Not A Slacker

Ramble Post Alert:

For the record, I am not forgetting to blog… or being lazy. Life has transformed over the past year and a half since I began this blog journey, and I am embracing the journey.

I am making more time to write fresh messages to share when I speak at places where I have been invited. I am working on one new book with focused effort, and another one here and there. On top of that, our family has an online home decor shop, and we are committed to making that succeed as well.

Then, there is family. Sure we’re together most of the time, but I love spending focused attention on each one each day when I’m home.

Obviously, my time alone with the Lord each day is an absolute necessity for me to be all I can be and do all I can do. I wouldn’t trade it.

Don’t worry… I’m not planning to quit blogging. I’m just not going to stress if I don’t get in five amazing posts per week. In fact, I’d feel good at this point with 2-3 really solid posts per week.

We each have the same number of hours to live each day. We each choose how we are going to spend most of those hours. And sometimes we have to re-allocate some of our hours so that we can accomplish our dreams and goals.

I encourage you to take time to write down what you are doing with your 24 hours each day, and see if you might need to give some important areas of life some of your valuable time… even if you need to take it from something you enjoy. If you’ve been willing to read this far when there was clearly a “ramble post alert” at the beginning, comment on the post or shoot me an email. I’d love to hear about any changes you discovered you need to make with how you use the time you’ve been given.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, one of my priorities is a good night’s rest…

  1. Love that you are prioritizing! If we don’t do it God will do it for us! It says in Psalm 23 he makes me lie down in green pastures….. Oh the times he has stopped my Martha self in my tracks. LOL
