Pic via: my most frequented spot for scripture study this week -- my good ol' kitchen table. I've been 50/50 for the last few months regarding studying super early and on my own before the girls wake up and studying aloud while they're with me. I like both for different reasons. It's nice to read and ponder without three wee ones asking me questions, and then it's so nice to have those three wee ones ask me questions. I've said it before -- NO ONE has challenged my faith, knowledge of Christ's gospel, and my personal testimony like inquisitive Olivia. Claire is gradually following suit, too. Answering them has been such a gift to me. And then quiet mornings all to myself like this one -- they're a sweet kind of gift, too. :)
Entry from Tuesday, June 5
Isaiah 55:2
"Wherefore do ye spend...your labour for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight in its fatness."

The analogy of spending calories on food like you do money on products has always made sense to me -- I only have so much sugar to "spend" in a day, and I'm not going to waste it on lame sugars (like "healthy" granola). I've never applied the analogy to time management and productivity, though. It, too, fits perfectly: I only have so many minutes in a day to spend on any given activity, and I'm not going to waste them on lame activities that won't give me a real return (like mindlessly scrolling through Instagram). Eat ye that which is good, labour for that which satisfieth. Makes perfect sense to me.
