Priority

Thoughts come in; I often wonder whether I can accomplish all I plan to do. The tasks are endless. How will I prioritize.
Important things for today…
very important
important and
not so important

next important things for the week

…….important things for the month

…….. important things for 6 months.

………important things for the year

Set schedules and REVIEW them ongoing.
If there are any  tasks not finished , then these can be carried forward to the next suitable time of day, week or month, depending on their urgency or importance.
This will ensure some semblance of accomplishing things that matter,
without a feeling of despondency.
I just feel better , that I have given this a thought.
Lets now get to implementing the idea and being disciplined about it.
Pray
as ” With God all things are possible.”

Excel in Love

Be Excellent

The perfect stride
And swiftness beyond compare
The Youthful mind
Seeks to  dare!
Without a care!

How long and many
A time the race goes to
The fleet of foot who do not tarry.
Pray is this always True
For me and You?

Oft times, the feet fail
As years go by.
But then let love prevail,
As we strive to excel,
For love never ends.

Romans 16 : 19
‘ be excellent in what is good’

The Star Athlete

The Star Athlete

The February morning looked gray and drizzly through my window
So why would I venture out? It would surely rain cats and dogs. . But then it was time to catch up with my training. Any athlete worth his salt trains cum rain or sunshine.
After all who does not like to win the  Marathon. Rather why should I lose out on training that much harder, to overwhelm the others
Don’t get me wrong. Today a person will use any means to win a medal even by dubious means.So why should I not train honestly to win , or be ahead on my training.
Despite the downcast weather, I forayed out into the gray weather.
Next moment I saw a fellow athlete lying unconscious by the roadside He seemed to be frothing at the mouth. Diverse thoughts strayed through my mind  Either he had an epileptic fit due to congenital epilepsy, or he had a seizure due to some dope being administered for enhanced performance.
This is the story of the star that fell. Peter was tipped to win the  marathon based on his recent timings which were much faster than any other.  All along I doubted his sudden good timings in recent meets.
Now was crunch time. I lifted him up and took him to my cabin; called the doctor . He drove down in quick time. Dr.Sombre  seemed to know Peter’s ailment and helped to revive him
immediately.
However he remained quiet on this matter, and  passed it on as if it was of little consequence.
Much as Peter was my rival,  I was concerned about his seizure.  On persistent questioning he revealed that his doctor was well aware of  the latest methods of doping and had been
administering this substance to improve his performance. Peter realised this was serious and
that more than winning, his very life was on the line .
Peter decided to start afresh. No more dope but from now he , would live on  hope and a prayer . Even though winning still seemed important to him, now the now the means to achieve
victory was even more important.
So ” forgetting the things behind we strive towards the goal”
…The most important of all ….The Crown of life which awaits each of us who run the race of life with great fortitude and courage.

Not a thing

Not a thing

Things to grasp, and possess,

Who can discern,

It’s here today and gone next morn.

Not to hold forever.

We possess only joy,

Of what we give away.

Share with those who have less,

To be a brother in this brief stay.

Fly free from fickle fortunes,

And be content to care for

Others,

And yet be carefree.
After all, it’s not ours to hold,

But yet to be a steward,

Of all He gives,

We came and leave with,

Not a thing!
1 Timothy 6: (7) We brought nothing into this world and we will leave it with nothing. Let us then be content with having food and clothing.
