A Precious Resource-Time

O.K. O.K. O.K., I know it's been quite a while since my last post, but I have been really busy. To the few of you faithful, stop by everyday readers ( Miss Wanda) I am sorry. I am like all of you, a very busy Woman!!
With homeschooling, learning the new skill of canning and preserving food, (I've made bread and butter pickles and homemade jams. I've mastered peach, blueberry and raspberry!) serving my Husband and family, serving in our local New Testament Church in several ministries I might add and then raining as "The Coupon Queen", I don't have much time for blogging.
It's not that I don't have much to say, God has been blessing my family greatly in the area of scoring great coupon savings recently, I just can't seem to find the time to write it all down. I have even taken a few pictures to post of my great deals, but that takes time and a lot of it. Time is the one thing that we are all equal in. We all have been given 24 hours in each day. No more, No less. The key is in finding the balance of using our time wisely and productively. As for Me, I look to the Lord and His Word for the guidance in my life.
If I have spent all day cutting coupons, scoring great deals and then blogging about them, but have not met the needs of my family, I am out of balance. If I have saved a ton of money in multiple trips to CVS, Price Chopper and K-Mart for double coupons, but the board of Health has condemned my home, my priorities are out of balance. If I am so busy scouring the Internet for new deals, but can not take the time to encourage a friend in the Lord, then things are out of balance. I mention these things because some days I get out of balance. It is only when I am walking in the Spirit, seeking the Lord in the planning of my day and reading His Word Daily, that I am able to achieve balance in my life. If there be any balance in my life it is God's grace and mercy, of which I am so thankful for. I truly enjoy blogging, but not at the expense of the "better" things to use my time for. I 'm still around and will post when I can. I want to be frugal with one of the most precious resources God has given us and that is our time. I pray blessings for you all!! Michelle
