well spent

October 7, 2011

Praise be to the One who delights in giving precious gifts–treasures that we could never deserve but that are given generously . . . freely.
After small group this morning I felt the “should” of getting busy with preparations for the next day’s lessons. But I was not ready for it. Instead, longing for beauty, I grabbed my camera and headed for the rooftop. Those of you who have known my blog for a long time may recall the fact that I find “working” clotheslines beautiful in their functional simplicity. So today, on the roof, I spied my bit of beauty in the form of this clothesline.
Then, walking back, I was snagged for a spontaneous outing. Schoolday preparations were set aside for this one afternoon, and instead the day was spent soaking up new sights and sounds:
A market of handicrafts, and of people watching . . . a few satisfying purchases . . . socializing over coffee with some very good folks.
A gift of a day. Wasting time? Perhaps. But time well spent.
