Anyone know how it feels to have a hot cup of tea in your hands on a cold winter day? How therapeutic it is just to close your eyes, lean over the cup and let the warm steam waft by your face?
I do. And I consider it a small piece of heaven on some days. Like today.
The house is messy, we have mail that needs mailed, Christmas boxes are clogging up our living room, we JUST got out of our PJ's two hours ago, we have nothing defrosted for dinner or for lunch the next two days, wet laundry in the washer and dry laundry in the dryer, full dishwasher already filled with soap.
The house is nothing that we haven't created and are aware of. We are just not motivated today!
And on those days, at the end of them, we are usually wracked with crabbiness and guilt for having not been productive. But you know what? We've been going for a while now. Sometimes, it's ok to rest and relax. Spend time with Jesus. Read a book. Make a hair appointment. Stay in your PJ's all day. Sometimes it's good and when it's not, grace abounds.
"Who is He that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died - more than that, who was raised to life - is at the right hand of God and it also interceding for us." Romans 8:34
