Sometimes, it seems as though we don’t have enough time.

We’re too busy.

There’s too much going on.

And now, so much that we love to do is on hold.  Concerts, sporting events, coffee with friends.

All this time is wasted, perhaps much of the rest of the year won’t be available for normal activities.

But that’s OK.

You’re not a perfect leader, leaving you open to criticism.

You don’t always get it right as a parent.

It’s humbling to have to rely on the government to make decisions that will significantly impact your finances over the next six months.

It’s humbling to have to restrain your normal social activities in the interest of public health.

It’s humbling to not be in control, just when you thought your future was nicely planned out.

Will it be the rising death toll within our communities?

Will it be the long list of restrictions?

Or will it be the time spent with immediate family?

Right now, it seems as though a lot of things that we usually take for granted are limited.

Our ability to interact socially.

Our capacity to connect with a simple shake of the hand.

St Felgild of Lindisfarne once prayed,

Calm me, O Lord, as you stilled the storm.

Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm.

No matter what is happening in the world around you.

No matter what this means for your work situation.

No matter how you’re feeling inside or how the people around you are feeling.

Keep your head up.

Today is a momentous day for me as it’s this blog’s 10 year anniversary.

It’s quite a milestone for this humble little site and whilst this is still quite a niche blog, I’m proud of the achievement.

Over the past 10 years, I have written over 2,600 posts and had over 2.7M views from all around the world (except North Korea).

I just want to say thanks for the opportunity to share my thought with you guys.  I have had some incredibly loyal readers and I am grateful to you each.
