What are we Busy About?

"It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?"
Henry David Thoreau

I too am swamped this week. But as I've said before, it's a good busy. Last night at our "Savior of the World" week kickoff fireside, our director Tasha said something that has stuck with me. She said that we will be over our heads busy this week, but we must remember that we are on the Lord's errand. That's what I am busy about this week.

It overwhelms me when I see what I have to accomplish and where I have to be. But I know I can do it all because I am busy about something that matters. This is a message that is going to reach out to our community, in places we can't even begin to imagine. What a gift we are sharing. And we're going to do it in a way we and the Lord will all be proud of.

It's a good busy.

Good luck with all of your production preparation. I know it will be amazing. Thanks for the nice thoughts about being busy. I need to decide if I'm busy just to be busy or if I'm really accomplishing anything......

Hope all goes well this week. This is a big production, I saw the website and this play looks wonderful. What a huge undertaking for a stake to put on.

Me? I am "busy about" getting our family in in our home to have a sense of normality once again!
