A journey towards greater faith and creativity

Slowed Down

Since New Years I’ve been swamped with e-books and e-courses and similar resources, all geared towards healing and moving on with my life. While I did not choose to participate in all of them, I’ve done enough over the last nearly two and a half months to leave me feeling a little overwhelmed. I’ve learned a whole lot and I’m grateful for the opportunities.

But God knew I needed to slow down. I’ve never been grateful for the common cold before, but this one took me right out of action for at least a week. It took out my husband as well, resulting in a very quiet week of more family time than we’ve had in far too long.

Not to say I was happy about the cold itself. Being stuffed up with a raw throat and cough sucks. But it came with the opportunity to stop and think. To evaluate what I’ve been doing this year and how I’ve been approaching it. To consider what to continue with and what to drop. And a reminder of just why my priorities are what they are. For as clogged as my sinuses were, my mind felt surprisingly clear. Maybe moreso than it’s been in a while.
