Are You Tired of the Daily Grind?

We are busier beyond what we can handle. The blur of activity of the daily grind becomes a badge of identification stating “I have so much to do and it all matters.” We become addicted to busy-ness.

What is your home base?

Remember playing tag and having a refuge of home base? It was only place where you were safe. You couldn’t be tagged “it.” Home base was a refuge of security for the fast ones who got there first. Maybe home base was a large tree or someone’s front porch. Sometimes the slow ones hung out there for safety. Regardless, it was a place to breathe a sigh of relief. Refuge. A safe place where you can breathe a sigh of relief from the storm. A shelter or protection from danger or distress. We need protection from the storms we...
