Adjust your Pause Posture.
It always happens this time of year…
We all loose it.
I let the whole day go by before realizing I can’t find the “pause” button anywhere.
Even when I feel like I am pressing pause till my thumb is white with force…everything and everyone is zipping by me
It’s the reason I guard the daily rhythm of this season… I know there will be a fast forward and no pause in sight.
It stacks up in front of me and I can’t get to the bottom, or even the top, of the pile of things that “must be done”
But didn’t I learn this lesson, before?
So I look through a different lens to find the answer….because no matter how things pile up…
and things scream…Oh,
and people scream:
What is any of it worth if I haven’t heard?
If I have traveled my day on fast forward, and accomplished a notebook full of to-do’s…
It is all crap if I haven’t Heard?
If I haven’t Gathered?
If I haven’t Received?
I delegate some of the stacks and I watch…
I pick up the screaming, urgent, molar teething baby…and I watch
I watch the grateful to help…to be part of this Season…. he is grateful…
my eyes open to his diligence in this small stack..his joy.
this copper penny head blesses each envelope…”you get one and you get one and you get one” his tone so chipper.
he passes his joy to all
His little fist stamps each one blessed…and he means it
Why didn’t I notice where the pause button was all this time…
Right there this copper penny boy shows me…
I was missing it all along
It was in my posture
it is always in my posture..always needing the adjustment…
There he kneels and he finds joy… and feels fulfilled in his job.
There from his little knelt position he looks up at me and asks
“is this all right? am I doing it right? What is this word?..
I want them to see it first when they open our card…
Is it our name?“
ashamed that I couldn’t figure it out all day yesterday…but thankful…so thankful… I see it clearly today
lesson learned a thousand times.. but every season I learn it again…
Yet He is patient to wait for me
to learn how Blessed I am.
Is this season already running away with you? Get back to the basics…and remember none of the things you are doing are worth you not Receiving… all is crap if you aren’t Gathering all that He has for you… if you aren’t Hearing.
