In yesterday’s Hodgepodge post, Question #7 asked about something that we need to tell ourselves at the beginning of this new year.
My one word answer was RELAX.
It was an interesting word choice but one that had come immediately to mind as soon as I read the question.
I had a dentist appointment first thing yesterday morning, and as soon as I sat down in the waiting room (mind you that I get very nervous when I go to the dentist), I saw the following sign…
People think I’m weird enough as it is.
But there it was…right in front of me…that one word…
I really felt that God was speaking to me.
He knows my anxious heart…the way I’m fretting over a class I’m taking…the to-do list i cannot seem to make a dent in..,even the sad feelings that are beginning to creep in as the days draw nearer for my babies to return to college.
It’s not something I’m good at.
I’m constantly multi-tasking and cannot even seem to watch a television show without working on some other project, usually school-related.
I need to buy the shirt.
I have a feeling I’ll be coming across this word quite often this year.
When I do, I’ll smile in the knowledge that my Heavenly Father sees into my inmost being, loves me despite my many, many faults, and has provided this word of wisdom to soothe my weary soul.
