I am sorry I have not posted lately. I am a little under the weather. I am not bed-ridden, but, I am easily wiped out. I have not really had the mental capacity that I usually do (some might argue that I never have it.)
I am learning a lot about pacing myself. I am learning a lot about being a gardener.
Let me explain:
I have a business associate who has become a great encourager. She shared with me from her experience;
“Careers are like gardens. We can tend the plant and hoe – but only God can make them grow!”
It is almost biblical… oh wait… It is!
It was a great reminder. I can be very impatient. I am an anxious person. I enjoy immediate gratification.
I like cleaning my bathroom, because within a matter of minutes I can see the fruits of my labor.
What I do for a living requires me to be patient. It requires me to tend to the plant. And I believe that I am too close to it and I see it every day, and I don’t see the growth. I have to trust that God is making it grow.
Thanks for letting me share, again, this blog has sometimes been a bit self-serving.
