I read a very helpful piece of advice today over at Eve Out of The Garden: She offered up this guidance attributed to Hugh Nibley, "Let the Spirit be your guide from hour to hour, do what it tells you and do not concern yourself with other things. This is my advice to everyone else. There are vitally important issues which concern us all but to which I pay no attention unless so directed by the Spirit. "
Great guidance. I tried to do that today, and it really helped me to keep my focus. I started off the day thinking that I might get the kitchen clean, can some strawberry jam, and make granola. The Spirit lead me elsewhere as I checked in hourly with that Still Small Voice to see what one task I needed to focus on at that particular time. I ended up tackling tasks that really needed to be done to help my home run better...but that task, strangely enough, had nothing to do with cleaning the kitchen or making jam, and it was NOT on my to-do list at all. Long story short, I ended up buying bunk beds for my kids, totally changing their sleeping arrangements and bringing our playroom back into submission. There is more work waiting for me tomorrow as a result, but following the Spirit...It's a good thing.
