Well, hello there! Good Monday morning to each of you. How was your weekend? I hope you had an opportunity to get some rest yet did some things that you’ve been needing/wanting to do. That is exactly what took place in the Watson household. We were able to check a few things off of our “To-Do List” and squeeze in a nap or two so that we could refuel. On that note, lets dive into this weeks blog topic of time, shall we?
Have you ever thought about time as a resource? To be honest, I don’t think that I have always thought of it as such; however, that is exactly what it is. In fact, I would say that it is our most precious resource in that we only have a certain amount of it each day, week, month and year, etc. . Once it is gone, it’s gone. Unlike jobs and/or money, it cannot be replaced.
With that in mind, why do we tend to take it for granted? We say things like, ” I’ll do it tomorrow’.” Or, ” When “this” happens, I’m going to do “this.” The truth is, we don’t know that tomorrow will be a part of our reality or that we will be physically able to do that “thing” we’ve been wanting to do when the time is “right”. On top of that, time seems to be passing faster than the speed of light. The picture above is a prime example of this. As I was preparing to type this blog post and looking through my photos, I came across it. I actually took that photo 6 months ago and published it on the Faith Filled Traveler Facebook page. It seems like yesterday when I was standing in front of my desk with outstretched arms taking the photo, yet it was at the first of the year.
My point? Time is a resource that the Lord has gifted each of us with that the majority of us are unconsciously taking for granted. We forget that we have a limited supply of it. That said, this week I would like to dig a little deeper into the topic of time and share some ways that we can begin to manage it and be more present in our day to day. Will you join me? I sure hope so. Let’s plan on meeting here again tomorrow morning and on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thefaithfilledtraveler/ ) until then! Make it a great day!
