Some describe this week
as extra time or overtime.
It’s the space between
Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
It’s a week like no other in the year.
Between the end and the beginning.
We’ve had the busyness
in the build up to Christmas,
and soon we will be back to
ordinary life at the start of January.
But before then, there’s a space for us,
for the world is busy in its own places.
This is our week to step back,
rest, reflect, rethink, reorganise,
refocus, restructure and regain
a sense of all that is important to us.
And to use this extra time to guide
the next part of our journey.
