The post-Christmas paperclog is causing me much concern. This afternoon has reminded me of working back in an office. When life got too overwhelming I used to deliberately make myself slow down, take one piece of paper off the top and deal with it and keep going like that………. sometimes till late in the night.
Life couldn’t get like that in retirement could it? I hear the echo of many voices in my head saying…….Of course it could. So this afternoon I have managed to reduce the total of nine inches high of paper, down to six and a bit inches. There has been a measure of satisfaction, and I managed to resist the temptation to go faster and faster to try and finish it off. Those days are long gone.
A few more days and all shall be tamed. All shall be well and all manner of things…….. as Julian of Norwich said. Thus I surmise that God is in the paperclog and lowly things.
