On my way back from Ohio, I heard a comment on the radio that I haven’t been able to shake. It was simple and yet to me – so profound. We are all so busy with life. I know that my days are filled with work and work and running people to and from work and paying bills and planning a church start and . . . . You get the idea and can probably relate to some degree or even more!!
It was a simple idea and I think I’ll try it. I have a To Do list and try to always get things done. I feel like I’ve accomplished something as I cross each item off. The suggestion was to add a spot on the list called To Feel. On your To Feel list, add things like: sit down – relax and take in the fresh spring air (thanking God for His beautiful Creation), hug your daughter, write a short note to your wife reminding her that she is special, call your mom or dad and say “just thinking about you,” by a classmate a candy bar, play catch with your son, pause – be still – and know that He is God.
I used to be good at doing many of those things but the To Do list has crowded them out – so why not add them to the list and FEEL again?!
