Hurry. Faster. I have to. I want... These are things that run through my head, especially now. Now that I am in the throws of this clothing company-designs, production, ordering, people, businesses, social media. Wait, People! Ahhh yes! The very reason why the Lord asked me to do this. Others. Its not about me. My rushing, my intense state of being, my have to do it now mode. It's about the people, families, women he loves that he gently asked me to be obedient. I said Yes and I am running. This can be a good thing, but I really feel in my heart that I need to simplify/ slow down.
As I was writing this last night our power went out. Nothing was saved. I knew I would have to wake up in the morning and do this and I started to get upset until I realized God was teaching me what I was actually writing about, yet again. So I lit some candles, sat with my daughter in the rocking chair and rested my weary head. Its the simple things. The other stuff will get done. God is in control.
This weekend as you are catching up from the week and preparing for a new one I pray you slow down just a little (even for a moment) to realize the important things in life. People!
