notice however, how I am skillfully concealing my double chins....
It was good to hear from an old friend. However, her question gave me pause.
The question that stymied me was: What are you doing to keep busy?
Not a hard question and I do have an answer, but not the answer I was accustomed to giving.
What am I doing with my time? Shredding zucchini, peeling apples, walking, apending time with Mom and Dad, housework, sorting stuff, working in the yard.
Over the past years I could answer: homeschooling, teaching Sunday School, working in Awana, directing choir, helping in the food pantry….things that sounded good. Important. Significant. At least to me.
Now, what do I do to keep busy? Man, I can shred zucchini with the best of ‘em.
Bring it on.
I was hoping to be a great help to Mom and Dad, but so far they have been far more helpful to us.
As I have been pondering this question, I think I have come up with an answer. What am I doing to keep busy?
I am waiting.
Waiting on the LORD, renewing my strength. More time to pray, more time to watch and wait and see how God answers prayer.
I came across this wonderful quote from Oswald Chambers in the marvelous devotional book My Utmost for His Highest:
"Prayer does not fit us for the greater works; prayer is the greater work."
Hopefully you didn't miss the fun in comment section yesterday.
