I’ve heard that old adage numerous times, and I agree with it, but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago, that I was finally struck with why it’s so true. It’s the quiet!!
If like me, you were slow to catch on to the reasoning behind that sage advice, think about it. The shower might be one of the only times you don’t have the world shouting at you — no TV, no music, no people, no social media, no books.
No. other. input.
It’s just you, the hot water, and the quiet.
And suddenly, you can think again.
Life becomes crowded quickly – our minds cluttered, our hearts overwhelmed. Schedules, responsibilities, obligations — and we keep adding to the list!
The more we add, the less rest we find — true in our individual lives, and true within our families. Sporting events, church commitments, work obligations. Extended family, friends, social media. School, work, clubs, and ministry. Our family schedules are bursting at the seams, and we can barely catch our breaths.
I’m writing over at For The Family today — “When You Need to Slow Down: The First Step in Conquering an Over-busy Schedule.”
Guess what?! DaySpring is having a HUGE 1-Day sale TODAY!
