My front windshield is cracked,
has been for several months now.
Every now and again,
I have the money to fix it,
but end up spending the cash
on something else.
Yes, yes, we only have so many resources
I feel this a metaphor for something:
The world’s problems are vast and consuming,
and we can spend all our days chasing
after all kinds of things,
that seem good and productive at the time;
or, we can spend time fixing the windshields
of our lives.
Ah, yes. I can see clearly now.
The crack is gone.
I find I am much happier when I am at rest.
Note, I am seldom without something to do;
but, there is a significant difference between
having a schedule that’s full to the brim,
and doing what needs to be done as the need arises.
I have a knack for overbooking.
Why? I don’t know.
It takes me away from my wife, it robs me of my joy,
and it depletes my finances,
yet I overbook all the time.
Maybe I just desire the fame, or the attention?
Or maybe I am just afraid of being alone.
God, you are enough.
Let me be proactive about pursuing peace.
Welcome me in to Your Sabbath rest.
