In Others’ Words: Row, Row, Row Your Boat
There are days that are easy, when the proverbial wind is at my back. No real effort seems to be needed on my part. The words flow … or the To Do list disappears in almost magical fashion.
And then there are those other kinds of days. You know the kind I’m talking about. It’s all row, row, row my boat … not a single breeze to refresh me. No wind to do the work for me.
And that’s life.
Sometimes it’s wind … and sometimes it’s work.
I can be thankful for the one and I can grumble about the other, but really, shouldn’t I be thankful for both the wind and the work?
Sometimes I remind myself that there will come a time in my life when I will have nothing to do — or at least I will have much less to do. I will wish for the deadlines, the long days of writing, the “how ever am I going to accomplish all of this” pace of life.
Life is a mix of wind and work … being thankful for the time when there is a strong wind in our sails, yes, but also thankful for those days when God gives us strength to pick up the oars and row our boats.
In Your Words: How’s it going for you right now? Is the wind serving, or are you row, row, rowing your boat? What gives you strength to take the oars?
