I had a huge list of things to do today. Instead, I came home from church and promptly fell asleep for two hours. 🙂
I think my body really needed a break after everything I have been putting it through in the last few weeks. The marathon training has really kicked up a notch, plus the 5K PR I pushed my body to yesterday. I’ve also been doing a lot of orientation and training at work. It just seems that mentally, physically and even spiritually, I have been drained.
Church today was a great spiritual lift for me. It seems like it has been a long time since I have gone to church on a Sunday with nothing to do except worship. Today was one of those days! I wasn’t working in the Cafe or the Info Desk and there were no special events to help coordinate. I got to church, took Jaden to his class, and then just absorbed the service. I felt like such a ‘taker‘ this week, but I think my soul needed it. I am so grateful for the opportunity. And, DT preached this weekend and did a fantastic job (as per usual). It was a great day to just absorb everything. I feel like God really had me in the right role today: worshiper.
The only problem is that now I have a very long to-do list staring at me, and nowhere near enough time to complete it. I guess I’ll have to prioritize. I had hoped to go to the gym for a weight lifting session, but my body deemed rest much more important. And I’m all for listening to my body!
