Since setting up this blog, I've been trying to figure out how to reduce the enormous margin on the left side of the page. Truth is, I'm guilty of that in my life...filling the white space with things that end up leaving me crowded, crammed, busy, exhausted. On the other hand, I thrive when I rediscover margin.
Case in point: Two nights ago, Tiffany and I found ourselves on the back porch, each reading our respective books (ME: God is the Gospel; HER: Same Kind of Different As Me). Storms rolled into Arlington and, as the torrent of rain washed my backyard, we enjoyed an unusual peace. Relaxation in the middle of a rainstorm. Enjoying life while lightning flashed around us. That's the way I want to live. Jesus said, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest” (Mark 6:31). While life thunders about me, I continue to learn the importance of margin to give me room for real life and rest in Christ.
