Good morning, well I must say I am so relaxed today I am a little  off my timing.  There's nothing like rest and rejuvenation to spark the spirit and heal the soul.  Sometimes we just need to put the brakes on and slow ourselves down to a complete stop.  Many of us are running on full throttle so much that we are whisking through life and really not enjoying the scenery. We all know that the rat race is out there.... but we also know that the second rat gets the cheese.  Slow down... feast on the day... smell the flowers; better yet take some time and actually plant a few.    We hurry though each day wishing for it to be over but in reality we are asking for our lives to hurry and be done.  You might say- "I can't wait until next month, this project will conclude." It seems like a harmless statement but remember our words are very powerful. Before you know it the time has come and gone but what other important things have you also sped through-Time you could have spent with family; time you could have enjoyed doing things you like; reading, crafts, movies; time you could have used deepening your relationship with God. Well after years of chasing the brass ring and always falling and skinning my knees I am embracing the fine art of doing as Jesus says in Matthew 11:28-30 "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Be blessed!  Dr. JoAnn

The Bible verse quoted in your blog is a perfect motivation to try to achieve a work-life balance. People are often caught up in a rat race in order to feed their ambition for success and wealth. This is not to say it is wrong to want money and success. But be careful not to sacrifice the other things that are also important in your life like personal relationship with family, friends and the Lord. We also need to focus on these intangible/immaterial things because any wealth or success your acquire would feel meaningless if you have managed to destroy these important relationships because of your inattentiveness and thoughtlessness. Find that good balance and avoid sacrificing one over the other.
