A relaxful Saturday
I have enjoyed my Saturday. Dwain and I are staying home this weekend. We are both in need of "down time."
Dwain played his Dulcimer almost all day. I did a couple loads of laundry, gave Lucy a haircut, around her face and washed the dishes. Boy do I miss my dishwasher! :-D
By 11:00 I was ready to lay down. I reclined in my chair and checked email and Facebook. By 1:00 I was in bed. I took an hour nap. Lucy woke me because she heard a dog barking outside. I laid back down and slept for another hour. We had a good fish dinner with a salad of carrots, apples and raisins. Also fresh peaches! I read after dinner. "You're Late Again Lord" by Karon Phillips Goodman is an interesting read about how we ask God for things then become impatient while we wait. We forget that we are on God's journey and how to use the waiting time. God always answers us, but it may not be as we anticipate. We must listen when God speaks to us.
Preseason Football has started. We have enjoyed a couple games today.
I didn't sleep well last night. Other than hard cramping in my legs this morning, my Fibromyalgia has enjoyed the slower pace of my day.
I will wait for a more productive day .... on God's timing.
You can ... use your time wisely while you wait for your prayers to be answered.
You can ... give yourself permission to enjoy a relaxful day.
You can ... be patient.
