I read today that often we get caught up in trying to do today what can easily be put off until tomorrow. I think that causes us to rush around and feel that we have too much to do and we are never going to finish the many tasks we think we need to do. Some things are important. You do not want your children to have nothing in the house to eat, but you do not need to do other things that take up our time and leave us feeling frazzled and wondering where the time we thought we would have just for restful prayer or reflection has gone. Remember, each of us has all the time there is. No one has less than 24 hours a day. How are we prioritizing our time? Even here, in a retirement home, I need to plan and take time to just enjoy the beauty around me. There will always be a list of things that we want to do, we should do, and we will do, but they do not need to be done today.
Again, perhaps this is the Holy Spirit as I did not intend to write any of this.
