For this new blog category, “Sunday Night Glance,” I’d like to take a moment on Sunday evenings to take a very quick glance at a weekend “something.”
Do you ever feel as if you simply cannot focus? Maybe it’s my age (a VERY young senior citizenship), but several times this weekend, I have found myself not focusing on anything. Basically being mentally lazy. For example, at church this morning, Palm Sunday …
… I dozed off during parts of the sermon.
Here’s my question: “Do we have to be fully present to be fully present?” Or sometimes, is it okay (even preferable) to recognize that “checking out” occasionally from our moment-to-moment, almost technologically-dictated agendas can be a good, even refreshing thing?
Rest is good. Deep breathing is good. Checking out momentarily is good. Not being clearly in focus, even, can be good.
P.S. Wake me up at 7:45 in the morn please.
