Ballet Of The Butterflies

They are predicting rain for the rest of the week. It has not arrived yet and today, the weather is extremely nice. It is cool, overcast and windy. Just the way I like it. The office door is open and I can hear the wind gently caressing the foliage. The soft rustle has a soothing and calming effect on me.

The grass in our back yard is starting to grow and so are the flowers. Our back yard is adorned with all kinds of different flowers. Yeah I know, it would be more appropriate to call them weeds. They are so pretty though. The yellow, white and purple colors attract lots of small butterflies. They are dancing through the yard, visiting flower, after flower.

I can sit here and watch it for hours. Maybe I will. Maybe I ought to go outside and enjoy the soft breeze, the gorgeous colors and admire the ballet of the butterflies. I don't. I make myself belief I do not have the time. I am covered up, overwhelmed. No time to waste.

Wow, stop right there. Who is overwhelming me? Who is covering me up? Who is simply not taking and making the time to relax and enjoy God's blessings? That would be I, me and myself! Is all what I am currently doing so important?

The answer is: it is important, but no one is rushing me, but me. To be honest, there are neither any benefits, nor disadvantages to whether it gets done quick, or slow. I really do not have a valid reason to be working my head off, every waking moment. All it does is, it gets me to the point where I am nothing but tired. And that I am.

God does not put more on us, then we can bear. Realizing that, I am backing off and backing out from rushing myself. If it gets done, then that is great. If it does not get done, oh well... tomorrow is another day.

I am going to enjoy those small blessings and be grateful for them. I am going to watch the ballet of the butterflies.! :-)

Matthew 6:34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Miss you too, girl.
