As I look at The Ridge calendar, I see that it also is filling up. There are only so many hours in a day, and days in a month. Getting everything done that we would like to accomplish is quite impossible. Yet, we are willing to put ourselves through the paces. Perhaps if we survive, we can wear it as a badge of honor. In addition, we look so much better in our own eyes when asked, what we have been doing, by rattling off a list of activities rather than simply suggesting we have been a “slug.” The church is guilty of contributing to the breathless pace of life with all of its activities as well.
I believe God made the days shorter and the weather colder this time of year for a reason. We need time to stay home, refresh, renew, and re-create. Being a “slug” at times is not shameful. In fact, it is wise. If we have hopes of great fetes in the future, we must find the time to recharge the batteries in the present.
How sad it is, to race through the days, the weeks, and the years in order to gain the maximum experiences of life, never stopping and being still long enough for those experiences to make you smile!
Prioritize your time but don’t over book yourself. Stay home, do nothing, watch TV, take a nap, listen to music, read a book, be a slug, and get your rest! Remember we have a big day tomorrow!
