Sunsets! There isn't much that beats a winter sunset. There is just something about the contrast between the white ground and the colors of a sunset, isn't there?
It feels like I have been away from blogging for an eternity. Between the holidays, a two week mission trip to New Orleans(check out the trip blog) and the startup of our campus Spring semester time has been at an incredible premium in the last month. I'm hoping it's now settling down to a dull roar. Time to hole up in the house in front of the corn burner and relax a little.
While at the doctor today (for a sinus infection I seem to have brought home from New Orleans), I mentioned to him a concern I have of the forgetfulness and inability to focus I've experienced lately.
After discussion about what has been going on in my life recently. His very eloquent $80 answer was "stop trying to juggle so many balls at once." How does one start dropping those balls out of the sequence? I've tried before somewhat sucessfully but then it seems I go back and pick them up again. Kind of like giving my concerns and worries to God...I lay them at His feet and then go grab them back again!
Does anyone else have trouble with this? What's your solution? What have you to backed away from recently?
Here's to the rest of the winter and dropping some of those balls! I'm really going to do it this time, really I am. Well, at least for a while.
