Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16
I’m in the middle of a brief time with my oldest granddaughter, Lily. It just so happened that her parents and brother were all scheduled to be out of town overnight. Lily is a responsible 16-year-old who can’t get her driver’s license until October. Her parents thought I just might enjoy some one-on-one time with her and asked me if I wanted to come.
It was a no-brainer. I am spending the night so that I can drive Miss Lily to and from field hockey practice, with a pedicure on tap as well. Time is precious. Before I know it, Lily will be driving herself all over the place, and two years from now, doing so at a college yet to be determined.
It might seem like a waste of time to spend 5 hours round trip of the road. And I have lots of work to do. Gas is expensive and so is wear and tear on the car. That doesn’t matter, I am making the most of the time and ceasing the opportunity while I can.
Make the most of the precious gift of time ~ Anne
