I woke up thinking about what needs to be done.
I broke the habit years ago.
There was a time . . .
when my kids were young,
when each day seemed BIG,
when I gave all my energy to navigate through the demands of 24 hours,
when I determined to make their world better,
when imperfection remained despite my effort,
. . . I learned:
What I do will never be as important as who I am.
I realized the to-do list is secondary to the daily process of
being an intentional and mindful human-being joined to the heart of God.
And, now . . .
when the world is messier than ever,
when so many things are wrong,
when young and old are worried,
when there does not seem to be solid ground,
. . . I’ve realized it’s still true today.
The book of Micah describes who God asks us to be:
No. He has told you, mortals, what is good in His sight.
What else does the Eternal ask of you:
to live justly
to love kindness
and to walk with your True God in all humility (Micah 6:8, Voice).
These words are not a to-do list but a key to learn how to be in this world.
At the end of my life, I hope someone will say:
She lived justly, loved kindness, and walked with God in all humility.
The thing is . . . I believe this world needs you and I to be that kind of person . . . more than ever –Kerrie
