It’s school vacation week so some of the Grands and I are off on an adventure. So you won’t be hearing from me for a little longer than a week. Which may be good news to some of you. Meanwhile, I challenge you (and me) to settle into God’s faithfulness and leave worries behind. And to stay alert. Not for dangers but for ways God shows up. Grace comes at unexpected and undeserved times.
This morning I read in Buechner’s Listening to Your Life, “If we really had our eyes open, we would see that all moments are key moments.” So, back to worrying. Or not. The Message translation of Matthew 6: 33 reads, “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”
Easy to write. And so I pray that this season of Lent will help me do better at practicing what I write.
Meanwhile, I will take time-off from technology. As Anne Lamott said, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”
Here’s to less worrying and more unplugging.
