I Blinked...

Time has flown...
really it has...
wasn't I just 18 last year...
getting ready to graduate from high school...
getting engaged, then married 6 months later...
Having one baby several years later, then eventually 7 more...
I ponder these things & more...
not everyday...but often.
Today I was thinking about how nice the weather is...
then got to thinking about the things to do this week, next week, this month, this year...
So....we need a balance here...
on what lies behind & what lies ahead....
while consentrating on the present & what needs to be done.
Setting daily goals is always a good start...
Getting out of bed is a good thing to do...
And is the thing we must do each and every day.
Next should be
our time spent with the Lord Jesus Christ in Bible reading and prayer.
Asking the Lord what we should do for the day.
I like to "think" if the Lord wills...we will do such & such today 
Or in the future...
Because sometimes no matter how much we plan to do something,
the Lord Jesus may have something else for us to do.
I have been thinking about the tornado victims...
I am sure they did not get up that morning 
and say:
"Today looks like a good day for my house to be hit by a tornado."
We should plan for the future, but look to the Lord Jesus to guide us.
By putting ourselves and plans aside...
we may see some people that need our help.
People that need to hear about Jesus and how He can save them.
I will be praying for you that read this
and 
those people that you could make a difference in their lives.
Take care and Love to You all,
Mommy 2

I just read this and thank you for reminding me to look around for people to help and not just forge ahead with MY PLAN.
