Spiritual Life: Take time out to contemplate life

PUBLISHED: 08:00 23 September 2017


August and holidays seems so far away as we resume the hussle and bussle of everyday life

Children to be taken to school, work and jobs to be done. Where did that peaceful summer go? We need times in our lives when rest and relaxation are the order of the day. Not so easy to do with other people around. Just as we are made to sleep, to recharge our batteries that way, so we are called on to rest.

This gives us time to contemplate, to reflect on ourselves, on some of the big questions of life. Is there a God? Why are we here? Is there anything after death? It is all too easy to be too busy to think on these things. Still remember to take time out from your schedule to reflect and ponder on some of the big questions of life.
