In the Flow

It's like when you knock over the first domino. The cascade begins as a slow trickle until ...

whoooooosh...

there is no stopping the waterfall of clicks.

Our days have been a little bit like that. I don't even know what started the trickle of "go here" and "run there", but last week was a fun waterfall of friends and pools and kids and laughter. Oh, and good food. A LOT of good food.

And then I feel it. That twinge. That little lull in my morning. That little missing link when we sing "Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, REJOICE!".

It's the busyness that I will say NO to if it overshadows my time with Him. It's my pencil-filled-calendar that seems too crowded for the secret place. It's showing up on Sunday and realizing how desperate and lovesick I feel for my best friend.

So, today is a new day. I will make space for Him because without Him there really is no meaning. It's a cascade of dominos, and we all know what happens after the last one falls over. NOTHING.




But time spent with Him affects everything and gives definition to my busy, fun-friend-pool-kid-laughter-food filled days.
