Today it’s just me, myself, and I–alone in my house getting ready to clean, dust, vacuum, water plants and do a little puttering on my computer before taking a walk and then relaxing all evening with a book and some TV.
Ah!!! It feels so good to be off a schedule, to do what I feel like doing and some of what I need and want to do.
Sometimes it’s just really nice to be quiet, to think my thoughts without interruption, to work and play at my leisure, and to allow some time to be mellow.
The older I get the fonder I am of peace, quiet, and time alone. Not that I don’t love and enjoy my family and friends. I sure do! But ‘down time’ allows me to refuel, to ponder, and to pace myself so I can then return to my active life refueled and retooled!
So that’s what I’m up to today as I type this message. How about you? Do you like time at home alone? Or do you prefer to be on the go?
“Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.” (Romans 14:19)
