I stare blankly at the squares in front of me. Each one blurs into the next and I can’t help but wonder what could possibly need to be added to this madness. Still, the pen in hand was no accident. There is something I am missing on here, yet after looking at all the ink already spilled, I can’t imagine what it was.
It was something I had vowed never to do. Be a slave to a calendar. Fill the squares full intentionally. And the older I get the more it becomes vividly clear. It takes a conscious effort to simplify. Streamline ones schedule so that a calendar becomes artwork and nothing more.
A chuckle escapes from my lips as I put the pen away. For I recall just last night praying for peace. Asking God point-blank the secret to achieving stillness. It’s been a pattern lately, me asking questions He’s already told me the answers to. And I’m starting to see why it’s taking them so long to sink in. I haven’t made the space for them on this schedule-genie clinging to the wall….
Friends, a few weeks ago I received an email from a reader/fellow blogger, Diana. She shared her heart with me and showed me how we are striving for the same thing: To be still and simply know…He is…
Diana asked if I could share with her readers what is on my heart and I humbly and prayerfully said yes.
