So this is my new “Rule of Life” board. And I know it looks crazy. The thing is, my life is kind of crazy. In a good way, but still. Three kids at two different schools that have different start and end times–and they all get out of school early every Wednesday and sometimes the High School starts late and/or ends early on Thursdays. Between Dr. appointments and vet visits and dentists and eye doctors and other miscellaneous, there is usually at least one appointment a week. And it’s not that it’s too much. It’s just that when I tried putting together a basic schedule for my Rule of Life I realized that I couldn’t do it. Any schedule I set up would have to be altered from week to week.
So I came up with the Rule of Life board. I have set a time for morning and evening prayer, and beyond that, I will fill in my time on a week-by-week basis. The board has slots and I have cards for those things I want to do. My Rule includes time with friends, time for work, time for exercise (I joined a gym!), time for blogging, and my Sabbath time.
This is very much an experiment, and I’m anxious to see how it works out. I do like the fact that this system is very flexible. (“Blessed are the flexible, for they will not be bent out of shape.”)
Well, I’m off for our first family devotion session in a long time. I actually think the kids are all waiting on me. (How awesome is that!)
