The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Seize the day, make the most of every opportunity that presents itself. Hold plans loosely, be willing to change plans when an opportunity presents itself. Don't be bound by routine, be sensitive to the leading of the spirit, make relationships a priority. These are things we have learned these last several months. Things that we thought were important.... not so important anymore. What does this look like in our lives...well working less, husband and I make plans to spend time together instead of just letting it happen, house is not as clean because I would rather go to lunch with a friend, grand kids welcome anytime....we adjust our schedules if needed. The days I work, well my schedule is pretty much set then, but there can still be opportunities in the work place, an opportunity to listen, to encourage, to be a light. Life for any of us can change in a moment and we need to live our life with this perspective. Don't wait for the someday...seize the day...make a difference today.
"Now listen, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money. Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes" James 4:13-14
