You can’t pour water from an empty bucket! Fill it up!

Time for a break
I’m taking a hiatus for a few days. I will come back a renewed and excited blogger, a better teacher, and a better mother.

This is a tough time of year. Remember that:

“You can’t pour water out of an empty bucket.”
Quote: me!

Refill your bucket by taking time for yourself. Smelling the flowers. Enjoying the scenery. Reading a book. Taking a run! Doing something non work related. This is about living life not just about how many things you cross off your list!

You won’t remember if you missed a few days posting your blog. Your child will remember if you never have time to watch their game. Or if every time you showed up, you spent it talking on your cell or texting. Take time to actually BE with your family. Mind, body, attention, focus. Family and friends are important!

God has a plan and a purpose for us!

“In moods of discouragement or despair,
never forget that the sunshine will ultimately come back,
that it’s absence never is permanent.
Hang onto your faith, knowing that soon
you will rise into the sunshine again.”
~Norman Vincent Peale~

” I have been driven many times to my knees by the
overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go.
My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed
insufficient for the day.”
Abraham Lincoln

James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Do not be frustrated. Rest in the Lord today. Take a moment right now and close your eyes and breathe deeply. Feel yourself relaxing from your toes to the top of your head. Then, take a moment to thank God for just one thing that just happened.

Remember, there is a purpose and a plan for you. Be encouraged. Take time. You are great! Thank you for taking time to read. I hope you are encouraged.

Lord, guide and keep us. Encourage us and keep us strong. Let us take time for what is important and discern the things we should remove our focus from. Let us be your light in a world gone crazy. In Jesus name. Amen.
