How do I balance the two…make sense of it all? Maybe the key lies in the word “balance.” A bit of both: normal and new is required to equalize the scales. Too much normal leads to boredom. Too much new causes me to not appreciate new when I do see/live it.
“My insides are turned inside out, specters of death have me down. I shake with fear; I shudder from head to foot.
Who will give me wings; I ask “wings like a dove?” Get me out of here on dove wings; I want some peace and quiet. I want a walk in the country. I want a cabin in the woods. I’m desperate for a change from rage and stormy weather” (Psalm 55:4–8).
