There is a book called Boundaries.  I've heard great things about it. I own it.  Never read it.  I don't want someone to tell me I have to say 'No'.  LOL

My new cabinet
I've decided to cut back on a few things and even though I am sorry I had to, and had to say no to a few things, I am not sorry.  I spent last night putting together my new cabinet, putting things away, cleaning up the house, shining the hard wood floors with cabinet magic.  I took books off my book shelf for some new loves of mine.  

This morning I got up, feeling well, refreshed. Feeling accomplished and not stressed out. My normal cruising speed is 100mph but lately it's been 150mph and I need a pit stop.  

Today I will make banana bread, dinner for some peeps, relax, maybe rent a movie, clean my office, I have a new picture coming for the walls.  I'm dreaming of taking a long weekend vacation.  Getting things organized for my trips.  What I need to buy, what I already have... does anyone have one of those vacuum sealers for clothes? I'd like to vacuum seal my clothes for Haiti (really, it's true, I want to) it's damp and I can get more in my suitcase LOL!

One of my favorite places to be is Eastern Market on a Saturday... and so I will stop there today as well and pick up some yummy vegetation.  I can't wait.  My soul opens a little more when I am there.  That probably makes no sense to anyone but me!

It's going to be a quiet (for me) restful day.  It seems the louder the world is the more restless I become.  

shhhh... can you hear that?

Isa 32:17 The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever

I like this song, though I've never heard of it before. It's nice. Thanks for sharing it.

I have read that Boundaries book before. I can't remember everything they wrote, but I do remember it saying alot about setting up boundaries in your life. Which means sometimes you have to say "no". There's nothing wrong with "no", especially if it means you are preserving your mental health and well being. :D

And I know what you mean about quiet. I've stopped watching alot of television lately. Even stopped watching alot of christian programs as well. I used to have it on for background noise. (And sometimes to shut out my own feelings on things that have happened to me in a day or a week). But lately, it's just been nice and quiet. TV free. And it's nice. And I can hear God more. Which is a good thing.

Sorry for the long comment. Hope you have a great rest of the day.
