In the middle of your hurry, things didn’t go just right. An unexpected disaster interrupted your agenda. An unpredicted surprise blocked the streets of your scheduled adventure. An illness, the weather, an accident, the economy, a sick child, an unpleasant call, a rude response, a flat tire, a painful memory, a day when things just didn’t go right.
Today, set an appointment with a place of rest.
Take a nap.
Pause. Just a moment.
To remember what matters most.
To remember yourself and your God.
To remember your children need you healthy, not as a driven perfectionist.
To remember that a little bit of rest can give you many more days of wonder.
