Ann of Holy Experience has some very inspiring thoughts on making every moment of the day count for eternity. Holy Experience was the first blog I ever read, and she always refreshes my spirit.
Her family has seven “rungs” that they commit to climb everyday: Listening, Love, Labor, Loveliness, Literature, Language & Logic
“ How do we know everyday what is a worthwhile investment of our time and what will burn up, straw at the end of time? How do we cultivate not simply well-trained minds, but nurture holisitic, well-lived lives? How do we work everyday towards raising up children, who are not merely academic automatons, but exuberant, soul-healthy, worshipers of God, committed to meaningful, eternal Kingdom work? How do we set our ladders against the right wall, and make the opportunity of today count for eternity?”
I printed out her thoughts & will be praying about a list of our own. I LOVE the idea of striving as a family to present our day as an offering.
Take a few minutes and go read this. It just might change your life.
