How are you Watering the Garden of Your Soul?

It's been a crazy two weeks. Aubree was sick, I had a cold, and then Aubree got my cold. I had a hard time focusing and then spent many nights up with my six-year-old, comforting her. Even though I didn't feel great and was exhausted from the late nights, I still had to work, take care of my home, make dinner, and prep for a Soul Care talk. I wanted to take breaks throughout the day but was too busy; I needed to prepare the content and the playlist and write the outline. I was burning the candle at both ends. It was ironic because I was preparing for a talk focusing on Shalom, working well from a place of rest, and not practicing what I was about to preach. 

I knew I needed a break to water the garden of my Soul, so after the event, I went home, hugged, and played with my whinny, still sick child. I put together a Christmas mystery message puzzle, played a competitive game of Uno with my 17-year-old son, and ate a dinner my husband prepared to wish my oldest safe travels because she was leaving the next day to return for college. 

We all have moments when we need to push through, but it is good to be mindful that when the season ends, we don't continue at that pace but pump the breaks to a complete stop and fill up our engines. We all need to renew, refresh, and recharge our Souls for the moments ahead.

I would love to hear from you. What waters the garden of your Soul?

Great topic Heather! It's definitely one not talked about often and one that you just have to try to figure it out on your own, at least for me anyway.
