One of my prayers during this pandemic is that my life doesn’t just “go back to normal.” My normal wasn’t working. My normal was too fast.
I need a new normal.
During a church small group Zoom call a few nights ago, we all discussed what pandemic practices we want to spill over into our post-pandemic worlds.
I want more nights of dinner at the table with my husband and movies on the couch. I want slow mornings with God and evening walks in my neighborhood. I want less “go go go,” and way more “slow slow slow.”
My soul needs it desperately.
