Like others, I'm paralyzed by my busy-ness and I can so relate to the Journey devotion. Where does my good thoughts go? Life gives me so many opportunities to love others (and opportunities to be on the receiving end of love), and I really want to. When I sit quietly (usually in church), I can make some grand plans in my head. But the thoughts are slippery, they disappear fast along with my good intentions.
Its impossible for me to love on others unless I have made a committment to myself to do so when asked and I have intentionally planed ahead to actually put the plans into action (and it helps to make dinner for my own house too):
Trick number one: fastest dinner ever, made possible by cooking ahead and freezing.
Trick number two: my own slice and bake version of dessert.
