...I'm going to pursue some badly needed peace.
I'm not taking a life-long stand. I'm not making any big promises to do anything, be anything, or change my lifestyle. I've failed too many times to think I'm going to change my life simply by making an oath.
So just for today, I'm going to turn off the TV. I'm going to turn off the radio in the car. I'm going to find some silence. I think it would be good for me.
And just for today, I will limit my computer/email/blogging time so that I can enjoy the life that is happening just beyond this blue screen.
Since I'm not making any big promises, I think I will eat a piece of fruit today. I've got some apples that have been in my fridge since forever and today seems like a good day to eat one.
After I've eaten my apple, or maybe while I'm eating my apple, I might do a few leg lifts. But just for today. I probably won't do it tomorrow.
And since this is only one day, I'd like to spend a little time reading my Bible. I've tried to make a habit of in-depth reading and of course, failed again. So, for today only, I will read maybe 15 minutes or so. I might even write down a verse that pops out at me.
And while I'm not making any big promises, today would be a good day to go ahead and let God take care of some of that stuff that's been bothering me. I'll let it all go for today and see how I feel about it tomorrow.
I'm not very good at making long-term commitments. It seems like I just simply forget that I've made them until one day I realize I'm still in my same old rut.
But for just one day, I think I can do it. I'm not going to worry about tomorrow's decisions until tomorrow. I'm going to focus on today, and do the best I can with what I've got.
I could use a Company Girl. Wanna join me?
Tell me what you're going to do, just for today. It will be waaaay more fun to do it together!
