Routine Requirements

I seriously need to develop some routines into my life. I tend to resist the constraints of routine. I like to live in a free and flexible manner. But, although it is appealing, it is not necessarily wise or healthy.

 

No matter that I don't have to set an alarm clock, catch the school bus, clock in at an office or have dinner promptly at six...there should still be some Routine Requirments in my life. I have the greatest of intentions. But, I don't always follow through. ::sigh::

 

Our sweet little Nanny Goat is helping me to realize the importance of routines. If I want her to produce well, I must be regular with her milking routine. No haphazard, catch you tomorrow or today we milk in morning, tomorrow in the evening.

 

I've noticed if I don't do my morning Bible Study and devotion...it often gets overlooked as the day's busy-ness increases. That should be a Routine Requirement. The same with exercise, if I'm waiting for that to 'just' happen, well it usually doesn't.

 

I'm going to be doing some thinking about the Routine Requirments in my life. What are they? What are the priorities of my days? How can I fine tune them and be responsible and accountable without losing the joy of spontaneity that I so enjoy!

 

Have a great day friends!

Good morning Stephanie, I know what you are saying re: routine. Right now I am working on Loretta's quilt and I'm barely doing the minimum around here. The quilt is slow going as I'm making up the design as I go. It's really through the grace of God, and I'm getting excited about it. I'll post pictures when it's done. I'm using your prayers in each corner of the quilt and the latest one will go somewhere??? God will show me. This is such a priviledge to work on it. I pray and sing hymns as I sew.

I can't wait to start exploring this site. But, right now my priority is the quilt. Take care. Talk to you soon.

Love,

Marilyn

Marilyn, Thank you for the work you are doing. I was thinking of

Tabitha aka Dorcas from the Scriptures as I was thinking of your committment to doing good deeds. She is mentioned in Acts 9. You are blessing so many people just like she did with her seamstress abilities. God bless you abundatnly for your faithfulness! ((((MomM))))
