I hope this past week was a great one for you and that you were able to create some white space and margin to invest in people, the things you do very well, and spend time with the Lord.
I love a nice, restful Sunday so that I can soak up the good. But today actually won’t be all that restful. I’m giving myself some grace on this today. Three pretty big events all got scheduled on the same day, and it’s just one of those days where we will rush to each thing.
But this past week was really great. My laptop was in the shop all week, and that kept my evenings very clear. It was really refreshing to not even have the option to pick it up. That’s some major white space. It felt a lot like a void. That’s kind of sad.
My mom came to visit for a couple of days, and we loved every last second that we had with her. We miss her and Poppie so much.
I watched my boys laugh, fight, wrestle, hug, and generally enjoy being together. There are frequent tears with these two, but I’m loving watching this friendship develop.
We had a fun morning at the zoo with Ellen and her crew.
I had some sweet quiet time to sit and read a big stack of magazines. That happens more easily when your laptop is in the shop.
I spent a lot of time talking to sub-contractors and watching progress on the house. It’s getting closer!
The temperatures finally dropped, and we had a fun afternoon playing in the driveway and the front yard. And the boys wrestled in the leaves.
We pulled Halloween costumes together, and carved a pumpkin together. Really, the boys watched Todd and me carve the pumpkin because it’s pretty gross. But it was fun anyway.
I pray that this next week for you is full of His unending grace, some margin, and intentionality. I’m hoping to finish strong in the last days of Creating White Space.
This is Day 27 of 31 Days of Creating White Space
