Your heart will be where your treasure is. Matthew 6:21

The most powerful life is the life that knows where its going, that knows where the source of strength is, and the life that stays free of clutter and happenstance and hurriedness. Being busy is not a sin. Jesus was busy. Paul was busy. Peter was busy. Nothing of significance is achieved without effort and hard work and weariness....But being busy in an endless pursuit of things that leave us empty and hollow and broken inside that cannot be pleasing to God.

Man this is a sweet paragraph. Did you write that, Janice? I love it. I need to read that about every two weeks. It's so easy to get distracted by the unimportant. Thanks!
