When I manage to stay in the moment and not "dread ahead," I do pretty well. It worked while I was at Mom's. When I start dreading, I get overwhelmed and discouraged. I haven't spent much time in the apocrypha or deuterocanonical books, but twice in the last couple of weeks I have found myself reading Sirach 11:10 My child, do not busy yourself with many matters; if you multiply activities, you will not be held blameless. If you pursue, you will not overtake, and by fleeing you will not escape. I'm listening Lord!
Now for a couple of mini-notes:
- This was the first New Year's Eve G&T and I spent apart from each other in 30+ years. It was wierd. Maybe that's part of why I'm not so into this "new start" stuff.
- I'll be at the Congress on Evangelism this week. Anyone else???
- The temperature when I got up this morning was 46 degrees lower than yesterday's high of 84!
- I'm using this blog entry to stall from stuff I don't want to do, so time's up.
