Plans Fall With the Leaves on the Trees

What rules and laws do I have in my life?

Did I put them there for a good reason or are they there and instead make life unnecessarily harder?

Is a certain goal worth pursuing or is it one I might consider changing or giving up?

So often I make plans or set deadlines that aren't necessary and put extra stress on my life.  There are things that need to get done and there are deadlines to be met, but how many of them are truly required and how many do I set for myself that cause more stress and anxiety?


I purpose to evaluate my plans. 

Prioritize.

Simplify.

We only have today once, what shall I do with it?

What does God want me to do with it?

Busyness Shmisyness

I like to make up my own words.  

I also use grammar to my advantage and do whatever I please with it.  

When my husband and daughter saw the title for this post they both looked at me with that eye-brow down, questioning and yet knowing look on their faces.

Sometimes they think I am off my rocker and I must admit there are many people who agree with that diagnosis – you know – the off-your-rocker disease.

Yet, most of the time people think I have jumped on the band-wagon for a better life, one not full of strife, sadness, busyness, and wastefulness.

I am known for taking each day as a gift and using it wisely.

How time flies.  Thankfully it is not as long as a fly’s.
 (There’s I go again, helping along the “Nuts” diagnosis.)

I watch people and I wonder what motivates them.  When we are on our death bed will we feel that the life we lived was worthwhile?  What did we spend our time on?  What did we accomplish – no matter how small it may seem?

Maybe it is the small things we accomplish that are the most important!

There are so many things that have no eternal value.  
With eternity in mind – we should plan our 
seconds
minutes 
hours 
days
weeks 
months
years
and life.


Our time here on earth may be training for – forever.  
While we may be here for a time we will be there forever.

While here today – there someday.
