TODAY – my theoretical turned hypothetical day-off – I am not:
- plugging in
- engaging in moderator stuff
- thinking about MBCC
- working at my kids’ school
Today is for ME ME ME ME ME ME!
I was in a meeting this week and the devotional question for us was, “What relationships in your life have you been neglecting because of your busyness?”
Get in line.
I am not complaining. I have made my choices and I like the pace I have been at the last few months. I have been able to stay just this side of crazy and it has been incredibly energizing and joy-filled. But . . . the next few months will only intensify as the Moderator journey heats up, MBCC finalizes its facility situation and, oh yeah, the family needs tending 😉 In the midst of it all, I know that the relationship I have neglected the most has been my relationship with God. I used to slip in a movie, tackle a home project, and generally make good use of the flexible pastor schedule. Lately there has not been the easily identified Sabbath moments, so I guess I have to rip some Sabbath time from the claws of the accomplishment monster and rest.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, You have heard this before when I tried to unplug for 24 hours and then tried to justify the way my time is scheduled, but this time it’s for real, at least for this week, God is-a calling and I am-a answering.
So after a movie, some yard work, a little reading and a big ol’ nap – see you on Saturday!
Oh wait, how do I find movie listings again?
