A Time for Everything…

My son has an out-of-town baseball tournament this weekend.  Rather than dread it, I decided to make it into a mini vacation.  I’m coming to terms with the fact that attitude is everything, so, I better pick a good one.  I don’t know about you, but a weekend out-of-town means that I must clean house before we leave.  Coming home to a clean house is… well, almost magical.

I used to procrastinate. Now that I’m managing everything by myself, I simply don’t have time to procrastinate.  It’s amazing how much one can get done if they just do it.  I’ve had several people say “I don’t know how you do it all.”  Well, it takes getting off my fanny and doing it!  What is that law of physics?… a body in motion stays in motion.  It’s true!

The Bible says that “there is a time for everything.”  There is!  I’ve been a busy bee all week trying to get the house cleaned, work, church, kids to school, their homework, baseball practice, yard work… I could go on (and on), but I’ll spare you.  Surprisingly, I’ve had time to get all these things done.  Even more shocking… I’ve had time to have lunch with a friend, run everyday, play BeJeweled, Words With Friends, mail a package to my husband, watch a few baseball games on tv, and a few other activities, which I consider luxuries.

If you have a problem not getting things done, I ask “what are you doing?”  If the answer is sitting, I suggest you get up!  Simply get up.  It’s truly amazing how much time you will have to do the things you need to do and some things you want to do, if you just get up.

We all have the same number of hours in a day and God says that there is time for everything.  So, what are you putting off?  Get up, get moving.  Let me know how it goes!

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:” Ecclesiastes 3:1
