|I’ve always loved this ribbon.
Glad to find a great use for it!
I have a real problem. For a long time, while working on my writing, I would misplace my thumb drive. It’s so tiny, and so easy to leave . . . well, anywhere. But it holds all of my writing. If I lose it, I’m really stuck. (Note: Now I use Dropbox also to back up my work; I’m slowly learning to utilize some of the modern conveniences available.)
While it should have been obvious to me, I never thought to attach the thumb drive to something larger and more visible until just a couple of weeks ago.
Do you ever feel that the small things sometimes just seem to slip away? Even if they’re something that you once or even still hold dear?
|Fed by His Word|
Spending time with God in His Word is one of those things for me. I know how important it is, how vital to my life as a Christ-follower, as a wife, as a mom, as a Sunday School Teacher, as anything. But isn’t it easy to let it slip away? To be misplaced?
A huge help for me lately has been learning to attach that to something that I do every day: breakfast. Maybe that wouldn’t work for everyone, but I have found a great deal of help in reading the Word while I eat breakfast with my family. If I find a helpful gleaning for the kids, I can share it then. And I almost always eat breakfast. Making Bible-ingesting as big a part of my routine as food-ingesting has helped me be sure not to let it slip away.
There are other things I want to learn to keep: letter-writing, walking with my family, keeping the dishes washed. In time, I hope to reclaim all of those, and to attach them to ribbons of their own.
What are some of the little things that you would like to keep hold of?
