OBLIGATIONS - July 27, 2006

A summer vacation is a glorious time, a time of no obligations, no responsibilities, a time for leisurely meals, a time to read, and a time to observe the interaction of grandchildren.

For a fleeting moment on the last night of our vacation, I watch the sun set and the moon rise over the ocean and wish it could go on forever.

Then, after the return home and the laundry finally caught up, I look forward to the mail, phone messages, pulling weeds from the flowers, and even the hustle and bustle of extra cooking for grand-children, who are doing farm work this summer. I like helping with the Chronicle again and knowing what is happening in our county.

I heard a pastor say, “Every time I baptize an infant, the parents have expressions of joy, even though they are facing food bills, medical expenses, clothing allowances, late night worries and endless responsibilities.” He said, “It is not our freedoms that keep us alive, but our obligations.”

When I feel overwhelmed with varied concerns, I try to remember his words. I am thankful for the challenges and problems that are in my life. Sometimes, I think, “Enough. I can’t handle anything else.” Then I realize, they keep me alive and concerned about the people in my life, near and far. I am still here for a reason!
