I like to cook, but I hardly make the time to cook. I allow the badge of busyness to strip me from things I enjoy doing by either keeping me from having the time or robbing me of energy to do it when there is time. Why do we do that? Why do we allow the never-ending, never-satisfying rat race in life strip us of the simple, satisfying things of life?
This quarantine time has been very good for me. I have had to time to rest, reflect, and question. It’s allowed me the time and the energy to get back to things I enjoy to do, but haven’t had the time to in years. It’s been a simplifying time, a cleansing time, a time of renewal, refreshment, and resurrection as the Lord has addressed some things in my life and been renewing my mind throughout it all.
So today even though I am spending Easter alone at home, I made Easter lunch extra special and the simple joy of listening to worship music while cooking was exactly what I needed as God is once again resurrecting things to bring about true life. On this day and every day, God is really good at being God.
