Today’s post is part of the Christian Writer’s blog chain. This month, our theme is “leap.” Please visit my friends’ blogs by clicking on the links in the right-hand column.

There’s never enough time.

That simple sentence should be cross-stitched on a pillow. Or at least laminated and posted on the fridge. 

It’s an eternal truth. 

Well, then, congratulations! Good news! Halleluiah!   

This month, we get a whole extra day. An entire 24 hours. A complete set of 1440 minutes. 

February 29. Wow. That’s not something we get to see every year. It’s a gift. 

How often have you heard someone say that the best gift they’ve ever received is the gift of time spent with someone they love?

This year we get an extra day. A special gift to spend extra time with someone we love. 

God’s days are always special. God’s days are always an opportunity to spend time with Him. God is always with us; always waiting for us to turn to Him and say, “There you are.”

To which He responds, “I am.” 

Today if you ask someone for help and they say, “Just give me a second,” you go right ahead and smile.  

“No problem,” you can say, “today I have a whole 86,400 extra seconds.”

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for time. Thank you for giving us exactly as much time as you determine we need in this life. Thank you for promising that we have eternal, “forever time” in heaven with you. Please help us make the best use of the time you have given us here on this earth. Help us use it for your good purpose and glory. Amen. 

WHAT ABOUT YOU? Any plans for the extra day God gave you this year?

Loved your prayer here today Carol, I'm praying it now too!

Well Carol, I planned to use my extra day to get a lot accomplished, but now at the end of the day I see that I didn't complete everything I wanted to. But, I am thankful for what I did complete today. I will start tomorrow ahead of where I was this morning. Thank you for reminding me to be thankful.

I haven't used my time wisely this week, but for all I didn't get done even today, I enjoyed a lovely walk in crisp, spring air with sunshine in between clouds of gray. Thank you, God, for dosing us with this week's rain. I enjoyed its aftermath this afternoon.

@ Chris - keep praying it!

@ Kathleen - Starting the next day ahead is a great thing! Thank you, Jesus for time to do what needs to be done.

@ Pam - I love the rain; whether I'm in it or inside looking out. It reminds me of God's power and His gentle provision.
