Last night I watched a “B & W” and went to bed early. (Derek calls the black and white movies a “B & W.”) I wasn’t physically tired – I was “soul tired.”
I spent over 3 1/2 hours typing out the Babysteps Bible Reading Guide – all 1189 chapters. I went to the eye doctor and did all the other tasks I “should” do. It just didn’t leave time for a project that fed my soul.
I woke up thinking about the Shamrock in my front window. I want to decorate for Easter but Valentine’s decorations are still on the table downstairs. I have to put them all away to start creating. I want to make a wreath and fill my lighted glass block.
When I worked, I dreamed of the day when I could stay home. I loved that job but I just wanted to go home.
1 Kings 11:22, “…’Everything has been just fine,’ said Hadad, ‘but I want to go home.’…” The Message
Now that I don’t have to go anywhere, I fill up my days with work. I stopped working on the projects I’m passionate about. God reminded me decorating for each holiday was the first thing I wanted to do.
Then I realized, there’s a sewing project I want to finish before Easter. The only table large enough to sew on is the kitchen table. It has the best light from the north-facing patio doors. There won’t be room for a centerpiece until I finish this project.
It’s a sunny day. I took down all the Shamrocks. I’m going to sew. I can start creating and decorating tomorrow.
