Friday is the day off for me – I’ve done well @ keeping this time set apart & sacred, not-for-work-stuff, even when I’ve been travelling (very hard to do) & during the holidays (when everyone else is home, also tough to do.) It has taken a good chunk of self-discipline & work to keep my ‘sabbath’ day.
Today, the Bean spent the day with friends, shopping, & shuttling – the kids went to school, & stayed home. Putt-putted around. Ate leftover ribs (from T-Gizzle… yes.) Washed clothes. Folded laundry. Loaded & unloaded the dishwasher. Vacuumed (my favorite home task. I love the little lines left in the carpet.) I watched Magnum P.I. Sat quietly in my purple chair, thinking about why Jesus came…
In my ponderings, the phrase “it was for freedom that Christ has set us free” has been running through my head… Freedom is why Jesus came.
I’ll be making some coffee, kicking back on the famed purple chair & pondering some more, this time with my best girl ever with me. Hmmm. Life is good. And beautiful.
