I am a list maker.
Today’s To Do list.
A long term To Remember list.
A list of people I need to be in touch with.
But I realized today as I worked my way down my list that something was missing. Something I remind others of nearly every Sunday, but which was getting lost as I went from one task to the next. One person to the next. I was forgetting that in the midst of everything else I have the responsibility of doing, I am also to be Light and Hope and Grace and Presence to others. Each day I am to do what I can to both recognize and to bring God’s Kingdom close. At least that is what I believe. And, so I am adding something to my list for today. And, for tomorrow.
- Make a difference
- Touch another’s life
- Recognize God’s presence
Maybe if those things are on my list each day, I will do a better job of paying attention to not just what needs done, but who I am called to be.
