Wasted Days and Wasted Nights

Today we had beautiful weather here in Edmonton.  The temperature rose to +14 C.  It would have been a perfect day for a walk in the ravine near my home.  Or I could have sat out on my balcony and enjoyed the day.  Or I could have gone to the library to pick up the books that are on hold for me.

I could have done all of these things, BUT!!!!  Instead I made the choice to stay inside my home and not even open the patio doors.  I was feeling tired this afternoon so I took a nap under the bed covers I've used all winter.

I did accomplish some things indoors today but I could have put them off for another day or for later in the day when it began cooling off.

I made some very bad choices today and I will live with some regret.  But I don't have to wallow in those bad choices tomorrow.  Tomorrow I can choose to make better choices.  This is a lesson I seem to have to learn quite frequently - making a better job of the choices I have before me.

Hopefully I'll have less and less "wasted days and wasted nights" to regret over and more and more "productive days and restful nights".

May you have a productive day and a restful night.

Be blessed.

Bless You

I'm back again.  I have been negligent in my writings.  But I'm going to be more diligent in my writing and sharing with my readers what I am learning and growing spiritually.

I just left a comment on the blog of my friend Brenda Leyland, "It's a Beautiful Life".  If you go to her blog she is having a special give away.  When I left my comment on Brenda's blog I had to type in a code.  The code was "bessedu".  There are a few letters missing but to me it said "bless you".

So today I wish to bless you and may you have an even more blessed day tomorrow.
