I have been busy lately, so there is my excuse for not updating my blog. Interestingly I have been busy with many things that are not life and death. I have been busy with a schedule that I created. I have made myself busy by the commitments that I have made, and then I told people that I was a slave to that creation. How interesting is that, I made the landmine, and then I jumped on it. Obviously I have many things in my life that are non-negotiables, those are not what have made me busy. It is the small weeds that are choking out the big, beautiful flowers. If I were more serious about my relationships, and the important work of my life, I would not allow those weeds to get into my schedule. I tend to see my life as a bunch of time slots that are open, instead of viewing it as relationships to tend to. Should I be subject to time or relationships? Won’t tending relationships take enough time as it is?
