From Mass

"

"Come now, you rich, weep and wail over your impending miseries.
Your wealth has rotted away, your clothes have become moth-eaten,
your gold and silver have corroded,
and that corrosion will be a testimony against you;
it will devour your flesh like a fire.
You have stored up treasure for the last days."


I am very fortunate to have the job and career I do.  It has provided a lot of stability for my family.  And, it is one avenue where I do get to help others.  Please do not get me wrong, I also do a variety of things to try to help and give back to my community.  I volunteer at all sorts of community service events, donate to charity, give a lot of my time for other parts of the community.  But, as I suspect many of us feel, I never really feel like I do enough to help, but at the same time I feel exhausted a lot of the time by what I am doing.   The above in italics was from the second reading at mass this weekend.  It is hard to figure out how to proceed in life a lot of the time.

You do more than many do so don't sweat it.

Thank you for saying that, BBC. I appreciate it. Though, I do think if I planned better, I could do more. I am lazy, though, especially about trying to use my time efficiently.

using your time efficiently?

doing nothing or just reading a book is a great way to reduce your carbon foot print.
