"As pride sometimes is hid under humility, idleness if often covered by turbulence and hurry." Samuel Johnson as found at the Circe BlogWithout order there is less accountability because there is no standard to show where you are falling short, what you have skipped, etc. Lack of order is dis-order and, in my case, is marked by "turbulence and hurry" with no substance to it.
I hope that my life will be more like this:
Though she was not by any means a wealthy woman and was busy all the time herself, she had a wisdom that spread order and beauty around her. For me, Miss Ora's was a place of rest. from Wendell Berry's Hannah Coulter (yes a fiction book!)What an amazing description. So, the bright spot for me this week was that we did a MAJOR clean up of our house over the weekend. We worked together and there is more physical order in our house and I am glad for it. This is a huge challenge for my husband and I. We are both NT's on the Myers Briggs and live out of our heads and often don't even recognize the craziness until we see it through someone else's vantage point. Now the challenge is to maintain some order and beauty.
So, what have you done to bring a little bit more order to your life? Are you linking order to beauty and rest? Do you need wisdom to know how to order your life? I sure do!
