Goofing off?

Am I goofing off?? Or just taking a breather from the hectic pace of life and seminary and interning and parenting and marriage and friends….

I can’t seem to get motivated. Christmas is coming. Shopping isn’t done. I need baking supplies for a Saturday of cookie baking with Reedy Girl and The Harpist. What I have purchased I need to start wrapping.

And all I can think is… EH.

The pressure during the semester is high, and often intense. Right now my to-do list is blissfully short of MUST do’s, and long with COULD do’s. And I really don’t have the desire to work on either.

I realized that my lackadaisical heart can spill out into my devotional life. I can be a foolish bridesmaid (like the ones in Matthew 25) — not being diligent. Not really thinking ahead and looking to the day, readying myself for Jesus’ return.

At the moment, though, I think it’s probably OK if I kick back. Just a little.
