It has been a bit of a rough week for me. (You know, I think yesterday’s post started with almost identical words. Sorry. I do know more. Honest.) So. A bit rough. I won’t go into it here. Suffice it to say the week took a lot out of me.
You ever have a week where you just don’t want to get out of bed? For any reason at all. That’s still me. No motivation. At all. So I am making myself go through the routine. Making myself stay busy.
I started this drawing a week or so ago. I don’t really even remember where I was. Maybe at Kali’s. Anyway, I pulled it out last night and shaded parts of it. This morning as I look at it – on this day of worship – I immediately saw a basket at the lower left corner. So not planned. A basket with lots of lovely, fun, hopeful things bursting forth from it. Joy, frivolity (is that spelled right? no little red, sguiggly line so it must be), happiness, playfulness. And I think – why not? This week will be what I make it.
So. I decide right now to make this week a better one than last week. I decide right now to be happy, to be satisfied with my life as it is. But I also decide to strive towards what God has planned for me – and I know that He wants me to be fulfilled and to be serving (cause that’s who I am. I am fulfilled when I am serving.)
How will you live your week? How do you decide – right now – to make this coming week even better than this past one?
