Welcome to 31 Days …
My heart keeps coming back to our fast-paced world, how we naturally get into routines and rhythms with our families and schedules, and how busyness sets in. Even though we naturally long to spend time with family and friends, we often lose sight of what’s important.
Busyness. A demanding schedule is the biggest hindrance to getting together with those we love.
Disinterest. Sometimes, sadly, we’re just not interested in others.
Disappointment. We stop connecting when we’re hurt or others don’t reciprocate.
Neglect. We forget that relationships are eternal, the most important thing in our lives.
I’m never disappointed when we invite people into our home. The best gifts in life are enjoying the relationships around us, the blessings of eating and drinking together, listening and engaging with one another.
Today, October 1, 2011, as the weather has already begun to feel like Fall, even with a few Indian Summer lingering days, it’s time to hunker down and get cozy.
I’m glad you are here with me today. Will you join me for the next 30 Days in October? (Share your link below!)
Do you struggle, like most of us do, with busyness, disinterest, disappointment or neglecting what could be warmer connections in your life?
