Disappearing Time

Hey Girls,

Do you ever feel like time is just going by so quickly? You have so much to do that you can't get it all done in one day? As if there aren't enough hours in a day? I've heard it said that time moves faster the older we get, which really, if you think about it, means we are running out of time faster and faster everyday; there is less and less of it. How would we ever catch up?

I think that's partly why it's important we keep a central perspective that this life isn't about us as much as being about God, how we serve him and do what he calls us to do. I think we often get involved in a lot of extra stuff that God doesn't necessarily mean for us to do. I don't think he desires his children to be stressed out and overworked- why would there be verses on casting our anxiety and fears on him? I think he means for us to take time and rest like he did after creating the world.

So as this summer rushes us by, let's remember to keep in mind the important things and ask God how we should direct our day. After all, he might have an entirely different plan in mind than the one we think we need to follow.

1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

Exodus 33:14 "The LORD replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."

Project Finished!

Hey Girls,

Remember way back when I posted about finishing the projects we start? Well I did it! I finished that blanket that I started long ago using various random pieces of yarn that I had. It turned out to my satisfaction for my first blanket attempt. I would like to try making another, keeping in mind some of the things I learned from making this one. It isn't perfect but it's finished and I like it.

 So what projects have you left to do? Finish any? Make any progress on any? It's good to finish what we start. Sometimes that just doesn't happen and we lose interest but there is a definite satisfaction in having completed a project. I encourage you all to go and follow through, bring a project of your own to completion.

It's kinda like of how God is working on us eh? Bit by bit. And like how His plans for our lives, and the world at large, are gradually coming together, to one day be complete when Jesus returns and gathers us all to him. Just a thought...
