Time Management anyone or should I say women?

I was reading on a sweet sister's blog about the desire to do what is time wise best for the Lord and I remember so many times in my life, I felt exactly the same way and still do sometimes. We get too busy doing things less important. Especially when we realize this life is temporary.
Here's some thoughts to consider....
* Remember who's in charge.
* Schedule in reverse-put real priorities in pen on your schedule, (ie family time, bible study, date night with Husband) pencil in the less important after that.
* Be, rather than do.
* Get your spouse's thoughts on what can be robbing you of time.
* Be honest about your abilities and limitations. You can't possibly put overlapping , multiple things into one day and do your best at all of them.
* Don't underestimate the time needed when saying yes to ongoing commitments.
* Don't rely on last minute adrenaline rushes to prepare for important events. You might not have it in you due to illness, lack of rest or other unexpected things that happen.
I leave you with this thought:
My Lord and My God, with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in me, I will guard the time you have entrusted to me. "Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you-guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us"2 Timothy 1:14
Didn't our Holy Father entrust us with all we have, including time?
Be blessed!

Those are some good thoughts for today and every day for that matter. Most I need to heed to. Thanks for sharing those.
