Catching seems to be a common theme these days.

The kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea that brings in a haul of all kinds. When it is full, the fishermen haul it ashore; then, sitting down, they collect the good ones in a basket and throw away those that are no use. Matthew 13:47-49

Catching an illness has been on the forefront of peoples minds and we’ve tried to be as careful as possible amongst the confusion that leaks from some in positions of power. Catch my drift?

Catching a tan if you’ve been in England through July has been near impossible. All the wet weather and grey skies can impact on how people feel.

Catching some time between working from home and family time has been an interesting journey.

But amongst all these catches, do we stop to take a moment often enough to be still? To be prayerful? Have our moment amongst the madness? To think about when we’re pulled to shore?

I’ve started reading a very interesting book lately by Joan Chittister called Wisdom Distilled From The Daily. I’ve only just started the 2nd chapter but already it’s making me think about how much time I truly stop to just be. Catch some time with with my thoughts and prayers. I think the title of the book says a lot. Catching that wisdom through the droplets of modern, busy life.

I hope whatever is happening in your life at the moment, you are able to catch some time to be still. Time to appreciate what we have and the good we can do for others.
