Thankful thoughts this Sabbath day of rest…
A soft blue down duvet and fleece sheets in the cozy quiet of my room all. day. long.
One week after Relevant and my sisters wedding celebration yesterday, and I still haven’t returned to my normal routine. But what really is normal? Tired. Run-down. Sick. Knowing he was returning to work tomorrow my husband gave me the HUGE gift of rest today.
The entire day I spent resting, drinking fluids, recovering. I didn’t step foot down stairs until 7:30… PM! It was amazing and refreshing!
My day consisted of these few things, repeated many times: hot water with Lemon and Thieves and raw honey, reading, Frankensense and PanAway on my throat, napping and meals in bed. With a little blogging and book club brainstorming and email ninja action thrown in.
While I had my Sabbath rest mostly (a few welcome visits from the little ones, of course!) alone my amazing husband packed a picnic lunch for the kids and took them to the local State Park! Although my 4 year old told me he was going to “the DVD park, where you play and then they give you a DVD”…?!??? WHERE does he come up with this stuff?! Cracks me up! (And no, he did not get a DVD from the State Park. But that would be something, wouldn’t it?)
I have no idea how long I napped, but I do know I read an entire book and made a good dent in another and my throat is feeling a million times better!! Thank you sweet David!
