Crazy Pen: Saturday Mornings

Crazy Pen is a series where I will use my creative license to write freely and creatively on random topics. With this series, rules don’t apply.

Enjoy my Freedom. 

Saturday mornings are the absolute best.  I know I can only speak for myself, but I genuinely enjoy waking up to the morning beauty.  Like this morning, I woke up and was grateful for life and for the fact that I didn’t have to work.  My eyes were welcomed by the sun beaming through the blinds.  The light touching my skin giving me the warm notations of daylight.  Those moments are different on Saturdays.  It seems like the sun knows this morning from the others.  I know that may sound a bit extra, but its a beautiful feeling to wake up and not have to process my day and denounce the negativity.  I am free to sleep in and take in the morning joy.

This isn’t the most amazing thing about Saturdays though.  I think the most exciting thing about it is the fact that Sunday follows.  I love attending Sunday service with my church family.  I love the fact that Saturday preps me up for a day of good ole church.  I know that may be a stretch but the weekend is just beautiful to me.  I love the thought of reconnecting my mind to things that I love and enjoy.  The weekdays I devote so much of my efforts to maintaining financial stability that sometimes it causes stress that needs to be healed.  I can honestly say that my weekends are those times for me.  I can spend time in my word or in nature, not worry about Monday, look forward to Sunday, and more.  Even though this may not always be the case because some weekends I have to travel.   No matter where I am or what I do, there is nothing like a Saturday morning sunrise.

I know what you may be thinking, “this girl is so extra.”  Yes, I am very extra and I would even go on to say very dramatic…BUT… I’ve learned over the past several months that what I enjoy is important to me and a reflection to who God created me to be.  Loving Saturday morning displays the beauty of God’s creation.  I am able to see His beauty through my salvation and the grace Christ offered to me.  However, to be clear, I am not saying God didn’t create beauty within the other days of the week.  I am simply showing appreciation for a day that brings me a bit of rest and joy when other days seems to be a bit more challenging.  Think of this as an appreciation blog: My name is Daishu, and I appreciate Saturday Mornings.

Every day of the week God has given me health and strength to work and provide stability to my life.  I am beyond grateful for that because I know it is not by my will or power.  Saturday mornings are just my muse. Shoulder Shrug Emoji.  I’ve always struggled with rest in my life.  I worked a lot.  I participated in community events.  I hung out a lot.  I made a lot of outside commitments to people.  Throughout it all, I can finally appreciate Saturday mornings.  I can feel the sun on my skin.  I can hear the birds in my ear.  I can roll over to get out of bed and thank God that its Saturday, finally.
