I flipped my calendar, and it read, “A leader who does not take advice is not a leader.” (A Kenyan proverb). So true. I needed to take the advice of my body over the past 24 hours or so… and just rest. And in that, I am learning that God shows up in Facebook memories, in really messy craft projects, and in rescheduling things that can wait.
I wonder what other advice I should be listening to (and I encourage you to share it with me – I’m listening!). I wonder what else our bodies are trying to tell us. I wonder how we will continue to support each other in laughter and in challenging times as we continue to Be the Church.
As my Monday continues, I will be flipping among emails, calls, and building forts with a certain child of mine. And I will listen to my body and give thanks that I have the privilege to do so.
