Encouragement for Your Week

Happy Monday, friends. The mornings are dark and cold and it’s tempting to stay wrapped in the warm covers. But it’s hard to live life from there. So instead the new week invites us in — ready or not Monday is here.

If you find yourself overwhelmed from the get-go, if anxiety wants to link arms and walk with you, I hope you’ll breathe deep and find a new companion. A kinder, more gentle companion.

I hope you’ll allow grace to sit with you as your prioritize your to-do list. In the midst of the busy, will you be sure to pause? Because pausing is the strongest opponent in the fight against busy. Take moments to notice.

Notice the leaves turned golden and their expression of the beauty of fall.

Notice the giggle of a baby, the laughter of a child, the smile of a teen.

Notice the sun as it peeks through the clouds.

As you pause and take notice I hope you’ll find yourself surprised with fresh perspective.
