I think the reason that I have so many unfinished projects is that I get, well...diverted.
I looked up the word to be sure that is what is happening to me! LOL
Definition #1 is "to turn in opposite directions." True, true. But not where I am this morning. :-D Definition #2 is the very one:
To give pleasure to especially by distracting the attention from what burdens or distresses. syn see AMUSE
Amuse...yes, that suits me better today! LOL
I also got my Brown Bag Quilt contest fabrics in the mail from JaiCi...
There's an apropos line from the movie The Great Debators, directed by and starring Denzel Washington (I love him :-D); the preacher dad tells his son, "We do what we have to do in order to do what we want to do." Good advice (if only I could apply it to the dust and dishes! LOL)!
In Scripture, the "must do" is tied to a promise. Deuteronomy 5:32-33 says this, "So be careful to do what the LORD your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess."
Yeah...The Lord asks that we not be diverted (definition #1!) from Him.
I'll be needing those "prolonged days" if I am to finish everything on my quilt lists!!
