It was a good thing I did because I don't know what it is about traveling, but it's exhausting and painful.
How can sitting while doing nothing, be exhausting?
I do a better job of prepping for pain in advance of things like travel, never-ending piano recitals, and long movies, but it's not easy. Overthinking is also exhausting!
One of the choices I had to sacrifice though, was not going zip lining with my kids.
I HATE that I can't do things like this (for now), but it was the right decision.
My awesome hubby took the kids and gave me a little time for shopping fun though, so it all worked out in the end.
The Bible says: There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
So I'm determined to think of this time of suffering and affliction as a season - a time of tearing down my body and rebuilding my spirit.
A time to learn the lessons God offers through the trials.
What about you? What season are you in?
