Pause To Reflect

Jon Swanson wrote something the other day that caused me to pause and reflect. Maybe because I was trained as a percussionist as a youth, but I have a feel for patterns and rhythms. Jon talked about the rhythm of God in Genesis 1.

God created something. Then he paused, considered what was done, and pronounced it good. At a higher level, he created six “days” and then paused on the seventh.

We rush from task to task on our Getting Things Done to do lists. Check one off and rush to the next. Breathless. Focused on work.

Have we lost our rhythm? The rhythm of a day from rising to bed time? The rhythm during a day of task and reflect? The rhythm of a week of actually having times during the seven to pause and reflect? The rhythm of a month? a year? a life?
