As our life has quite abruptly and drastically shifted, along with everyone’s around the globe, I have been reflecting on our daily rhythm and working at reorganizing our schedule into a work-play-rest rhythm.
Procrastination happens for a reason. A quote I saw once suggested that often, it's because I don't give ourselves enough between projects to fully rest and enjoy the sense of accomplishment before starting the next. I feel reluctant to begin something, not because I'm not interested, but because I'm still not finished with the past project. A project is not complete until it includes the rest.
There’s something about being in God’s creation that seems to stretch time. I feel a sense of abundance and re-connection with the Creator of all. Time taken in rest, away from the people-creations which focus on time, money, production, and consumption, I remember who I am, I re-centre my self and life in Christ, and I re-commit myself to the community of faith which seeks to live in the kingdom of the Creator.
I might just be ready for a new semester.
