Time

I read a devotional last night that really made me think. I’ve thought about it on and off all day today and thought I should share it with you all. It talked about the winter funk. Being trapped inside, the snowy melty mess, the short hours of sun-light… just about how sometimes we find ourselves wishing away time to get to better weather… or a big event in our lives. I am totally guilty of this. Especially the past week or so since the weather has been TERRIBLE here and it seems as though I’m living in the movie “Ground Hog’s Day”. I am the first one to get stir crazy if we are home for more then a week. I find myself marking the days off on the calendar until I have another rodeo, or a photo shoot, or something “officially” scheduled. The devotion made a great point of how we should thank God daily for time. Just TIME. Not events, not milestones, but time. Instead of wishing away the days that 50 years from now I’ll wish to have back, I should stop and just enjoy TIME. The current time, the present time, every second of it. Wow. That seems so simple, and maybe most people do that, but reading it so clearly stated was a good lesson for me. Just think, if the doctor told me tomorrow that I had six months to live, I would pray for time to creep by… that’s how we should all live regardless… savoring every single fraction of time… just hoping it will creep by. That’s my resolution this year. I have NEVER in my entire life made a resolution. My motto was always “you can’t break what you don’t make”. So, this is a first for me… I resolve to appreciate… no… savor time, and thank God for it daily. Besides, looking at my calendar, starting the first of February through about the end of October I’ll be wishing I had more of it! Did you make any resolutions for 2008?
