Welcome back for the 2011 Spring Semester at UNCG!
I know that break went by very quickly. Hopefully you had an opportunity to spend time with some of your loved ones, slow down and reflect on 2010. The older we get, the more our lives fill with responsibilities, stresses, and the faster our days seem to go. Time for reflection is not built into life. If you don’t make it – it will not be there. Often at moments where things become overwhelming for Jesus, the scriptures tell us that he took time away, to slow down and be in the presence of His father. This semester remember that it is the time that we slow down and think, and pray, that will define us as much as the actions we take after. Fred Rogers, better known as Mr. Rogers once wrote, “You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are. ” Slow down and perhaps discover I little bit about who you are.
