Antidote

Today I’m going to give myself the gift of doing “want to do” things rather than “have to do” things. An antidote to a funky afternoon and evening when it seemed the weight was too heavy.

I’ll toss seeds in the ground in my garden, dig in flower pots at home, and make a loose plan.

Maybe I’ll buy flowers.

I’ll put music on in my woman cave and play with watercolours paint.

Create something where there was once nothing.

And perhaps, by the time the day is done, I will have returned to myself.

Word wrangler. Photo taker. I'm here early most mornings with one of my photos and a few words about life and those thin places where faith intersects. Coming Summer 2020: The Presence of Absence: A Story About Busyness, Brokenness, and Being Beloved.
