I PLOPPED into my Prayer Chair this morning.
Are you familiar with “PLOPPING” verses “sitting”.
You may need to be.
PLOPPING makes more of an impact, more of a statement. It is more intentional and has more purpose behind it.
PLOPPING has the purpose of STAYING in the placed plopped for a substantial period of time. At least hours, maybe days!!
I have been “PLOPPING” places for the past 3 days and intend to keep it up for a few more!
On Thursday night, upon arriving home from my last speaking engagement, my 31st this year, I PLOPPED into my bed and snuggled deep into the pillows and down comforter and remained for 12 hours!!
On Friday, I PLOPPED onto a chaise lounge in my backyard with a much awaited book galley I had been trying to get my hands on (more on that later).
After a while, I got up and PLOPPED onto a float in my pool. This is not me (I’m not THAT brain fried!) but it reflects my “plopping” mentality!! I traveled those 5 steps back and forth all day extending the trip only to get water or snacks.
On Saturday, I agreed to move my body long enough to go Blueberry picking with my youngest “G’s” (aka Grand babies).
After a few hours of that, I plopped into a Golf Cart and drove them around while eating Blueberries off the high vines that required no stooping of stretching.
Sunday—Ditto Saturday PLOPS! and I am not done yet!! I am in great need of even more PLOPS.
This has been another busy and exciting year. During the first 5 months, I have already traveled to 7 states and spoken over 31 times.
This mornings Prayer CHAIR time, led me into some deep reflection this morning. I shared my grateful but tired heart with the Lord and He led me into the book of Ecclesiastes. You know the one—-A TIME for this and a TIME for that!!
One phrase I found, over and over was “Chasing the Wind”. Wow, THAT must be exhausting! Maybe it was just my current state of mind that kept my eyes landing on those words.
What does that mean?? Chasing the Wind?? Why would anyone do that? Can you actually “catch” the wind?
Do you sometimes feel as exhausted as that sounds–Chasing the Wind??
How do you know when you have reached your “Chasing” limit and it is time for PLOPPING??
When you do, what do you do to get restored??
I would love to hear from some of my friends.
How and Where do you spend your favorite PLOPPING time? Can I come?
