Wasting Time

15 thoughts on “Wasting Time”

  1. Quiet, down time is so important. In the busy-ness of our days, it’s sometimes impossible to really connect, with others, with our own feelings. I vote for wasting time a little more often, to know just what’s in our hearts.

  2. Things are not as they seem. http://www.allisonwelch.com/myfirstyear/2010/09/perspective.html I read a quote somewhere, and now I can’t find the source to credit it, but it was about standing on my head and kicking at the heavens. As I begin to try to “right” myself I start to see that what the world says is “wasting time” is in fact participating in the eternal “now.” my favorite meditation – http://www.allisonwelch.com/myfirstyear/2010/09/be-attitudes.html

  3. In this world of endless overload it is hard to disconnect. Even my prayerful time can be difficult to isolate myself so that my prayers are heard in my own head.

    I am thankful always that God hears them even when I don’t.

    I am also thankful to have a private room in my home – My Sanctuary – in which to try to calm the storm in my head so I can get closer to God.

    1. You are blessed to have that Sacred Space. It is so difficult, that is why it’s so important that we keep sending these messages to each other.

  4. I am catch up here- goodness you have written loads since I last visited. You must have had a real surge of inspiration – I love the hanging out with god concept !
    But I do find prayer a real mountain. I find Fr. Austin Fleming’s prayers at a Concord Pastor comments blog are awesome and I use them a lot.
    Blessings. Keep up the brilliant work here !

    Will try and comment on your other posts too – please forgive me.

    1. Thank you so much Phil…I’m so glad you stopped by. I love your blog! Yes, I agree, it is a mountain…a tough climb and somewhere where I don’t want to come down from….how unrealistic is that?
