Pressing Pause

Sitting in my car waiting for a meeting...I am here early today because I have nothing else to do right now. The past few days have been a flurry of meetings and wonderful opportunities to serve others. Today's calendar: the lone lunch meeting. Not that I haven't attempted to work hard, it just has ended up that today is really light. Thank God!

It's not that I don't like being busy. Being busy means I meet more people, add more value to them, fulfill my purpose in life, provide for Kim and me as well as those whom we support, but it's good to take a pause whether intentionally or not. It's hard to see the beauty of God's blessings when we're right amidst them. It often isn't until we step back that we see the big picture and are astounded.

Don't let me fool you right now- I'm sitting in a car wondering why it is so hot so early in the year. I'm not in some nervanna state of mind, reaching enlightenment. I just think it is wonderful how God provides us with a life that is full of diversity. And today's change up is the fact that I have one meeting.

I hope and pray that I don't try to make my one meeting more than what it is. It is one meeting, not three. Let's not try and force a usual day's work out of one meeting. Instead, I pray that I love well, listen well, and add vaue in whatever way I can. That'll be a meeting- a day- worth living.
