In my mind today students, I’m thinking about time management. Ol’ Ms. Alley is burning the candle at both ends again. [insert stress emoji here] This week has been a whirl of activity and as I look into the future I see a tornado forming. I have reading assignments(4 chapters), 8 discussion questions to answer, write and reflect in my writing course, a book club book to read, prepare for my Sunday School class, and write to you my students. Students an F5 tornado is headed straight into my mind and I’ve got to start battening down the hatches. Oh, and I apologize for yesterday because I took a sick day. I was at the ALS Clinic all day. No hatches were battened!
Go ahead back row; start the spit-wad war while I organize my planner and desk. Time management is a wonderful gift. We each get 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds each day. So how does Ms. Alley hold it all together? Even though today was a rest day, I started it with reading my small devotions. They literally lit my path through this day. They told me to rest. My body is tired. I listened. All of my upcoming activities will fall into place. I have no doubts or fears. My assignments will get completed. My books will be read. My lessons will get planned. My blog will get written. The back row is grumbling, “Good luck. I don’t see it happening.” Oh ye of little faith. My timekeeper is the master of all time. He carries the lamp to light my path. He is the ultimate time manager and totally free. Need time management?

Quotes of the Day:
“So during those first moments of the day, which are yours and yours alone, you can circumvent these boundaries and concentrate fully on spiritual matters. And this gives you the opportunity to plan the time management of the entire day.”
Menachem Mendel Schneerson
“If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.”
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
