This Weekend~September 12~Ignore

This weekend, after a slew of unsettling abruptions (abrupt interruptions) here is my focus.

Perhaps it rings true for you too?

Ignore Negativity. Domestic Serenity explains that the active definition of the word Ignore is to Intentionally Disregard. Turn instead toward Grace. Soak in it.

Deep Breath. So true. This weekend, may you Intentionally Disregard all that negatively clamors to you and on you. (Wanna know a secret? They only get louder when you are doing work that matters.) Here is a good place to begin.

Ignore Negativity

This weekend, perhaps it rings true for you too? Ignore Negativity. Ignore The Spectator, The Complainer and The Hater. Focus on Grace, the Grace that can’t be ignored. This weekend, Ignore Negativity. Ease your mind into Grace.

Mid-week question of the Week~January 8~one year from today

In one year from today…

What might I deeply regret if it didn’t get done?

I saw this question in a post from Domestic Serenity. It called to me to stop and consider the pace at which I complete things and also the pace at which I disgard things and activities off of my “to-do” list. To counter-act any over active “to-do” list, I often strike-off activities at will. Whether I make my “to-do” list my idol or, alternatively, make my “to-don’t” list a savior, the result is the same: I need to count the cost.

Luke 14:28-29 (MSG) “Is there anyone here who, planning to build a new house, doesn’t first sit down and figure the cost so you’ll know if you can complete it? If you only get the foundation laid and then run out of money, you’re going to look pretty foolish.”

Finding a balance between rigid oak and driftwood is delicate and must be accompanied by prayer for discernment.

You’re either someone who makes things happen or watches things happen — or maybe you have no idea what’s happening! Those who make things happen are the people who change the world. ~Rick Warren

This Weekend~unHurry~Can you Do It?

“Hurry rushes toward the destination and fails to enjoy the journey” ~Alan Fadling in his book An Unhurried Life*

A sudden winter ice storm caused me to do it today as the roads became slick with frozen reminders that we are not in charge.

Perhaps the early sunset will cause you to do it.

Perhaps a cold, or other wintertime illness with cause you to do it.

Or a traffic jam,a long line,

Or a brief encounter with beauty:

sunset

Whether or not it is intentional or unintentional, might you take time to take your time this weekend?

Might you unHurry?

Pause

Savor

There will be time to jump on the conveyor belt of busy…

But, perhaps, this weekend, especially today when many flags will fly at half-staff,

it is a good time to engage in the unHurry, in the uneventfully vital.

Sit and watch/Stand and see/kneel and pray/

unHurry for a respite.

I first learned about Fadling’s book from this post at Domestic Serenity
