Spoiler alert. You will be let down to some degree by the content that follows a title like that. Anyway, hope you enjoy –
Hectic schedules of day-to-day. Standard chores and not much room for much else. The hustle and bustle of modern life can take us far away from the things that give us joy, and give our lives meaning – beyond the daily routine of “have-to’s”.
No matter how much we talk about down-sizing, de-cluttering, or going minimalist, there is a large amount of gear that I just can’t get rid of. I was able to tap into my “why” for this today.
Made my first hunting trip in our new surroundings, and experienced some great new things. It was good to get back to something familiar too. A duck hunt similar in some ways, but so different in most. Looking back on my mental approach to the trip – I was simply happy to go. I had little expectation for the outcome for the day. I did know was heading out to do something I love, while putting the details in the hands of Our Father. His will for the day would be my sufficiency.
Long story short, it was a great day. Terrible weather (a good thing for a duck hunter) plenty of shooting, beautiful birds, and great company. Seems like a simple idea: if we put our passions squarely into the hands of He who gave them to us in the first place, can we go wrong?
Don’t forget the simple things that have given your life meaning. And don’t forget who gave Meaning to your life.
