Saturday Happenings

Things have been slow around here today. I always enjoy the slow days. Oh, don't get me wrong, there are plenty of things that we could be doing today. It just seems that every time I go to start something I get distracted today. I find myself just puttering around instead of really being that go getter that accomplishes many tasks. After Michael's vacation, I realized that I had enjoyed the slower paced days. I still got many things accomplished, but I wasn't racing against a clock. There are days that I feel like I am behind as soon as my feet hit the floor at 6:00a.m. I am reminded of the scripture in Psalm 90..."teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom".

I want to be a good steward of my time and of my days. I love the phrase "SEIZE THE DAY"! I live by that ideology so days like today can be unsettling for me. I also live by the phrase "Enjoy the Journey". Sometimes these two ideas are in contrast to one another, and I am looking to find the balance between the two. I love the days that I combine these ideas and I seize the day while enjoying the journey.

grace and peace,

What a wonderful post! I can certainly identify with the struggle to check things off a seemingly never ending list of tasks while at the same time slowing down enough to enjoy the journey along the way.

Some of my most fond memories growing up are of sitting on my grandmother's porch awaiting the rain to stop. Maybe that's why I still love when it rains; it's a forced slowdown.

Thanks for sharing!

Joe,

It is nice to know I am not the only one who suffers with this dilema. Thanks for the kind words.

I too love rainy days. They do tend to slow us down a bit.
