Getting out of my routine – and recover time

Nieman Marcus at night


Good Morning,God!
I realized last night that I don’t get out much — or should I say, I don’t venture out of my routine. This came to me when I was leaving Morton’s Steak House in the Ala Moana Center. It isn’t that I haven’t been to Ala Moana hundreds of time. But I haven’t been there AT NIGHT.

It was like being in a new place! I looked over at Nieman Marcus and thought it was lovely. Things look different at night.

I suppose, God, that is one of the reasons we travel – to see new things – to see in new ways – to meet new people.

I certainly wouldn’t have gone to Mortons without having gone with my dear friend, Martha Lee. Ah, now I am smiling as I remember: once Kit got home from work he didn’t want to go back into Town. He didn’t even want to go toward Town.

Which brings up the point that NEW requires more of us. Hmm. We have Energy and Time for NEW when we travel. When we are immersed in Daily Life — NEW can seem more of a burden as it exceeds our “budget.”

Hmm. Could it be (I’m so SLOW, sometimes!) that You command us to REST from Work on the Sabbath Day so that You can Balance our Budget? Not just balance our budget but RESTORE US — POUR IN YOUR RESERVES, as it were.

I confess, God, I don’t think I have taken a WHOLE DAY OFF FROM WORKING (I’ll do just this little bit, I tell myself) when I am home. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE! I can’t afford to overspend. Please, God, help me to PLAN and use BOTH my lovely RIGHT BRAIN — and my SCARY LEFT BRAIN — to work TOGETHER to redesign my life!

Story teller,
