As I've mentioned in my Valentine blogpost, my schedule has been crazy full for the past few weeks (and counting). I’m pretty sure, some of you guys have the same case as mine.

There are a lot of things that consume our time – things that we need to do, and those that we want to do. Ideally, I want my time equally divided for work, family, friends, leisure, and God. However, I’m at this point where there’s just so many things that I need to do (for work, especially). Not that I don’t like doing work, but I would want to have time to make use of my ballet shoes (again) and come up with some combinations, or visit new places and capture their beauty through photographs. I would want to have more time laughing around sharing stories with family or friends, whenever I want to.

Believe me, I’m happy, I really am J It’s just that, at times, I wish I had more than 24 hours a day because it really saddens me not to have time for the things that I want. And just when my smile was about to turn into a frown, I bowed down my head and started praying.

Truly, God hears the cry of His people. I remembered His words from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 about ‘A Time for Everything’:
1 There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every [a]event under heaven—
2 A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance.
5 A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing. 6 A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.

God's know the desires of our heart - what we need, when we need it, or do we really even need it? and the same goes for our wants. He knows all of these and makes them happen in their proper moments in our lives. His timetable for us is perfect. And while we wait for His perfect plan to unfold in our lives, let us seek His guidance, pray.

This might have made me sound like a goody two-shoes. But truth be told, I make mistakes and (sometimes *wink*) I break the rules haha. I guess, I just wanted to share with you how when my life gets stressful, and I reach my low points that I get to keep a smile on my face and move forward with life – how I get to celebrate every date J
