This morning I was wondering how on earth I could juggle the busy elements of my life – conference preparation, garden planning, preparation for February speaking my current writing project and preparation for the MSA Board, with a balanced spiritual life, time for hospitality, community, friends and most importantly my husband. Doing the balancing act is never easy and the busier we are the more difficult it becomes. But I think I am learning that when I am too busy the solution is not to ratchet up my speed but actually to slow down – preferably with a cup of tea, take a deep breathe and prioritize my tasks, then and probably most important I need to commit everything into God’s hands. Sometimes i scares me to see how quickly everything seems to get done when I do this. Life is so busy that we cannot live it without God.
It seemed a very appropriate time to think about this because this is Adbusters slow down week
