Using Our Time Wisely...

I love this qoute from Dallin H. Oaks. I'm going to be pulling back again. I did this several months ago and I will be doing it again. Home is where I'm the happiest. I'm going to be spending less time out in the world and more time at home. Less time on the computer and more time with my children. I'm going to try harder not to waste my precious time on junk. I'm going to be holding myself to a higher standard. The Christmas season can be such a busy time. All I really want is to be with my family and really into taking care of my family.

"We should begin by recognizing the reality that just because something is good is not a sufficient reason for doing it. The number of good things we can do far exceeds the time available to accomplish them. Some things are better than good, and these are the things that should command priority attention in our lives. . . . Consider how we use our time in the choices we make in viewing television, playing video games, surfing the Internet, or reading books or magazines. Of course it is good to view wholesome entertainment or to obtain interesting information. But not everything of that sort is worth the portion of our life we give to obtain it. Some things are better, and others are best. When the Lord told us to seek learning, He said, "Seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom." Dallin H. Oaks, Ensign, November 2007
