Busy, Busy

My apologies for being away from blogging for so long.

How are you doing? How have you been?
When I ask this question, most people will, say " Fine...really busy!"
It seems that we answer "Busy" as if it is an admirable, very good thing...not lazy!
I sometimes chuckle to myself when people almost brag about their busy-ness and yet complain about how busy they are. I maintain that most of our busy-ness is our own fault brought on by the choices we make, so why do we complain about it.

Staying active and involved in many wonderful causes and relationships is good, but in todays' world, it takes an act of the will, to be still and quiet. I want to enjoy such moments more often right here and now in my own backyard; without having to chase, fly or drive for miles to some remote cabin or all-inclusive for a few costly days of it.

"Be still and know that I am God."
