[] The Generous Wife tip for Saturday January 24, 2009

Saturday January 24, 2009

     My husband and I are getting ready to run off for our 24th wedding anniversary.  While I'm gone I will run a series I did about self care a year ago. 

      My husband and I have done quite a bit of traveling over the last year.  I think I've seen the airplane safety demonstration a bazillion times.  And while I tend to zone out, there is one part that always stands out to me.  When those oxygen masks drop down, you are supposed to put your own mask on first and then help anyone around you that needs help.
     There is certainly a principle here.  If you take care of yourself, then you have the strength and ability to help others.  If you do not take care of yourself, then your effectiveness is seriously impaired.
      I'm going to take a week or so and talk about the different areas of self care.  It's not selfish.  It's sound wisdom.  God deeply loves each of us and wants us to be blessed and be a blessing.  Let's learn to take care of ourselves so that we can walk with God in this.

      And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'  Matthew 22:39  NKJV

Think generous!  Lori <><
