What are you doing in your evenings?
One thing that I think is so sad in our culture today is how we spend
After long days of working and doing what needs to be done all day long.
Instead of winding down, we get more excited and over stimulated!
We have a culture where we have a motto for some cities;
Such as; where we never sleep!
Why do we have such a need for speed and adrenaline rush.
We were made for working and creating in the day.
But our nights were given to us to stop...
To unwind and to relax
If we are always in overdrive mode, we will become tired,
And we become burned out and find it hard to function.
We have trained ourselves and our children to never really shut off!
It is like everything is in a standby mode...
No rest for the weary...
Keep plodding on no matter how tired or exhausted you might feel!
Personally, I think God had a different plan for us in our evenings...
To stop and reflect and read or talk to our loved ones.
Maybe work on your projects that bring rest and comfort!
Quiet is what brings rest to weary, tired bodies!
We need to find some suggestions for ourselves and our families,
Turning off the television
Reading a classic book as a family story time!
I would love to hear some suggestions from you!
I find myself crocheting a little each night
I also do a small devotion most evenings myself,
I have it right next to my bed!
Having a card table up in an area with a puzzle on it and
Working on it in the evenings is very relaxing and good for the brain?
I hope you will consider this topic for your own lives!
Make your evenings a time to wind-down
Not wind up and over stimulate yourself!
Make a New start for this New Year...
