To Do List by the Shepherdess of Nevrdun

My friend sent this message in her newsletter today and I thought her wisdom may apply to us this week as we strive to get everything done by Christmas! (I included the visuals for effect ;-))

Love, Kathy

How is your “to do” list?
Too long to fit on the scrap of paper you started writing it on? Is it as disorganized and scattered as you feel right now? Maybe it is filled with scratches and scribbles and coffee dribbles.
Or maybe it is trim and tidy, with jobs listed in priority, and completed items crossed off with a thin, neat line.
Whichever the case, let’s not forget to include the word, “love.”
“Love is the duty of the present moment.” (Jean-Pierre de Caussade) Even when we’re feeling stressed, time pressured, over-committed, tense, tugged, stretched, and sagging under the strain, love is still our duty, our obligation, our divine service, our act of worship.
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” – 1 Corinthians 13:1
