I'm looking forward to a chore schedule, a running schedule, time with loved ones, and time to myself. I really skimped on all of those things over the summer. (Except the running. The weeks I didn't run were not stellar weeks for pastoral care on my part.)
Does a schedule bring relief for you, or does it feel like a burden? Are you feeling burned-out by monotony, or are you longing for consistency?
God, thank you for your presence when
life feels completely upside-down.
Sustain us in times of both chaos and of restlessness,
and show us where to find your joy and peace
regardless of our circumstances.
