Sometimes it feels like days do stand still, like I last wrote about so many days ago.
You wait and you wait and you wait and then suddenly, all at once,
You wait and you wait and you wait and then suddenly- what you wait for is underneath your very feet. The decision has been made, the move is here, the job begins, the baby arrives.
Life changes right underneath our feet. We’re on a simple walk, and then we realize there is a burning bush right before us. Just like that, a moment shifts.
There are days that seem to form a pause between the bigness of life, the monotony and the everydayness forming the cadence of our minutes as we wait for what’s next.
And then there are days that just rush right underneath us as we play catch up with the demands of our world.
Right now my days don’t stand still.
I’m trying to regain my footing amidst the sleepless nights, the half-drank cups of coffee because the 2-year-old needs love and the 4-year-old needs play and the coffee just sits, and the baby needs to be fed and the house needs to be packed, and oh- the laundry, and oh- the tired body.
But then I catch this
And I take a breath.
Life is a bit crazy, isn’t it? It seems like we’re always trying to regain our footing from the curveballs tossed our way whether they be large, like a job transition, or small, like the errands that need to be run but just sit, waiting to be checked off.
But despite me feeling a bit threadbare, a bit exhausted, a bit overwhelmed at what the next months hold for us, I do a check in with my heart and I know
It is well with my soul.
And I rediscover some of the joy I had been missing when I was focused on the exhaustion, the needs of these babies of mine, the ever-growing to-do list, the messy house, the transition and the discomfort of the unknown.
And I think that is the gift of these days that don’t stand still. They force us to re-evaluate our vision and what we choose to see in the rush of the moments.
I can choose to sit in the hard
Or I can rediscover and renew and reclaim JOY.
Where do you sit right now? The rush of days? Waiting and everydayness? Would love to hear~
