Loving Nothing

I am sitting in a parking lot 4 hours from home to connect to the internet so I can post this week to The Joy Diet. I loved week 1 ! The assignment was to do nothing, think nothing, totally relax and see what happens. I used to do this all the time as part of my daily time I spend with God, but had drifted away from just enjoying being with Him and myself. The first day I had to make myself be still, but after that it was a joy. I'm not saying I spent 15 minutes each day, but when I did it was amazing. I wrote in my journal several images and words that meant so much to me, things I am going to ponder in my heart.
Here is my vision card. I didn't have anything special in mind this week- NOTHING actually:) Last week I looked at my VC every day and it really fit my week.
Can't wait to read the next chapter.
Here's a verse i love that fits this week. Please don't turn me off because of the God thing, but I am bubbling over and had to be me. Oh, the verse....Be still and know that I am God or Let be and be still...

Isn't it lovely to get back to something that you used to do all the time, that you made time for in your day? It's easy to get off track and abandon some of the things that have given us pleasure as other tasks, responsibilities, obligations begin to fill that slot.

Love your vision card!!

Looking forward to traveling through truth with you this week.

Your vision card is lovely. We find what is special/holy/spiritual to ourselves and the joy it brings. Through it we may find peace and a little NOTHING! :D
