On The Bench/Sitting This One Out

Sweet Alice,
There will be moments in your life when all you can do is sit on the bench and wait it out. This is not an easy thing to do. And from what I can tell about your spirit, it may be very difficult for you.

I would like to be able to say , "Don't worry about it, life is just a game" but life is not a game. 

Life is not about keeping score, life is not about winning and losing, life is not about being number one.

What is life about, you say?


Maybe part of life is about knowing when to sit one out so you can get a better perspective, rest your body, soul and spirit and realizing that being on the bench might be the best place at the time.

Maybe when life gets tough find a bench and sit it out for a while.
This is part of that silence, solitude, contemplative thing I alluded to last week.

Bench Prayer!
Why not?

Then get back in the game.

But it's not a game.
