I'm still on the gerbil wheel of life. My husband always says, "I'll rest when I'm dead." The Bible tells us, "Be still and know that I am God"~Psalm 46:10. It is so important to stop and be still, as we wait and listen for God, and to know His presence in our life....When things are bad or when things are good. If we always have the music playing, the TV on, or are busy running or being sidetracked by one or more of the distractions that are so readily available....tell me how can we hear Him..how can we really know Him?? I must ask myself this question too.
More questions I ask myself...
Am I so busy that I miss the really important things..I really should say~am I missing the important people in my life...first~God and then my loved ones...and the other people that God places in my life.
Relationships are what we are made for...God desires relationship with us...our loved ones (hopefully) desire relationship with us...our children (if we have them) need relationship with us...don't miss out on this one..time passes quickly..and then they will have a life of their own..invest in relationships..TIME...this is how you do it...spend time with God...pray, read your Bible...listen...and ask questions
spend time with the people you love....ask questions...make a list...

p.s. when you find out something your children are interested in...be interested also...they love when you share their interest...even if it is just listening...
