This summer my husband and I have been asked to lead the closing segment of a two day conference of Christian library directors. At first my mind began to scramble and labor: How would I craft my knowledge with the topic? I talked with a friend, and together we began to imagine how I might proceed.
But lately, I have noticed a theme running through my life: (to quote Paul Simon) "slow down you move too fast" and in this slowed down time I am wondering if I just might have enough to give them already. If I look even at the material I gathered together to share at an open house my husband and I hosted with a visual artist, would I find a hint or an outline?
I think I will. And I think I will try hard not to try so hard this time. Self-defeating effort? Maybe I will relax and trust and do the work required at a pace that honors the life I share with the Risen Lord.
