In Bible Study this week, someone shared, "the days seem long but the years seem fast." When I think about Madeleine receiving her first report card last week (she is in kindergarten), the years seem fast. When I look at my baby girl singing with Spanish Club at Multicultural Night at her elementary school (which she did last night), the years seem fast. When I think about Everett moving to the transitional preschool classroom at his school (he just turned 2 in October!), the years seem fast. When it is time for bath and everyone is screaming and ahhh! the days seem long.
If the years are so fast, then I want to make this day count!
Today I finished an amazing book, Greg Mortenson's Stones into Schools (you must read Three Cups of Tea first), and it is such an affirmation that one person can make a huge difference in our world. I want to make a difference in this world. I am so glad that Greg is doing what he is, I am so glad that people are fighting for children (especially girls) to be able to learn and go to school. May I be able to affect my little sphere, for good. John Wesley (the first Methodist) said it like this, "do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can."
