Sixty minutes an hour

Today I’m over at (in)courage, discussing the speed of life. And how I’m silly when I wish it would go by faster. From the post:

“I still yearn for the day when there are no more diapers to change. When all my kids can read to themselves. When the walls aren’t splattered with the evening’s dinner.

“But really? That’s exchanging one gift for another. These days I have now, they are precious, just like the ones I’ll have in a few years. Wishing them away is to miss the beauty right in front of me, encrusted countertop and all.

“’We steal if we touch tomorrow. It is God’s.’ -Henry Ward Beecher”

You can say no to constant busyness.

To lead your family with peace, you need to know your NOs and YESes. But what are they?

Like Your Life can help you figure them out.
