Summer

I can relate to several parts of this post - especially the way that focusing on singing only is such a relief and joy. I have been divesting myself of church responsibilities lately, because, now that your post has pointed it out, no, I can't be a Christian while I'm rushing around. I always screw things up the worst when I try to be little miss admin. I'm not an admin. I'm an artist. I write and sing and teach. Trying to do all the stuff at church is just too tiring. Trying to do any dang thing at church is too tiring. If I can't stop and linger, then how am I like Jesus, whose hallmark was walking around shooting the breeze with people? And more importantly, how can I hear anything holy if I'm racing so that the divine is only so much wind in my ears?

Thank you for writing this! And I hope that you find a way to slow down and savor all these good days.
