It's hard to even put into words where I am at the moment.
What is really important in this life?
I host a bible study in my home on Wednesday mornings. A lady from church came yesterday that had not come before. She actually lives in our neighborhood. While we were going around the room telling a bit about ourselves she got very emotional when it was her turn. We asked her if she would like someone else to talk while she composed herself. When we got back to her she told us she'd just been diagnosed with breast cancer...
Life is hard.
I haven't been watching all the stuff on tv about Haiti. My mind is there though. I just know from past experience that if I sit in front of the tv watching all of those images that it will swallow me. There is so much pain in this world... so much suffering.
I want to DO SOMETHING.
When? Where? How?
I am pulled in so many different directions. I allow myself to be distracted in so many ways. You know that saying, "Jack of all Trades, Master of None" ? I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Not just in terms of myself... in terms of other people as well... in terms of the body of Christ. How many of us try to be all things to all people?
Focus... I need to focus. I need to keep the big picture in mind and then zoom in.
I know this post is pretty vague. It is just where my mind is today.
Now, I need to run around like a chicken with my head cut off to get the house ready to have our carpets cleaned this afternoon. Oy.
