...from my cubicle.
This has been one of those weeks where I started out waaaay behind on Monday and I still can't see how I'll ever get it all done. I listened to a great Andy Stanley podcast the other day about "Margin". He talked about a lot of the spiritual aspects of having margin or breathing room in our lives and gave some examples of God-given margin- such as the way he created us with a need to sleep and the need to stop to eat...we weren't designed to go non-stop all the time. Then God even commanded us to take a day of rest, give a tithe, and essentially structure parts of our life with a little barrier that says "I could do this, but I won't. I'm going to leave a little bit of margin."
It all sounds great, and inside I know it's true, but how do I go about it when I'm facing all sorts of deadlines and dilemmas? Any suggestions? I guess taking a moment to daydream about being at the beach has been my "moment of margin" for the last few minutes. But now it's time to snap out of it and get back to work.
*In an attempt to practice what I preach I left a little extra margin around the pictures rather than just cramming them all together.
