“Margin, the space that once existed between ourselves and our limits . . . .” Richard A. Swenson

Today. Put back the margin in your life.

Walk. Slowly.
Life’s about the moments and relationships,
Not simply getting from A to B.

Do. Less.
But do it well, with all your might.
With great joy. Do it right.

Don’t. Check. Your. Messages.
Look at me when I'm talking to you.
See? I’m here. I'm not virtual. I’m Real.

Delay. On. One. Decision.
Here's a tip: Pause before you answer.
Pray before you "enter."

Holiness. Is. Wholeness.
Sleep seven hours. Stop at the florist. Take a walk
Have time for people. Be kind to yourself. Love God.

Today. Put back the margin in your life.

love the ocean - God made it for Himself

About Me

In the Old Testament in the Bible, there was a man named Jacob who "wrestled with God and man." He wouldn't let God go until God answered his prayers. God admired that and renamed him Israel, "the one who fought or wrestled and prevailed". He fought with man--his inner man--and conquered his own weaknesses. He's my hero. He is what I hope God and man see me to be.
