There have been many changes over the summer at our home. One being my oldest working long hours most days away from home. After a week of that I really started to ponder the concept of time. My time with him will only be less and less from now on. I have been a stay at home mom and even homeschooled him his whole life but I cant help but wish I would’ve spent more time with him.
I have laid awake nights trying to weed my life of things I waste time on so I have more time with my 8 children. This life has so much to offer us to keep us busy… But why do we want to be busy? People say to me whenever I am out, “Wow you must be busy with all those children”. Well yes I am busy busy busy…. but when I reflect on my days, I am still not content with the way I spend all of my time.
Reflecting on time wasting will last beyond my youngest leaving the home I am sure. But today being sure my time is used as God would have me use it is important and I must be obedient.
If Jesus were with me everyday (He is :)) would I use my time different?
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
