It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do.
11/24/10 Anxiety is the space between “now” and the “then.” The holidays are a stressful time for many different reasons. Spend your time giving to someone else, which reminds you of the spiritual meaning of the season, not the stress. If you do the thing that makes you nervous, you will surely stay that way without faith in God. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. You are only here for a short visit to learn what is needed. So stop and smell ALL the flowers. Keep in the sunlight.
