I was home from work sick yesterday and really didn’t feel like doing anything. I hate those days because it makes me feel even worse that there are things needing to be done that aren’t getting done.
I don’t know about you but I have a very hard time taking time for ME. Especially when I can see so many things needing to be done. I have come to the conclusion in the past couple of years though that it is a wise thing to listen to our bodies when it’s telling us we need to rest and rejuvenate. I’ve also discovered that if you don’t listen and do so on your own God will do it for you and make it so you just plain can’t function so you will slow down and do what he’s been trying to get you to do.
Yesterday was one of those days for me. I had been up and down all night and still didn’t feel good when it came time to get up for work. I text everyone and let them know I wouldn’t be in. I finally was able to get to sleep and slept for a couple of hours. I finally decided to get up and make myself a pot of tea. Well it hit me I’ve been wanting to start making video’s on the teas that I sell and since I’m making a full pot this would be a good time to start.
I grabbed my camera (phone) propped it up ready to go got my tea and my teapot, set the water to heating and a video was born. It didn’t take much effort which was a good thing! It didn’t turn out the best, since I forgot that when you turn the video on it automatically for some reason zooms in just a little and I had it too close to my teapot so it was closer up than what I was wanting. I also was having a voice problem but it was me and a day in my life like I’m sure we all have at times. The one thing I liked about this video was that you can show not only how to still be productive when you’re sick and don’t feel like it, but that we are all human and have those days just like everyone else. It’s nothing to be upset about and we don’t need to cut ourselves down for not being able to do what we THINK we should be doing. I have learned to take these days and make them into positive days and days to spend extra time communicating and conversing with God.

Makes me think that if we took time more often for communicating and conversing with God, maybe he wouldn’t stop us in our tracks like that to get us to slow down and do what we should of in the first place.
How many of you have ever had similar thoughts?
