We live in a society that prides itself on being busy. Last week on the Peacefulwife’s blog (wrote this: “I believe one of Satan’s greatest tools against us in Western culture today is to keep us BUSY. If we are so busy working, commuting, shopping, spending time online, doing chores, watching TV,etc… that we don’t have any time left over for God or for our husbands and children and other people – our relationships will be a mess.”
Snow days in the south don’t happen very often. Schools were closed. Even more rare – for two days most businesses and stores were closed. Instead of it being an inconvenience….it became a blessing. We were forced to slow down. We enjoyed each other. We watched movies. We baked a cake. We painted a bedroom. We simply slowed down and removed ourselves from the busy.
It was nice.
“Slow down. Take a deep breath. What’s the hurry? Why wear yourself out? Just what are you after anyway?” Jeremiah 2:25
Be Strong. Act Like Men.
