My husband is gone with the four olders, the littles are down for a nap for a couple of hours and it’s almost 60 degrees outside. You’d think I’d be itching to get outside and have some fun but I’m not. I have treasured this winter… treasured my time with the Lord, feeling close to Him, hearing and learning little things from Him, reading the Bible and contemplating many things in prayers and thoughts throughout the days. How can I get excited to leave that? I have lots of weight to lose again, lots of days ahead to walk to get my health back, but I don’t look forward to it right now. It takes a lot of thought away from the things of God when I put it on losing weight, nutrition, etc…. I know I need to do it for many health reasons but I am not ready to say goodbye to a wonderful winter I had with the Lord, our family and new baby. Dieting puts a lot of focus on self and to tell you the truth, I am feeling a sense of loss and sadness to leave this season of winter behind me right now. So… I guess I will have to pray about losing weight as I did before; when to eat and what to eat. I can pray while I go for my walk in the morning and afternoon as He knows how I desire to still be so near Him. I am hoping to start Monday or Tuesday. I just thought I’d share my thoughts… maybe I can enter into an even deeper place with the Lord this next season. I hope so. : )
Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
