A day of rest, who has time for a day of rest?
I was out of town for the last 5 days. Wednesday through Sunday I was at an early childhood conference a couple hours away. I had a hotel room to myself for 4 nights. No kids, no pup, no hubs…it was pretty terrific.
Now, I missed my family like crazy, but you can understand why it sounds awesome. Anyway, I left the hotel about 8:45am yesterday. The weather out here was a mess. Mix of snow, rain and freezing rain. So many cars off the road, with emergency vehicles to help them. The drive home was a slow go, but we made it home safely.
After that drive though, I thought man I wish I had tomorrow off too. I wish I had a day to just sit and relax. You know the whole idea of needing a vacation after your vacation. I wasn’t on a vacation, on a work trip, but the idea is the same.
This morning my devotion in 100 days to brave was “Sabbath” do you work in six days so you can rest on the seventh. Right after I read this devotion, I got the notification that my son’s school is closed today. Due to the crazy weather, there are power outages all over town. So, my day of rest was granted to me. Noah and I are still in our PJs snuggling each other and our puppy. Watching TV and chatting about what happened while I was out of town.
Thank you Jesus for answering the prayer I didn’t even know I had sent up!
Happy Monday Everyone!
