I didn’t take a shower today. Or do any laundry. There are dishes in the sink. My head hurts. Our oldest just went to bed early without dinner and our youngest thinks sleep is overrated. Those of us who were allowed to eat dinner ate the same thing as last night, only not as good.
But in between the not-so-great moments, we got to spend a lovely day outside enjoying the warm weather and sunshine!
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.”
I’m thankful for seasons. Both in weather and in life. They pass quickly.
Today, I am tired and unkempt. But one day, I won’t be and I’ll miss it (really, I will).
Cherish today and look for the sunshine in between.
