Use of Time

My sister and I headed 30 minutes south so I could have a regular checkup at the dr. He said all looked fine and off we went to shop at about five other stops.

I figured we’d get home by 6:00 p.m. We left at 10:30 a.m. I got held up at the grocery store trying to procure a coupon at Customer Service and two-three times I told her I’d just as soon shop. She’d raise her finger, signaling for me to wait and turn to talk to a co-worker or to call the home office.

She couldn’t give me a paper coupon, so she called a front manager to okay my discount. Every now and then, I’d tell her my sister had an electronic coupon I could use, but she’d raise her finger for me to pause again.

I did use my sister’s coupon electronically linked to her grocery card and I paid cash so it worked out. I had conflicting emotions. On the one hand, I was impressed with their service. On the other hand, I felt my time was more valuable than the small amount of the coupon. What felt like half an hour later, I got released to shop and I made it short because by then it was past dinner time and I was ready for home.Image result for free family friendly pictures of grocery shoppershttp://www.eatright.org/resources/kids-eat-right-listing

A few days previous to this, I went to the evening service at church. I thought perhaps the Lord was speaking to me in His still, small voice saying that He’s returning soon. I asked my husband, “if I knew Jesus was coming back tomorrow, or next week, or next month, how would I live?”

“How do you live now?”

“Good point.”

He gives me food for thought, that man.

I hope you are well! May God bless you!
