The Business of Living

February 26, 2015

He said it’s okay to name him, so Thank You to my friend Howard Bell for this great line of Lumiere’s in Beauty and the Beast:

“Life is so unnerving for a servant who’s not serving.”

Somehow that cued up one of my favorite Carolyn Arends songs:

One thing I’ve noticed wherever I wander

Everyone’s got a dream he can follow or squander

You can do what you will with the days you are given

I’m trying to spend mine on the business of living

So I’m singing my songs off any old stage

You can laugh if you want, I’ll still say

“Seize the day, seize whatever you can

Cause life slips away just like hourglass sand

Seize the day, pray for grace from God’s hand

Then nothing will stand in your way, seize the day”

What’s your real purpose, and how are you fulfilling it today?
