We were very lucky to take a tour this past summer which included the Navuoo Temple. I have several special memories of this tour and one of them was the temple. It is the only temple I can recall that has a clock on it. It has repeatedly come to my mind that I should be thinking about what I do with my time.
With being the first of the year, it easily connects with the setting of new yearly goals. I have thought long and hard about this -- I don't want to set a resolution, I want to achieve a goal!
I've chosen the four basic areas: physical, emotional, spiritual and financial.
It is time that I take control of my physical self - eat less and exercise.
It is time that I consciously take steps to become closer to my Heavenly Father - read daily scriptures.
It is time that I stop spending money like I have more than I actually have - budget.
It is time that I take responsibility for my emotions, not waiting for situations to make me happy- personal time.
I have detailed plans for each area. It will be difficult, I know. I work outside of the home and so I have limited evening hours to accomplish these things. But isn't there a scripture that states -through small acts; great things are accomplished-?
If it is to be; it is up to ME!
What time is it for you?
