If Christ truly is the pivot on which our whole life is anchored then all aspects of this life must be balanced and connections maintained,
Yesterday I learnt a valuable life lesson. It enforced what I have always believed passionately and that is Jesus Christ came to this Earth to show us the right PATH to walk LIFE in His Salvation, But He also came to give us an Abundant LIFE this side of eternity.
We are given the responsibility of keeping it balanced.
We took the little dog for her regular clipping. We returned to collect a dancing little terrier now free from the heavy coat of winter,
While we waited I asked Dave to drop me off for an hour or so at the Library.
I took time to sit in silence, imbibe the rich smell of books ,connect with new staff and speak with the more senior staff still there. I renewed my library card. I was shocked to discover it had been two years since I had been there. Covid, personal life concerns and so much on-line ‘stuff’
As a writer I was delighted they still remembered me and welcomed me. I connected with a side of my life as a person that needed the understanding and encouragement they provided.
Once again I am inspired to seek to ensure there is a balanced life where the mental, spiritual, social physical and emotional are all being given their balanced place in each day.
All ‘connections’ are essential.
HE IS LORD OF it all.
