Busy, busy, busy! It seems to be the story of our culture. But I’m working hard to not be too busy for the really important things. Not to be too busy for hugs. Not too busy for words of affirmation to a teen in need. Not too busy to notice the hurting folks all around.
And not to busy to be thankful to God for all the wonderful little treasures he blesses me with every day.
