Are You Caught Up?
Posted by Brandi Wilson
I’m pretty slow when it comes to email… if my response requires more than two sentences I’ll probably let the email set for a few days, possibly even weeks, before sitting down to answer. Just ask Lori, I’m sure it’s why she prefers to call me rather than email me.
Needless to say most of my emails responses start with “So sorry I’m slow in responding…”. A few weeks back I was once again replying to an email and following my apology I happened to use the phrase “catching up.” I have to say the response I received back made me laugh. It was something to the effect of…
Good luck catching up. I’ve been a pastor’s wife close to 30 years and my youngest child is 23 and catching up still seems like the impossible.
Honestly, I really needed to hear her words. I like to feel “caught up” and on top of things. But when I pause and think about life I do stay “caught up” where it’s important. I stay “caught up” with my kids and “caught up” with my husband. Relationally I do pretty well staying “caught up.”
So I think what I’m beginning to realize is that I need to focus on being “caught up” in the areas that matter…. family, friends, relationship with God, church family.
Praying for each of you today… praying you’re “caught up” in the areas that matter.
