The Lord is my pacesetter
I shall not rush,
He makes me stop and
rest for quiet intervals.
He provides me with images
Which restore my serenity.
He leads me in the way of efficiency
through calmness of mind.
And his guidance is peace.
I still don't like Mondays. I always feel the most pressure to get going and get things started on Monday. Even though I am now retired, I go to sleep on Sunday nights with a little feeling of dread. Oh no, yet another 'work week'. I have no one to blame for feeling pressure of any sort except myself. This morning my to-do list is filled with stuff I need to do for a luncheon I am hosting on Friday. Must be meatless (it's Lent). Plans for a "blog tutorial" needed to be rescheduled. Is it too early yet to plant some pansies? I am still looking through my Easter decorations, but they seem 'old' . Perfect excuse for a shopping expedition, right? Wrong! I bought some new things last Easter but they are hiding somewhere in this little house. Another note to self: better time management! I really believe that I got more things done when I was employed.
I was happy to read this poem while going through mail, languishing over my second cup of coffee. Helps put things in perspective for me. What is really important vs. the need to do it all.
Have a great week, and a productive one! xo,
