Why has it been a long month, what has made me so whipped, what has caused this? Well lets see, at the end of May, my partners and I had to close down our store, during May and June I had to help my sister get her house and yard ready for a graduation party (June 22), the following day of the party I helped clean up, yesterday (June 24) I had a Detroit Tigers game to go to, plus I had to work my normal job and write the blogs, plus work on the STATIC Programming and take care of normal household stuff. So ya I am whipped!
I have enjoyed most of what needed to be done, closing of the store was hard, but we all got through it.
The problem is not all the work, the problem is that I have had no real break, I have taken vacation days from work, but they all where used for STATIC or to help my sister. What I need is time alone, but that isn’t going to happen for sometime… But all is good, I will get my rest, but until then I will go on. My blogs may suffer (now some may say they always have suffered, and that’s fine). Other work may be placed to one side, and my mind my not be as sharp as it is normally, and I my get a little cranky, but I try not to let any of that happen.
I try to still keep up with all that I have to do, I try to keep my mind sharp and my wits about me, and I try to keep in mind that I need to kind to everyone, it’s not there fault that I am whipped, that I have so much on my plate. I try to remember that soon I will rest, that soon, it will all be back to normal.
Jesus even rested, God, in his wisdom, built in to the week one day of rest. But I being of a fallen nature ignore the example of Jesus and the wisdom of God. I take no rest on Sunday and do not follow the example of Jesus and go off to pray and rest. But soon I will.
Rest is on its way, a moment of peace and quiet, time to myself and with God, soon I will rest.
But until then, I will try to remember that I need to slow down and rest.
