Who else is with me? I know it's just a season, but I've been through enough crazy busy fourth quarters by now to know that sometimes, I just need to take a step back and sit still for a few minutes.
So that's what I've been trying to do. Each morning, after the girls get on the bus and before I read and study my Bible, I simply sit. Sometimes I pray, but mostly I just soak up the stillness.
And it's been so good for my soul. Maybe it would help you too. If life feels too busy to slow down, just give yourself permission to catch a breath. The world won't stop turning because you stopped doing for 30 minutes, but you may just find that sitting still is exactly what you need to keep on going.
Take care of your soul, first, sweet friend. When you do that, everything else has a way of falling into place. Promise.
