Spending Sabbath at Home
It’s a new day, and I hope that today brings peace, a closer connection to God and your family, and contentment.
I woke up with another pounding headache. I’ve started tracking my headaches recently, and so far I have a headache about 30% of my days. Not good. Most days I can just keep pressing on, occasionally taking something to get through it. But what works for me doesn’t make me feel well, and I try to not take much. This day, however, it was really bad, and building.
I knew I could not sit in church and concentrate. For one, I was extremely groggy. Two, the pain. I just couldn’t think about chatting and trying to be sociable, when all I longed for was a good, comfortable bed!
The boys really wanted to go to church, and we wanted that too! Greg offered to stay home with me. That was fine, but I knew I’d be poor company.
We sent the boys off, and we turned on the ozone maker machine. Trying to purify the mold from the camper from a recent renovation project. We had to leave for 20 mins of purifying, then the air out time of a couple hrs. I honestly didn’t want to pack up my bed, but I did.
We ended up taking a walk in the morning, while the camper aired out. It was a nice walk. I wasn’t good for a lot of talking, but once I was out in the sunshine, I started to enjoy myself.
I ended up following some animal tracks through the woods for a ways. It’s funny how the animal walked carefully over and along logs like a cat would.
We saw a fox running through the woods.
We came back and watched our church on livestream, and I sacked OUT! I didn’t wake up til Greg texted me at 2:30 asking me if I was going to eat! I would have kept on sleeping! I almost felt sick, but I’ve just been getting so many headaches these days!
Greg cooked a wonderful meal! Asparagus was the best! He rarely cooks (like maybe once every ten years-or twenty?) so this was a delight!
After a bit, the temptation was so strong to sleep some more. But it was getting g close to dark, and I sort of wanted to walk a little more.
Sleep or walk? Which would win?
(What would you choose?)
We both decided to take the walk. Just a short one up to the ridge.
Once we got to the first level, we both wanted to climb up the rest of the way!
More animal tracks, a little more snow, and a nice sunset poking through the trees!
It was a nice day!
I did take something for the headache eventually, and we enjoyed the moments of just doing nothing. Sometimes we have to do that!
Sabbath at home turned out to be just what we needed!
