“Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.”
- 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
This will be the verse I am meditating upon this week, for despite the fact that my husband had a spring break, I ended the week feeling fairly exhausted and disorganized. It can be a tricky thing when you are on a stay-cation instead of going somewhere else, because it’s all too easy to let housework and a regular routine slide because you think that you are on vacation.
But there is no room service or maid service to lean on, and there are still three little hungry and mischievous boys who will find something to do or eat if you don’t find it for them. Hence the little piles and projects occupying almost every room in our house right now.
I am hoping this week to revel in the mundane, to “mind my own business” and do the things in front of me that aren’t all that glamorous, but in the end, make a far bigger impact on my daily life than vacations do.
Have a great week!
