family gathering, a visit to a friend that I haven't seen in a while.  All wonderful, blessed events. 

But, I'm tired.  Exhausted, really.  My car is falling a part.  It needs to rest, too. :-)

So, today I stayed home, and I have had the most excellent day so far.  I have been organizing my guest bedroom closet that houses all my crafty things, and I even pulled out some things so that I could be creative today. 

This morning, I was praying and just asking God for answers about some decisions I need to make in the near future.  And, over and over, He spoke to my heart and said, "Seek!" I read Jeremiah 29:13 several times and let it sink into my heart.  "You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart."

I wanted to create myself a little reminder of what God spoke to me this morning to take and put on my desk at work.  I got out the paints and canvases and paint pens.  Here is the final product: 

The rest of the day promises more productivity, rest, chips and salsa for dinner and the What Not to Wear season premier.  I love the occasional day off!
