Thought for the Week:

Where does the time go, Lord? I can't seem to get everything done in one day.

Maybe I'm trying to do too many things. No matter how busy it gets,

help me to spend time with You every single day.  If I don't, slow me down so I can.

Thank You, Lord.                   (Marilynn Jansen)
