Let's Get Off The Merry-Go-Round
Friday, the end of a beautiful fall week, even if it is the 13th. I plan to go out, examine my flowers, and contemplate what could be done to help them get ready for winter. Notice I said contemplate, not that I plan to actually do any work among the last of the blooms and leaves. And I’m aware that it is in the passive voice.
I’m feeling lazy today, contemplative, reconsidering. I find that it is useful occasionally to get off the merry-go-round and look at my activities. After a busy week with lots of appointments and plans, what did I really get done? Many good things such as made a living, which seems to be very important to my various creditors; enjoyed time with friends, always refreshing to my spirit; spent time in worship which is good for my soul. But some things just didn’t get done. Car needs washed, house needs cleaned, desk needs cleared, activities that can wait until next week. Its nice just to give myself permission to go with flow for the rest of the day and enjoy the blessings God has surrounded me with.
Hope you can do the same.
