Can't miss my sunrises

I guess I'm a real beach guy now.  I can't help getting up every morning now to see my sunrise, notice I say my sunrise.  It's like a birthday present every morning.  Can't think of a better way to start my day.  Looking at the beautiful sunrise, A question came to mind. Are the values I claim important linked to my actual behavior. Honestly I'm nowhere close as I'd like to be. Bonar wrote "Fill up each hour with what will last; Buy up th moments as they go; The life above, when this is past, Is the ripe fruit of life below. I want to value eternity more by the life I have here, showing I'm making good use of my time. I struggle with this. I know deep in my heart that "What we do, more than anything we say, or even write in our journals, reveals what we truly value the most." I hear the voice saying or asking for obedience. Why have I run from that voice before or done something that I know will hurt me or someone else?

Because sometimes our heart or being spontaneous outweighs the voice that is there.  I would call it just being human.  Sounds to me your heart knows right.

I agree with Carol...just being human.  The spiritual being looks for the sunrises and claims them...and places its values on what's important at the moment, right here and right now.  My prayers are always with you, D.
