It sure seems a lot longer than four and a half months since Obama was president, doesn’t it? Like maybe a whole decade or twenty or even a hundred years ago. With so much insanity bombarding us every day that has dire implications on our lives and those of the people we love, it’s easy to feel like a Bobblehead toy that keeps getting sucker-punched by hard, cold reality. These days, you might get trolled for even believing reality is real. I think for many of us, staying glued to the news is the only way we feel like we stay connected to what’s real (even if that reassuring feeling of groundedness is just an illusion) .
Our favorite pundits and news anchors and commentators are the heroes we look up to for some idea of what unspeakable dangers might be coming down the pike. You just never know…

I will never become unmoored if I remember this from Matthew 6.
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass…

Good Monday morning, friends! I trust that you had a wonderful weekend, and now you’re ready to start a new week — ripe with opportunities to grow, to love, to teach, and to serve. Some of us will actively seek to do these things while others do them with seemingly very little effort. It’s just who they are and how they operate.
All that time and effort you spend actively doing God’s will can be exhausting. It’s rewarding, but some days you just feel spent. That is when you should unplug for a spell. Disconnect from the world, and spend some time alone. Allow yourself some quiet time to reconnect with God.
