Good Morning, God, This is the Day After the Sabbath — my second Sabbath — and I am eager to WORK. Thankful to stay home and plan. PLAN. Not just DO but plan. Ponder what it is that I want to do. Hey, maybe even what I feel CALLED to do.
And not just DO, but LEARN. Learn as in exercise my brain. Like learn a bit more German . . . something heretofore impossible for me. It feels, God, like THAT kind of year.
Thank You. Thank You for TODAY. This small packet of Time — given to me to WORK in. Six days shall you WORK . . . and maybe, unless we are really WORKING on those six day we can’t fully KEEP the Sabbath. But, I seem to hear You say, BUSY isn’t the same as WORK. Busy, then is neither work nor rest nor play — busy is to work as static is to music. Hmmm. Now there is a thought for me to ponder.
Spaces between. Margins. Pauses. Focus. Emptying. No Pressure. Such small words, God. But so important. Help me to use them to build today.
