too tired2.jpgIt seems that this is how we have all been feeling this week in my family. We have been tired. It doesn’t seem possible after the girls had a four-day weekend with a cold day (instead of a snow day on Friday . . . don’t even get me started) and this being a short week due to the MLK holiday. So why are we tired?

My two cents is that these short weeks get us off of our normal rhythms of life. That inhale and exhale pace that our lives seem to need and year for. Perhaps we had a little too much inhaling and not enough exhaling this weekend. Perhaps life starting back last week just caught us off guard and our souls weren’t ready for the regular rigors of work, school, church. Who knows? But what I do know is that we all were dragging our feet this morning and NOT wanting to get out of bed. The girls made it to the bus stop with just 2 seconds to spare, I barely made it to class on time, and who knows how Amy’s day is going so far. I do know that it will be an early night for me tonight.

As I take just a few moments to breathe and read this, I keep having to come back to Isaiah 40, “Those who wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength. . . They shall run and not grow weary. . . They shall walk and not fail . . . “

So I have been leaning on that passage today when I have a moment to breathe while I simply wait. . .
