That’s a quote from our pastor when we lived in Florida. It’s true. Few good things happen unless we plan for and work toward achieving them.
For example, Grandpa and Grandma’s night wouldn’t happen too often if we only did it when it was convenient or when we thought of it. My parents have it scheduled for once a month on a Thursday. There have been months that it didn’t happen due to trips or illness, but the beauty of having a specific time, is it will happen more often than if it hadn’t been scheduled.
Dad and Mom try to have a special activity they do, so after dinner last Thursday, out came the puzzles. Mom has collected an amazing assortment of puzzles when the younger five were growing up, so it makes for a perfect grandparent puzzle stash. The girls each had puzzles suited for their ability, and it was a sweet time.
So, what can you think of that you desire to do but don’t have a specific time for? Schedule it, and make it happen.
The girls picked blueberries the other day, so they were sorting and washing them while the grandchildren activity was going on. It’s cute to see at Bible time the little ones pick who they’re going to sit with.
“Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous:
and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.”
