– That 13th Hour – Five Minute Friday
Time to think.
Everyone has two 12 hour batches every single day. But what if everyone, for some crazy reason, for one day, could turn that 12 o’clock in the afternoon into a 13 o’clock? How would you spend one extra hour? But let’s say there was a rule that you could not use it on your normal stuff such as work, study, mommy-hood, Daddy-hood, chores, school, ‘laundry’.
How would you use it? Ask yourself what might God want you to do?
Make that phone call to brighten up someones day?
Take that walk with your dog you know he or she would cherish having?
Vegging outside and just soak up some sun? Heck, grab that book you never have time to read. (or write)
Play with your child that kid game your child always asks “Do you have time now to play that game?”
I bet your list could get long just thinking about it.
How about you look at your clock now, making your own 13th hour fit it where you think it could go. How about the middle of the day, late afternoon, after all the kids are down or before they wake up the next morning.
Take a time to say ‘Thank you God. Thanks for all the time you give and guide me in with so much that I do. Thanks now for encouraging me to take that little ‘blink of an eye’ hour to escape my normal routine and enjoy a bit more sweet and simple 13th hour this day.
