Do you ever feel like crawling into bed, pulling the covers over your head, and not coming out until next week?
Yup, that’s me.
Since we started school the beginning of the month, and it usually takes me as the teacher several weeks to get back into the flow and feel like I have things together, that automatically makes weekends a bit more challenging. I have known for a long time that this month would be busy and full, but it was all really good things, and I knew I could do it because I had this one weekend here in the middle that was off, with nothing really happening. A time to rest, refresh, rejuvenate, and get myself organized again.
Well, my “weekend off” just took off. It’s not happening. Instead, I will have houseguests Friday night, a workday at church Saturday, and a big birthday party here Saturday night. I still have Sunday off…or at least, as “off” as Sundays get…which isn’t very.
So thank you, Lord, for another busy weekend. And help me to get through it gracefully, please? And to rest…sometime in there?
