Taking a first step, even a small one...

The busier I am the messier my desk, my office, my living quarters, my kitchen become! The fall is a very busy time in parish life and the venues where I live and work reflect that in their disarray. And, of course, the messier it gets, the more difficult it is to begin the process of bringing some order to the chaos. As you know, this dynamic applies in many areas of our lives...

So today I took a first step, a small one. I cleaned off the surface of my desk at home, pitching piles of paper no longer of any value and putting in their place some books and cd's. It's only a beginning, a small one - it's not even a large desk - but it's a beginning. In a while I'll be in the kitchen and I'm hoping to do for the table what I did for my desk: cleaning, clearing - it's cleansing for the soul. How about you? Are the places, circumstances, situations in your life in need of a first step, even a baby step in the right direction? I know... that first step isn't easy but it's the necessary one...

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

Take that first step - today!

The hard part is keeping pace...
