Highlighting Lines

When I was taking my MBA, my textbooks and hand-outs started to look like coloring books. Why? I practically colored the whole page, since I pretty much thought that everything was important. Some classmates would even rib me by saying that I'd be better off coloring the things which were not important. I would save on ink.

Utmost CoverIt has been more than a year since I started reading My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers daily. It is a pretty good book which helps us reflect on the more important things. I start my mornings by reading it and have discovered that by looking up in prayer more often, I am able to stay more grounded and calm no matter what.

I bring up the matter of highlighting since this is a habit I have with books, particularly those that I like. Recently, I discovered that a year after I have read a particular page or entry, new things stand out. Lines which I did not highlight before now appear to be more important. As my husband said, I'm not reading it as the same person. I have changed over the last year.

So it is with life. Things or events that occur in our daily lives may deserve a second look. Take time to reflect. You may read meaning in things which you pretty much overlooked before.

To say that my mom is prayerful is probably an understatement and to this day, I believe, that we her children have been blessed immensely largely because of her. So, on her 77th birthday (though she really doesn't look it), we extend our warmest greetings and say a prayer of thanks for having been given such a great mom.
