Flexible and Responsible

This week has lots of moving parts.  My kids are finishing out the schoolyear, taking finals and doing work to get moving toward Summer.  My daughter is graduating high school this week, so we’re hosting a graduation party at the end of the week.  Additionally, there are some things at work that need some flexibility because of deadlines and workload.  So all of this is requiring me to be flexible to adapt to these moving parts.

At the same time, being flexible doesn’t mean I get a free pass to be irresponsible.  Indeed, being flexible lets me do what’s responsible in different and creative ways.  So I’m adjusting my schedule, shifting days and events, so that I can continue to be responsible and attentive to the things that are priorities in my life:  God, family and work.  With God’s help, we can be both responsible and flexible in ways we don’t always consider 🙂

Happy Monday to you!

Late or Early?

Each of us have different perspectives about “on time.”  For some folk, “on time” means 10minutes before the appointment / event.  Other people, “on time” is anything +/- 10minutes of the appointment.  And this can make a rub between folk who have these different perspectives, as well as how we perceive God’s involvement with time. 

Consider that not only are God’s ways higher than our ways & also God’s timing is far superior to our timing. And with this thinking, God is neither late nor early, but always in divine time, giving what we need, when we need it. God’s timing is always perfect!
