Hubby has the tractors going, trying to meet CRP deadlines. Irrigation wells are pumping due to lack of rain and snow. Our cows are beginning to calve. The early veggie seeds are tucked under loose dirt in the garden. Spring Break has come and gone, and so far my NCAA basketball bracket is not too shabby. It is March Madness at our Home-On-The-Range.
Each year when we spring forward and lose an hour, our schedule and workload seem to immediately multiply. Even with good organizational skills, sometimes the madness is like a Kansas whirlwind spinning out of control. For instance, yesterday I was supposed to scan seed sheets and submit the seed orders. This task needed done so the orders would be filled for the next delivery. Unfortunately, this job was not on my to-do list and was forgotten until this morning.
I dropped the ball, but the game is not over. Hubby and I need to listen and communicate well to minimize turnovers. We also need to continue to daily review our play book (Bible) and take Coach’s (God’s) advice. All our hard work is meaningless, meaningless if we do not work as a team for our God.
The wisest and wealthiest man on earth, King Solomon, concludes with these words:
Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad.
Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14
Everything we do, whether work or play should honor God. It is our duty to obey His commands. In fact, I Corinthians 10:31 says, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
It’s time to head out of the locker room with game face on, giving my all during this March madness.
