Tis St. Paddy’s Day and all the world is Irish…
In honor of this feast day, I am sporting the lovely shade of influenza green and completely out of circulation.
The upside of this time out? I am blessed with time to ponder many things. I shall share a few of these musings:
- Illness came upon me swiftly despite hand washing, rest, good food intake, etc. I am reminded once again, of my vulnerability, my mortality, and that life goes on without me trying to orchestrate it. Those are good reminders.
- I again wonder if I need to be engaged in a less wearing vocation.
- Rest is a beautiful gift! It also allows me more intentional prayer time–also a gift.
So while I am sporting a less than fashionable face today, I am wearing the blessings of quiet and recuperation.
And that is fine.
