And the body says stop....

So, this morning I awoke nauseous...it was reminiscent of the first days of pregnancy. I had a little meeting with John and all his porcelin glory. Ugh. But, then I realized, my body was saying stop. I cannot go any further until you allow me a day of rest, a day of sleep, a day to recover from the constant go-go-go life you've been leading.

So, I am letting my body have its way and thankful my husband is home to watch the ninjacita. I have been reading a book called, "Having a Mary heart in a Martha world," and one of the things that is striking the greatest cord in my life is that there are millions upon millions of needs in this world, but God does not call us to help them all. Looking at the story of Martha and Mary, Christ only had 1 thing for busy Martha to do, which was to be with him that day. Each day, we should strive to complete that 1 thing admist our to do lists and our schedules that God is calling us to do. And today, He is calling me to rest. Tomorrow, it will be something different perhaps.

Here's to seeking to find that one thing each day....

Until next time...
