Pastor Patricia’s Pauses

Here we are in Fall, one of my favorite seasons. But wait! It has already snowed twice this year – and not just light snow, but the heavy wet stuff! What was that great reason that I had seven years ago to move to Wyoming? Oh, yeah, it was for a job. But then we stayed because of the people.

It is on those not so nice (weather wise) that I’m reminded what is truly important in life. It really has nothing to do with my schedule, where I’m working (or not working). What has become important in my life is two things: my relationship with my Savior and my relationships with other people. As I sit here and think about it, it doesn’t really matter if we have lots of money or things. It doesn’t really matter if I got a good night sleep or ate the healthy foods. And it doesn’t matter if I managed to exercise that day or not. What really matters in life is my experiences that I have with God and with other people. Why do we in this culture make it so complicated? With the internet, my cell phone, email, texting and other social media, I have found that I just can’t keep up with it all, all the time.

But what I can keep up with is my journey with God in this life. And that, of course, involves all the relationships that I have made over the years. So, I think I’ll take some time and reprioritize my days to make sure that I’m spending quality time (not necessarily quantity of time) with those who mean most to me. And perhaps we could all do that this month as I’m thankful for the people in my life and for my God.
