Whose time?

So often believers say "I really need to make more time for God."

But no!! That is the wrong way to say it. It is all God's time -- we are the ones borrowing it to do other things.

-Mark Cahill

"So teach [us] to number our days,
that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom."
Psalms 90:12

Funny you should mention it... I've been thinking lately how often I exclaim over how fast time goes. It hit me. I should stop making my conversations sound like this "Wow, I just can't believe it's March already! Time just goes so fast." I just need to grab it and make the mostest of it.
Love ya!
Come home soon!

What an important thing to remember that! I am always caught up with lots of things to do, and having other things that I want to do (especially now that I'm preparing to photograph a wedding!), but it is important not to do what I want to or what I think I maybe should do, but to just stop and ask God what He wants me to do. I really needed that reminder... thanks!
