Another Friday - a Friday that is leading to a super busy birthday weekend at my home. None-the-less taking five minutes to just let my brain write whatever comes is a welcome excuse to sit down!
Join in on the fun!
The alarm clock goes off and I snuggle in deeper into my cozy bed. I have no desire to get up and start the day. However that alarm does wake up my brain and that darn thing starts lining up all the things that I have to do. Of course the next moment starts the feeling of overwhelming dread. All the more reason to snuggle in deeper.
Alas, the moments of ignoring the alarm are short because the little ones in my house do not yet truly understand the loveliness of a cozy bed - and so starts the race of the day. A million little things start happening the moment my toes touch the wooden floor. My mind has to be sharp, focused on the little things - not to mention not stepping on the million of little cars lying as traps to break a limb on.
As the morning hours pass my brain is exhausted and my body quickly follows.
Then comes nap time for my kiddos... usually I take the time to also grab an extra 30 minutes of sleep. But on the days I open the Book and all my focus to zero in on Him, the energy that seeps back into my body and brain is indescribable. That focus - focus on the Words in front of me and focus on keeping all other thoughts silent for a short period of time - provides more energy that any cup of coffee or 30 minute nap. That focus is life.
