Rungs on a Ladder

I discovered this beautiful, thought-provoking post early this morning, as I pondered the day which stretched out before me. I prayerfully considered how to prioritize my impossibly long to-do list, knowing that I cannot fit all I would like into the next 24 hours. How do I choose? Where do I start? What do I leave undone??

"Our choices add up.

Habits into hours, decisions into days, lists into a life.

The way in which we live our moments, our choices for the gift of the next 24 hours, are rungs on a ladder. The rungs take us somewhere. These moments are rungs scaling each and every day . . . making a life."

To explore these thoughts with gifted writer, Ann Voskamp, climb to the next rung -- here.

Hi Elizabeth, I love that post you are referring to. I have printed it up twice in the last few weeks. I just don't want to put it away. I know there is something there for me, so I wait on the Lord.

Thanks for putting it in my face again ;-)

I love the thought you chose to quote from the post you referred to. I printed the post off to mark and better meditate on its content. I definately want to share some thoughts with my children tonight at family devotions. I think I needed that today....thanks! Love you!

When you mentioned your blog on my blog, I was thinking you haven't written much later. So I came here to check. Oh my goodness! I've missed a lot! Somehow your blog disappeared from my blog reader. I wonder what else I'm missing? (Btw, you're back on my reader.)

Thank you for sharing this! My thoughts have been swirling in this direction, too. I pray, "God, I know You've given me enough time to do what You have called me to do. But WHAT are Your expectations for me? What is Your call? What can I let go? What needs pushed out of the schedule to make room for what's truly important?"

Every day, I feel overwhelmed. Does it really have to be that way?

Anyway, thanks... :)
