For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
A Time For Work
As I return to work after a fabulous vacation I am reminded of the above Bible verse. I have the post-vacation blues and only want to continue my time away from work and day-to-day responsibilities…but alas, that is not an option and the time to work has arrived.
So how do I get focused on the tasks at hand? How do I prevent the post-vacation, “I’m so behind” madness that so often ensues?
First of all and most importantly, I pray for wisdom, guidance, and clarity. There is so much to do but as I started off with…there is a time for each and everything…just not all today! Or tomorrow and maybe not this week. The whole purpose of a vacation is to obtain rest and refreshment…not to stress out upon return.
So with all that said…Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho…it’s off to work I go!
