These thoughts are from SSJE are so very true. There are limits to our energy, time and space. We can only do so much. It is important to know when those limits are reached and do the things we need to survive. If we over do we are no use to anyone.
All of us have parts of our lives that need protection for the simple reason that they are precious. By setting up intentional boundaries on our space and limits on our time, we can create an enclosure that fosters those precious qualities and experiences which the demands of life would otherwise devour.
– Br. James Koester, SSJE
