Beauty, Busy and a New View of Time

Good Morning, God!

A Smaller Lighter Life? I think that’s what I want, God. Ah, but old habits and old mindsets are VERY persistent.

It takes Work and Planning to be able to Rest. Hmm. Maybe, it just takes Stopping and Relaxing? There’s a thought!

I have certainly been pursuing the Sabbath as if I had to carefully plan ahead and get everything done BEFORE the Sabbath. Acting as if it were an assignment instead of a great life-changing gift that You want me to have.

The image of turning in Papers at School comes to mind. ATTENTION: You are NOT in school anymore. YES!  That’s RIGHT! Thanks, God!

But, You see, God, I don’t know HOW to REST.  I know how to NAP. I know how to distract myself. I even know how to avoid work. But, I’m pretty sure that IS NOT WHAT YOU MEAN BY SABBATH REST.

Today, I shall go slow. I shall admire Your World, God. I shall enjoy Your People. I shall look for beauty.  And I shall see if I can — for blessed moments, now and then — leave My Time and enter into Your Time. Your Enormously Huge NOW!

Story teller,
