Simply Tuesday: Small-Moment Living in a Fast-Moving World
by Emily P. Freeman
Sometimes life feels small and ordinary. Sometimes our daily tasks seem unimportant and mundane. In this book, Emily P. Freeman celebrates smallness, and encourages embracing the ordinary as extraordinary. She invites readers to slow down and savor the “Tuesday moments”. Small moments that happen on the least important or exciting day of the week. It’s about making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It’s about having a cup of coffee with a friend. Or sitting on a bench with a neighbor.
In our fast paced world, “hurry has won the battle, has occupied the coveted land of my soul…Mainly lots of effort toward the wrong goals do this to me…When I’m performing for my acceptance, burnout is always the result.” It’s so easy to become overwhelmed and feel we aren’t doing enough. We’re not big enough.
Life doesn’t have to be about grand gestures or big important things. Every move, when made with the Spirit, can be impactful no matter how small. Let’s embrace Tuesday. Let’s sit on that bench with a friend. And let’s capture the small moments and make every one of them count.
“What if we stopped asking God for big ways to serve him and started walking with our friend Jesus into the next simple moment in front of us?”
