The View from My Desk
It's Lent and I can barely tell. I'm so busy at work. I'm grateful to have the job but I'm working 50-60 hours/week. We are hiring so I hope some of the pressure will abate eventually. Blogging is going to be light to non-existant for a while. By the time I unplug from work and get ready for bed-It's time for bed. I don't have time to compose a blog post much less read blogs.
I'm glad I have my desk crucifix. It keeps the Lord in my peripheral vision, if not my full vision. I was so busy on Ash Wednesday that I never got ashes. I know. It's not technically a Holy Day of Obligation but it is a good spiritual practice and way to kick off Lent. What did I do? Work. I usually go to Confession to start Lent off on a strong note-what was I doing? Something else. Never got that done either this year.
I feel like I'm rendering unto Caesar more than the Lord.
People talk about the work/life balance. Where's the spiritual/work balance? I carry the Lord with me when I can. I pray in my car on the way to and from work. I pray before lunch. But, I feel like I'm cramming Him in along with everything else. Will it come to the point that I'm putting the Lord in my Outlook calender?!?
I'm being totally serious. What do you do?
