|I love this dog.|
Also, reading lots and listening to music and cooking and cleaning and organizing and walking the dog, and going to the gym.
As in my sabbatical, I'm revisiting a daily question for God "How do you want to be with me today?" and a daily question for myself "What do you you really want?"
In these questions I can feel the distillation of what's important for the day. Even if tasks take up my time, if I ask those questions I keep myself present to "deep time" and a knowing of what's important in the light of eternity. I love how Richard Rohr talks about this concept--and contemplation as a key to proper perspective.
