Have you noticed? Students all over are watching this thing creep up on all sides as summer fades into the busyness of the fall semester.
Sports are starting;
School supplies are being sucked up from the stores;
People are going to just a few more places before they must buckle down to wait till Christmas break;
Registration for everything that you can imagine is happening;
Our precious summer break is coming to a close...oh, well, it had to happen sooner or later, it does every year. I guess we should expect it by now. lol.
Being busy is a good thing, and a bad thing. For one, you don't waste as much time, or, put more bluntly, you don't have much time to waste! I mean, between Church, Youth Group, Keepers at Home, Gymnastics (hopefully!), AWANA, Co-op, Go Ye Therefore, Mission Minded Teens, trying to earn some money, and High School in general (and all those other things that, for some odd reason, seem to show their surprising faces at the most inopportune times) I'm not going to have that much extra time to burn! But, on the other hand, being busy also means that you might not be able to fit everything into your schedule, and you must put the most important things first, which is sometimes very hard to do.
As this new semester comes creeping in we need to be in prayer, 1. that God would lead us to be witnesses wherever He leads us, and in whatever situations He puts us in; and 2. that we would always put Him first; and finally, that we would use our time wisely and effectively to His glory!
Just as a warning, I will probably be posting less, just like all you other bloggers out there, which also means that I will probably be reading and commenting less also. So, don't be offended if I nearly cease to visit your blog for a while, I do love reading y'all's blogs! and commenting! (Who doesn't love comments?!)
Who besides our Lord knows what this next semester holds? Honestly, I can't wait till stuff starts up again!
