May your weekend be filled with happiness, not the kind that comes from winning on earth but the kind that comes from the secret things of heaven.
May you let go of the comparisons that exhaust you. Remember it takes two to make a race.
If you’re weary of the competition, simply refuse to run.
Choose instead to linger in the morning when the sun begins her rise.
Take a walk around the block just to see what you can find.
Savor the warm mug, the sharp air, the hope of things to come.
Be thankful for the moments you hold in your hands and the people who sit by your side.
But above all else, let the truth of your own belovedness gather in the sacred curves of your soul.
Listen long to the Spirit-whispers of acceptance and know you are made wonderfully well.
Enjoy your weekend, friends.
Are you weary from the race of this week? What is one way you might choose to slow?
