He said to them, ‘Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.’ For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. (Mark 6:31)
As women of the church, we always seem to have our plates full of more than green jello and hot dishes. It seems that we are the ones who get asked to help. We rarely say no to others, but we often say no to ourselves.
Busyness is the enemy of our soul, and we need to stop. It’s okay to set some time aside just for you. Yes, your family needs you. Your animals need you. Your church needs you. The world needs you.
But, you need you to be healthy and refreshed. Don’t wait for free time in your life to make needed renovations. Free time will never happen unless you create it.
