Patience

I said in a previous post that I was trying to start nothing new in May. This was partly to allow seeds that I had planted previously to sprout. I often get myself into situations where I have lots of time, so I look around for things to do. The next thing I know is that these things have grown and I'm struggling to keep up with all of them. So I am trying to be patient.
One of the problems with this is that I become unmotivated. The other, that I am facing this morning, is that after a number of weeks, seeds are starting to sprout and I've lost interest in those projects.
'Doing nothing new' hasn't stopped me dreaming - waiting for June. But I must go back now and try to rekindle an enthusiasm that I had weeks ago. I'll do it. If God wants it, it will happen (or hopefully it won't be me that stops it!)
The activity in the Methodist Church around synods and the related acrimony is absolutely mind-destroyingly depressing.
Lord - let me, and your church, light a candle and not just curse the darkness. (Although, if you don't mind, I think I'll do some cursing as well!)

Hey Jenny,
June is closing in on us fast. Hang in there. Regards to the family. Enjoy not attending Synod for a year or two. I have to admit, this year's Synod has left me feeling very flat:(

Strength, grace and peace,
Delme

Thanks Delme and strength to you also. It does help when we know that we are not the only people struggling!
