What would it be like to have no work? I know some folks have nothing to do, no actual work to get up for in the morning. I have no idea. Today is frustrating because there is so much to do, projects, assignments, the occasional sermon to be working on. And my mind is simply swimming. But no work? I can't fathom that. Some do though, they get bored, as I was told earlier this week. Can't say I've ever been bored, more the opposite. So with my bathroom leaking into my kitchen, jobs to find, and yardwork always calling, there's always something to do. thankfully, I also have meaningful work- conversations, writing, presentations that engage my heart and my mind. People to interact with. Too many adventures to investigate. I re discovered Matthew Fox's Reinvention of Work as I was donating a bookshelve-ful this week. He writes about just this- the need to reinvent or remember that work is so important. It all counts. God sees it all. So go ahead, get to work!
