Time, flowing like a river...

Greetings!  I have been duly chastised by a few friends for not blogging lately, but MAN I sometimes get sooo BUSY!  This has inspired me to write a quick blog about "time management".

Unfortunately, time management is NOT my strong suit - I would probably be 5 minutes late to my own funeral!  And spiritually, I am hard-pressed to think of any nice Bible quote to inspire me on a better path to budgeting my time!   Perhaps one of y'all can point me to a nice scriptural passage on this topic?

Here's the best I could do:

Therefore be very careful how you live – not as unwise but as wise, taking advantage of every opportunity, because the days are evil. For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord’s will is. And do not get drunk with wine, which is debauchery, but be filled by the Spirit....

 I dunno.  I get caught in the same time-trap everytime - on the one hand: "stop and smell the roses".  On the other hand: "spend wisely both time and money" (that's not a famous quote, i just made that one up ).  I prayed on this last night, and the clearest answer I could get was to "measure my day's priorities with a Christian yardstick, and apportion my time accordingly".  So that's pretty much the answer I expected I guess. 

I am confident I will gain maturity in my time-management approach - all it takes, of course, is time .

Well gotta wrap it up here..  Be sure to take some time today to say hello to a neighbor, to hug your children, to admire a funny formation in the clouds, and to wave to a passing total stranger! Priorities, right?

Take care!
