Rest, in December?!?!?! YES!

     So December is close upon us. Folks tend to get crazy with stuff-to-do in December.
     Rev. Christian Sorensen asks, "When was the last time you just sat and watched a bird for an hour doing its bird thing, without feeling rushed inside or as if you were wasting precious time?"
     If you look back over past Decembers, chances are extremely high that everything that HAD to get done, got done, and you don't remember what did not get done. This year will be no different, especially if you choose to take some breathers in your busy pace.
     Two things to consider: 1) time and 2) necessity.
     First, time. It is a human invention. We create time, and we (i.e., you) can create as much as we need. If this sounds wacko, I refer you to the book, The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks. Read about "Einstein time." Speaking from personal experience, it works.
     Second, necessity. What a great idea to use the occasional breather to decide if some task really is a necessity. Habits tend to overload us, and if we can simply take a few moments to consider a chore, we may find that it really isn't necessary or could be accomplished in some other way.
     Peacefully enjoying the Christmas season,
