Make the Most of the Time you've Been Given

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Not much sunshine today, because the sky is overcast and rain is predicted some time or other. We need the rain, for sure, but the weather has warmed up and it is already 70 plus and climbing. I kept the warm blanket on the bed last night and was glad I did. It felt good!

After doing a few chores around the house I drove over to the park and took a short walk on the sidewalk. The air had warmed up and I did not need a sweater, even though it was a bit cooler because of the breeze and many trees over there. I saw a very white ibis silhouetted against the heavy shrubs and trees across the water, looking very Floridaish and some very wet turtles sunning themselves on the banks of the weir. God is good!

From the little devotional book Knowing God:

Make the Most of the Time You have Been Given
Hard work means prosperity, only fools idle away their time.

Proverbs 17:11 NLT

Time is a nonrenewable gift from God. But sometimes, we
treat our time here on earth as if it were not a gift at all. We may
be tempted to invest our time in trivial pursuits and mindless
diversions. But our Father in heaven wants us to do more...
much more.

Are you one of those people who puts things off until the last
minute? Do you waste time doing things that don't matter
very much while putting off the important things until its
too late to do the job right?If so, it's now time to start making
better choices.

It may seem like you've got all the time in the world to do the
things you need to do , but time is shorter than you think. Time
here on earth is it or lose it!

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
