Running out of time?

Just today, as I was doing my usual 2hr drive from Home to Weekend Home, an unusual thought came to me. This week, our alarm clock didnt ring.. :O, and so we were later than usual, and the traffic was not as smooth, and we made a “BTW” stop at Tesco which was not planned for. What was planned for this weekend is taking care of chores, starting from 9am, which was the time we should arrive at Sebana, instead of 1030. So you would think, nah, whats 2.5 hrs difference gonna make?

The beauty around us

But today, was the day that I was all prepped to do work on S/V Calliste that was put off for so long. Arriving at 1030 means a whole morning  wasted, and that was me thinking ahead and dreading the catching up, so that the weekend is not wasted. At 1 point in my thoughts, I questioned God, why did he create life and gave it limited time? Why is there 24hrs in a day? And why is a lifetime seem too short for me to enjoy? Why is there so much that I WANT to do? Note, its a want, not a have to.. Why could I not put down the tools and enjoy the beauty that he created?

Pretty demanding of me on my creator huh.? Well, just a bit worked up. My personal trick to get over this nasty mood, count your blessings… Since arriving at Sebana 16hrs ago, I have been counting and have not finished. .. hmm… I am blessed in many ways, but if I dont reflect on it, I dont realize. 
I thank God for life and time that was given to me so freely, and I am sorry to be demanding more quality when he has given me the talent to create all that I need.
