how not to be tired
Summit Lake

Summit Lake (taken from the window of a train in Alaska)

Recently I took a trip to Alaska with my family, and over the first couple of days I did pretty much nothing. I read Bonhoeffer’s Reflections on the Psalms. I slept – a lot. I worked out. I listened to music. I just…was.

And it was nice.

Lately there has been very little just existing and very much running around like crazy. Even today, Sunday, is less than restful. Okay, I suppose sitting here and writing is restful – but I should be writing papers, or planning the set for Emerge this week, or ….

Should. Maybe that’s the word that really troubles me.

I should do this, that or the other thing….

“The expectations upon me are….”

But what does God expect? If I were following that a little more closely, I think perhaps I would not be quite so tired.
