Saw this on a little devotional flip-chart that was revealing and convicting: "You always have time for that which you place first."
We may say we don't have time to plan and prepare healthy meals, and yet we do have time to sit at the computer scanning through Facebook posts and responding to people we don't even know!
We say we are too busy to take 30 minutes to walk after supper, but we can find time to watch an hour or two of TV or cuddle up with a favorite book.
We say we can't fit food-journaling into our day, but we spend the same amount of time working the newspaper crossword puzzle.
Priorities: I was thinking of this subject this very week. It dawned on me that it's easy to see my priorities - they are what I spend the bulk of my time on. Whether they reflect what my
priorities SHOULD be or not, the way I do use the waking hours God has graciously given me shows what my priorities ACTUALLY are.

Picked these babies from my son's garden today. Can't wait to cut them up with some zucchini, tomatoes and onion, and nuke them with a bit of salt, pepper, parmesan and light margarine for a healthy side dish! (Plus, it freezes well for re-runs later.)
What's your favorite fresh-from-the-garden dish?

I've had fun recently crafting some greeting cards. With loads of pretty papers, cutters, rubber stamps, tools and a creative bent, this is something I just love doing, and recipients get a blessing when they receive one, which adds to my pleasure!
While working on this set, I decided to have a couple of workshops for fellow church members, friends and family. We'll make valentines as well as other kinds, and I hope to get some extras done to send or bring to those who might need a smile to brighten their day!
You can steal my idea...I won't mind a bit!

I wanted to find ways to save money to add to our church's Christmas mission offering, so I decided to recycle fronts of cards from last year, place these on cardstock, and add greetings inside. I ran out, and since I had found some cards that were made to add text to (for oh-so cheap at our local thrift store), I decided to try my hand at that. It took a bit of time to create my thoughts and stretch the text just so, but I'm pleased with the results.
Do you have any special crafts you do this time of year? It's great to keep our hands busy, right?
(In case you can't make out the lower message, here it is: "Hope you experience many Christmas blessings, and that you will join us in taking time to quietly reflect on the meaning of Christmas: God took on flesh to show a weary, needy world His love, forgiveness and power. He's still doing the same today in hearts that will allow it!)
