Kept it short, sweet and to the point. The story of Martha and Mary from the gospels. If anyone is like me, then they are constantly running from here to there, worrying about this and that………what do I have to do next, who do I have to meet where, etc. Past CoT’s of mine have been about Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God”. Today is about being still and being PRESENT. Take the time each day, maybe starting with just a few second, minutes or however much you can give. Take the time to be present. Slow down. It is possible to be PRESENT without being in the PRESENCE, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to be in the PRESENCE without being PRESENT. Think about that for a bit. One last thing, not something that you need to answer out loud, this is only for you. If God were to send you a text message at this very second, what would it say? A word? A phrase? When a good friend of mine asked me that question, my answer was “BREATHE”. I needed to hear that from myself at the time, and now as well. We get so focused on everything that is going on around us, sometimes we forget to be present in the presence.


There was a fair bit of mumble chatter from the PAX this morning about various things. Mostly how wonderful the weather is, and then as we got started on The Thang….about how much everyone LOVED being out there for some Blue’s Q’s. I even had lots of PAX telling me how much they LOVED me and one PAX even wanted to bring me a brown bag full of some fragrant presents he collected from his dog!!! He even said he would illuminate it on my from porch so I would be sure to find it. Fun was had all around.
