Happy Friday to you!

This week went by in a flash! I say that every Friday (but it’s true). Let me know how you’re doing in the comment section. I enjoy reading your comments and getting to know you. Before I get into the usual routine, I would like to offer one piece of advice. There are a multitude of blogs, vlogs, social media websites, etc. that vie for your attention on a daily basis. One person will tell you to shop his holiday gift guide. Another person will tell you to travel more. One person will tell you to try her recipe. Another person will tell you to stop eating your favorite food because of its poor nutritional value. We give advice to each other in the spirit of community. Nevertheless, it is vital that you take time to unplug this weekend.

Instead of trying to recreate every meal, D.I.Y project, and look on your pinterest boards, relax. Sometimes, you pressure yourself to complete every activity in a weekend that you saved in your favorites tab during the week. Consequently, fun activities turn into chores. Avoid multi-tasking. Savor the moment. Let your accomplishments come gradually. Do not push your mind, body, and spirit beyond the limit. A healthy person recognizes the value of rest. 

Now it’s time for the weekly recap!

Exodus 16:29 See, for that the Lord hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day. 30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
