Actually, the first thing I thought when I saw the word “crave” was being pregnant. During each my pregnancies I craved a lot of food: PeiWei, chocolate ice cream, shaved ice, biscuits with fresh berries and whipped cream…
But now? Now I crave a clear schedule. I was talking to one of my friends this week, and she told me that she and her daughter were going to let the breakfast dishes go and just go the park. There wasn’t much on their schedule that day, and they were going to enjoy it.
That’s what I crave. It seems like my schedule is always jam packed. It was a backpack, the top would be halfway zipped, and papers would be fluttering out behind me as I walked.

I do this to myself. I over commit and don’t figure in the time it takes to fulfill those commitments.
During this season of reflection, I want to take the time to really pray about my commitments and to figure out what’s the most important things that I need to do, and to learn to just let the rest go…
I’m participating in Five Minute Friday over on Kate’s blog to give myself a little break from my regular writing on overacup.org. Five Minute Friday is writing for five minutes, one word, no stopping no editing. If you’d like to read more posts on the word for this week , come join us on Kate’s blog. We’d love to have you!
