“AUGHH!! JUST STOP!” I roared as I clambered out of bed.
I’m beginning to wonder as I watch snow flakes flitter through the supposed spring skies if God should memo his angels to change their shampoo…..seems like they have a bit TOO much dandruff/white stuff they are shaking down – even the lower 48! I got a photo from a friend in Iowa today with what looks like a flocked Christmas tree without lights and snow all around -geesh!!
But these are the days that maybe, just maybe, God is asking us to slow down…..grab some hot cocoa….give yourself permission to watch some re-runs or cartoons on TV or pick up that book you have been meaning to read (which is what I did!). Or just be still and watch the snow flitter, the rain drizzle down the pane or the heat waves on the pavement.
If it’s not snow for you, maybe it’s a dreary rainy day, or one too much of sun (can that EVER be possible??!! Well, maybe the heat or humidity….I guess!) But whatever the weather…..don’t forget to stop every so often……….and do something different.
Just ‘stop’……it’s ok to do ‘nothing’ once in awhile!! Promise!! (And if you need permission, I’ll give it to you – right now: STOP!!)
