A friend recently mentioned to me that she was so busy all the time and yet she is just plain bored to tears! That threw me for a ride. Certainly we all have things to busy ourselves with and busy work. So what kind of value do we choose to place on the things we must do? How can we possibly be bored if we are connected? I find that if I pray in the midst of the busy work, I find real meaning and value in the task at hand. Do not be distracted by your tasks but be drawn closer to the Lord as you are able to do His work, however boring it may be. It is a blessing.
