I have all of a sudden found myself in place that I have longed to be. A place of balance…a place of simplicity. My calendar is not overloaded, my commitments are not overwhelming, I am able to say a wonderful little two letter word…”no”. I have felt conviction in regards to simplifying my life for some time now, but at the beginning of this year I felt an urgency like never before. I just got so tired of running ragged!
It has been a slow process but I have begun to guard my time and not fill my days just to fill my days. I have developed this new part of my personality…I have become a little bit of a homebody. I was joking with Galen that it is like I don’t even know myself anymore. ;) I have desperately needed to incorporate exercise into my life and by simplifying in other areas I have been able to do that.
I am just so thankful to the Lord for being faithful to speak to my heart about this…again. I am not saying that I am “cured”…something tells me that busyness is something I will always have to guard against. But I have tasted a little bit of simplicity…and it is so good!
