You may be asking where Lenten Day 4 went. . . well, this little full time student was running about on Saturday like a chicken with her noggin off trying to do school work and the draft of Day 4 never got finished. . .
(All the more reason today’s post is needed.)
And, during Lent, Sunday is not considered part of the Lenten fast – though I still intended to post.
However, yesterday, this tired woman slept big and had a wonderful date evening with my better half (after I finished an assignment that had to be done) – and then fell back out.
(I slept so late yesterday that I was a full day late to online church – I went this morning. How the hay someone is late to online church we’ll never know – but it’s my spiritual gift.) 🙂
Soooo, today, the plan was to hit the ground running, with school work and a bunch of errands that needed to be done – and my body just completely said NO – with a sick episode unlike I’ve had in quite awhile. I’m sure it’s just fatigue and needing some rest – but oh my word. I’m okay now but I’m showered and pj’d and in the bed for the day.
After I got in bed, I started looking through my quiet time things for the day. One of them is this little flipbook that came in the precious Lenten bag our church delivered since we can’t all be together.
Each day’s card has a word or thought on the front and then a little devotional on the back. And today’s word?
Selah. A pause. The word that’s found throughout the Psalms but is kind of a mystery.
It hasn’t been very long since we talked about this even. . .
This week, I have a paper due on Ben Franklin’s Autobiography – so I best get to reading it (luckily it is a short read) and a midterm that looks to be a beast and so much to do on Plato’s Apology that I don’t know where to start. . . and some other stuff and books and whatnot too.
Oh, it will all get done.
But I am thankful for this Lenten reminder to pause and rest in our Heavenly Father.
We all need some quiet time in this difficult season we are all experiencing now,
The verse mentioned in our devotional is Psalm 84:10 – For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside.
Be well, everybody. Take care of yourselves and each other.
Grace and Blessings.
