Thyme is a-creeping!

I have quilt deadlines to meet. I have samplers to stitch. I really need to work on some smocked dresses. I have a house to clean with knick knacks to dust. I have a pile of correspondence I need to attend to. I have desserts to make to sweeten up my husband. I have…. I have…. I have…. my to-do list is never a short list. And where is the time I need to get all these things done? I say all that to set the stage for my creeping thyme that is finally blooming!

It is a wonderful groundcover that requires minimal care, and their little blossoms are just darling. Not to mention the subtle reminder to me that time doesn’t wait for me to get things done. I have to make time for those things I mentioned I have to do.

Thanks for popping by, everyone. I wish you a productive day. My big thing today is to get all my “Victorian Courtship” fabrics cut and ready to go! Will have pictures for you later!

Time is a-creeping

I am quite surprised – when I put them in last year, they didn’t look like they were going to amount of anything. But my creeping thyme (ground cover) is blooming beautifully:

Speaking of creeping thyme, a few years ago, I suddenly realized that time was silently creeping away whether or not I was paying attention. Time was just simply ticking away second by second, moment by moment…

I argued, “But…. wait…. there’s still much more I would like to accomplish!” But time didn’t seem to wait or slow down because of my concerns, and continued to creep away. It was then I started to be protective of my time. I started to evaluate the things I do that fill my time. I began to value the time that is given to me.

For the rest of the time I have left, my desire is that I would be taught to number my days so that I may apply my heart to wisdom (Psalm 90:12).

This post was meant for Saturday, but I wasn’t able to post it before time crept away in the midst of my anniversary weekend. See what I mean about time that is a-creeping”?

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. I will be back tomorrow. :)
