I recently had to break down and buy a large family calendar.
It has my daughter’s work schedule and her class times.
My son’s football practices and games are there, along with his band events.
My husband filled in his work commitments and travel plans.
We even have entries for my youngest daughter’s social engagements– birthday parties, sleepovers, lessons.
Then there are church meetings, doctor’s visits, car maintenance appointments, and haircuts, too.
In the background of the busyness, is an invitation …
An open invitation, from the King of kings.
In the midst of the other appointments on the schedule, this one is different.
I know this, and yet, far too often, this is the one I let slide.
Clearly I need to work on that calendar …
