Sometimes my list of things I must do gets so long that it seems as if the end – well – I will never get there. Problem is that as I check one more thing off the list, another seems to get added on to the other end.
Gotta find a way to stop that.
But that would mean saying "no" to a whole lot of things I still want to do. And you know, there are only so many years left to work away at the list.
Last night I completed the paper and other requirements for the course I’m taking and sent them off via e-mail to the instructor. She let me know that she got them today.
So another step towards becoming a spiritual director is taken.
I guess the paper, as much as I fret over getting it just right, is only a small part of the work involved. The real work is takng place inside of me. And this work will never be measured by a certificate achieved or passing grades. The changes are mostly on the inside. I want the changes to be profound and significant. Mostly they are little and invisible. But there are subtle changes God is working in me and I want to keep at it. Even without a course, I don’t think I could trun back now.
Next little project – stories for The Companion
