How to Live a Life That Matters

Wooden Cross Copy

You can’t go back.

The days roll forward with indifference; It’s up to you to make them count. It’s up to you how you shape and stretch the hours to form the life you choose to live.

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” Annie Dillard

Your children are at your mercy with their hours and their days and their mornings and their nights. You are the god of their time. Are you digging your fingers into the clay that is the moments and molding something worth keeping?

How are your days?

Read the whole article where I share how to live a life that matters at my friend Courtney’s blog, Women Living Well.

In other news, I’m starting a series on Monday called “Living a Life That Matters.” Check back tomorrow for details.

    I am so excited for this series! One of the greatest challenges of living a “normal” life is that it is so easy to lose a sense of purpose in the day to day humdrum. Grateful for a place like this where I am encouraged to reorient my focus!

    Oh goodness. My girls are almost 13 and 15. I certainly don’t feel like I’m the god of their time! Instead of them being at my mercy with their days, hours, and time….I’m mostly at theirs.

    Sarah Mae – this was short and sweet and to the point – so inspiring!  Thank you for this reminder.  I don’t have my “own” children, I work at an orphanage in Mozambique, but lookng after 28 little boys, 4-8 years old, this couldn’t be more true!  Thank you!
