Life has been very hectic lately. I just seem to be overwhelmed by everything. I've been struggling to keep it altogether. Wife, Mother, Full Time Employee, Daughter, Friend, etc..... So many roles to play, and I felt like I was failing at most of them! My head has been spinning and I felt like I could get ahead of all that I needed to do.
I went to a used-book sale fundraiser for my husband's school a couple of weekends ago. Hardbacks were only $1, so I loaded up on children's books for my little man. In the Christian inspiration section, I found a beautiful pink book titled Simple Abundance by Sara Ban Breathnach. I bought it because it had a pretty cover and a lovely name.
When I got home and started to read it....what a wonderful surprise! This book as been my respite for the last couple of weeks. Every day there is a simple devotional to help you center yourself in the Lord's presence, search your heart and find simplicity in the complex.
After about a week and a half after I had started the book, my husband commented on my peacefulness. He said that he has noticed that I have been more relaxed. I attributed it to the perspective that this book has helped me see! I am able to find the authentic person that God made me to be. My eyes have been opened to find beauty in so many moments throughout my day.
It is a wonderful book! I'm so blessed to have found it! If you would like to find some joy and comfort, I recommend Simple Abundance. Hopefully, I will soon find time to start crafting and updating Southern Sawyer!
