Isn't it interesting how doing nothing can wear you down?  It's been 6 days since the beach, our last day of rest.  Coming off a 14 1/2 hour car ride, I’m looking forward to an active day-keep moving, pick up the pace, don’t stop.  Consequently I’m annoyed having to “hang out and relax” (though I understand our plans changed due to circumstances beyond our control).  Now I’m simply sitting, taking the time just to be.  It feels good.  I can’t help but wonder if in this moment God is working to reveal something to me, reveal a pattern in my life.  Have I taken the time to just be still; to know the Lord?  No.  Maybe, just maybe, if I stopped for a moment, I might connect with God and find the clarity I’ve been looking for.
