I cherish the downtime I have whether planned or forced. I have been perfectly content to be enclosed watching the snow fall and enjoying my quiet time.
Yesterday I read, cleaned, worked on a project, cooked, talked to all my family, then read some more. All things I don't usually have the time for while going to and fro.
Today I listened to John and Charles on TV, had my quiet time, worked on a project, cooked, read, walked the neighborhood with my husband, completed session one of Esther and watched the DVD with Beth, cried, laughed and learned. How can we get bored closed in less than 48 hours. With all the technology and opportunities we have to be energized why do we get bored so quickly. Maybe it is because we have not learned to be content with where God has us. We are always wanting something else. If we don't have down time we complain, if we do, we complain. Will we ever learn to be content in ALL things?
Tomorrow most of us will be back to the grind. Then the Lord will hear us complain we are too busy and don't have enough time to do the things we desire to do. Are we ever satisfied with where He has us?
