Slowing Down

It seems that God has a tendency to teach lessons in the small things in life. The big lessons seem obvious, but the small ones can be overlooked if you don't slow down to notice them. If you know me at all, you know I am an extremely task-oriented person. I work almost exclusively on a list in my mind. One of the biggest tasks I have right now is to get our little studio together. This task has become distracting and borderline consuming. I don't want to do anything or go anywhere until we have things together. All week long I have been anticipating the weekend, almost positive that I could have everything in it's place by Sunday night. What I wasn't anticipating, however, was being sick all weekend. Boo! Now, I am stuck laying down looking at all of things I wish I could get done. What hurts even more is having to watch the USC/Ohio State game on TV as opposed to watching it in L.A. as planned. The lesson this weekend has been a good one--one that I have had to learn many times. When it is all said and done, the tasks that seem so important right now, won't make a difference either way.

Don't know if "chillax" is in God's vocabulary, but if it is, He probably would have said to you, "Chillax my"

How's the Hail Mary going? I hope you're feeling better. Much love.
