What is it about a really long day that makes it so much better than a short one? Yesterday was filled to the brim beginning with morning church admin business, moving directly into a lengthy hospital clinic visit–including the long drive to and from Lakewood, rushing back to Silverdale so as not to miss little Rachel’s birthday party, then home to watch the news with an unintentional, brief interlude of dosing off (apparently the news wasn’t very exciting), and then off to my room for several hours of reading. In contrast, today’s schedule calls for a few errands and one joyfully anticipated lunch appointment with a good friend and ministry partner. Of course, I’ll find productive ways to use the “empty” hours, but I know late tonight will feel less satisfying simply because every moment was not hyperactive. Is this a good thing or not?
I think both. What do you think?
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. Proverb 13:4
The fear of the LORD leads to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied; he will not be visited by harm. Proverb 19:23
