Thinking about the word Crash -
My first thoughts were to write about the waves crashing into the sea...
And how God would be there as my anchor when they crashed down around me!

Then, I thought about how tired I was.
My life today - now - is so much busier than "back then" when I was working a 40-hour week and trying to fit everything else into the rest of the time.
I "go go go" for as long as I can;
Then, I have to take time to rest and catch up on just being "still"!
Today is one of those days! I have been so busy the past few weeks; going from one thing to another in such a whirl-wind of activity that...
I just didn't know which end was up!
In the past, that crash has been an illness; whether one that would put me in the hospital, or something as simple as a virus or bad allergy or sinus infection that had me down for a few days.
Whatever it may have been, it gave me the opportunity to rest; to catch up on just "being" and get my strength back for whatever the next few weeks would bring.
And, I'll continue to listen to my "body", because those are the indicators that I need to slow down and rest...
I won't quit! I won't stop doing the things I love to do.
I'll just continue to go until that time when I crash and then take the time to rest again; but I'll pay more attention to the indicators!

So, as long as I keep going - I "get back on that bike"...
It won't matter that I crashed because I did get back up and keep going!
My life will continue in this whirl-wind way...
Because I love my life!
