balance or passion

The question for today (well, yesterday, but I’m a day behind) at the One Year Bible Blog was “… how do you balance working hard in your life with getting proper rest and relaxation? How do you find the balance?”

It’s interesting, because this morning as we were sharing prayer requests at a meeting with some wonderfully imaginative and passion-filled colleagues, one woman shared that she was more interested in praying for passion than she was praying for balance in her life.  She went on to say, if the passion is in the right place, she’ll find the right balance.  I thought that was an interesting perspective.  I have always been more interested, myself, in passion than balance.
