Ready, Set…

happy sportspeople of different ages preparing to run in forest

My word for 2023 is “Ready!”
Most mornings I add one thing to my list of
whatever it is I am ready for.
Some days I don’t add anything.
Today is one of those days.
I am not ready for anything.
I just want to veg…

Ready, set,

Do you have days like that?
Do you let yourself just rest?
Do you have that privilege?

Cats know how to rest…
Let’s follow their example!

Matthew 11

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Some days we need to stop…
Just rest!

I’m gonna do that today.
You gonna take some time to rest, too?

Love ya,

    Good! I’m glad to hear you are resting today!

  2. Jan, I try and set a “ready” goal…it keeps me motivated. My days are challenging me due to long nights. My goal was “publish!” Publish…create a newsletter (took me 3 days) and put it here on WP, all coupled with appts and household things. You know well, Jan. Ready, set,…live! And love!💛❤️💕

  3. And like you, there are times…like from now until the evening I can do nothing! Just be! 🙏🏻 I’m glad you’re able to just be. You deserve it!

  4. Coffee?

  5. Jan, ‘ready’ is the perfect choice for you, as you are always on the go!!!!

    • Yup, “always on the go” WAS my mantra… but not anymore. I have really heard God telling me, “Slow down. Select. Establish priorities. Don’t try to do everything.” So, I am ready, yes… but not for as many things per day as I used to be! I heard that “Rest” message – and I have taken it to heart. How about you?

  6. Good for you. Take some time for youself. Ready and set…. tomorrow you can go!
