Time {A Bigger Picture Moment}

August is approaching, wait it’s already here! Its fast arrival has only made me realize how fast time is flying by! Soon my boys will be approaching their 4th and 2nd birthdays and party planning will be in the works! As fun as party planning is and all the fun holidays that come with the arrival of fall and winter, I still get overwhelmed with the things cluttering our lives…from the merciless bills and unending daily chores to the trivial TV shows that we have convinced ourselves in to thinking we can’t miss! When I think about all these things crowding our lives a little quote one of my facebook friends shared once comes keeps hovering in my mind:

"I believe that the greatest trick of the devil is not to get us into some sort of evil but rather have us wasting time." - Donald Miller, 'Blue Like Jazz'

I could go on and on about this, but I’m just going to leave it at the quote…it sure makes ME think and think often about the bigger picture in MY life. Maybe it will resonate with you somewhere I your life. Make you think about the bigger picture in your life.

{Time that is never wasted; Time with my boys}

  1. well they are just too cute! I know what you mean though... things just seem simpler in the summer!

  2. Brooke, you hit the nail right on the head with that quote by Donald Miller. {LOVE him! And Blue Like Jazz} That IS how the devil gets to us here in our busy Western world ... distract, distract and suck away time with the trivial. {I'm looking at you, Facebook!} lol. Thanks for saying this and linking up today.

  3. Brooke, Thanks for visiting my blog and your comment which reminded me that I'm sorry and I was wrong are challenging...both acts of humility. Glad your visit gave me a chance to check out your blog. Thanks for your Bigger Picture today...time with them is never wasted - you are right. Lovely pictures here by the way.
