I was on the treadmill at the gym a few days ago and the news was on one of the row of TVs they have mounted to the ceiling. The reporters were talking about Ukrainian people going to other countries for safety.
There were scenes of elderly ladies who could barely walk, a pink baby carriage being hoisted above tired arms, and so many downcast faces of despair. It all felt heavy.
So heavy, my first instinct was to turn away, watch another tv showing reruns, or strike up a conversation with my friend.
But this heaviness won’t be ignored. A trip to the gas station or the grocery store remind me…things are heavy AND out of my control.
What can we do with all of this heaviness?
I drive my husband crazy because I will get “inspired” and decide to change the furniture layout of a room (often). Experience has taught me, moving heavy furniture is no fun, even if Jeff helps me.
Sometimes the “flow” of a room can really be improved by moving the furniture (and a little organization). It is one of the top things I do for my clients. Instead of lifting the furniture myself, I use furniture sliders!
Furniture sliders create an easily mobile barrier between the item and the floor. They are placed under the legs or corners of furniture. This reduces the friction that can make it hard to move heavy furniture and decreases the risk of damage to your hardwood, tile, or carpeting.
Jesus offers us a “life slider”:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
