We must not allow the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and a mystery. (H G Wells, 19th-20th English century writer)

Whether it’s the office calendar on our desk or the digital datebooks on our phone and computer, they do seem to have significant control of our lives. We can no longer count on our memory or a simple wristwatch to remind us of our schedule. For many, life has become so complicated that digital calendars with alarms are almost a necessity. Oh, for a simpler lifestyle of appreciation!

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
