Stop! Drop! Roll!

A recent email from my aunt held inside this little gem and I must share:
This morning I read ~ "a busy life is not necessarily a productive life. I think it is time for a refresher course on how to find God's balance in life because being out of balance is not a good thing. When our finances are out of balance, we hear from the bank. When the washer is out of balance, it dances across the floor. When the tires on our car are out of balance, the ride is rough. But when our life is out of balance, disaster is just around the corner.
Remembering my elementary school days when the firemen came to our school to teach us what we should do in case we ever caught on fire. I remember the drill clearly. Stop! Drop! Roll! Let's apply that same drill to the area of balance. STOP! When was the last time you got off the merry-go-round of life and took a hard look at your life? Build on your strengths. Accept your limitations and yield to the seasons of life. DROP! Eliminate things that steal your time. Learn to invest your time instead of just spending it or allowing others to steal it. ROLL! Roll away the burdens you are carrying and learn the value of resting in God. Every opportunity to worry is also an opportunity to trust Him." (Mary Sutherland)

Happy 1st of November!
