Balance   Leave a comment

Seems like the longer I live the more I feel that this is one of the most important things to do.

If I could just balance so many things:

My needs/others’ needs

Work/relaxation

Praying/listening

Exercise/rest

Being deliberate and intentional about goals and plans/Asking God to do the work and make things happen

The writer of Ecclesiastes was right.  Unfortunately a template for my day was not provided, but I can definitely see the wisdom in these words:

“There is a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance…a time to keep, and a time to cast away…a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate…”
