being still / sometimes

Sometimes life gets busy. And that is how it goes sometimes.

Have you ever scheduled time to just be still? I'm feeling like this might be a new necessity for me. Yesterday I was able to spend some time just in the quietness of our home. Derrick was watching football at the neighbors and I was able to have a little time to myself. It was so refreshing and much-needed.

I love to make a plan and sometimes the plan takes over and I forget to actually take time to be still. And when I say be still, I mean spending time praying, reading the Word, and taking time to just be present. Those few moments were so needed and loved having that time...and planning to do it more!

  1. i am certainly the same way- a planner and super task oriented so being still is not usually on my forever long "to-do" list. Thanks for reminding me!

  2. DEFINITELY a great reminder! Especially with all of the social media surrounding us constantly. I need to be better about intentionally enjoying certain moments and just be more present in them. Wise words, my friend!
