Peace of Sunday Night Frenzy

I remember it best from when I lived and worked in New York. You spent the weekend catching up — often on sleep — and then Sunday evening, you just couldn’t get interested in bed. Instead you accomplished all those things you’d procrastinated on.

Which is all well and good, except for the fact that you didn’t go to bed when you were supposed to, which meant you started your week short of sleep.

But oh, ministers have Monday mornings off if they’re smart. So my frenzy was not going to ruin my morning. And I got so much accomplished. Computer backed up and rebooted. Pesky emails written. over 1000 emails purged. drawers straightened… bed washed and redone for slightly cooler weather. piles of clothes to give away, to toss… All invisible to the outside world but so helpful to living inside my world!

I’m not a maintainer of order. But I can do the blitz! And I did. and hurrah! And here I am, a bit sleepy, but none the worse for wear this morning. Happy week! My Peace this morning, for once, for once will be that of order and organization. Relax! I’ll be over it by tomorrow.
