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!
