"If I only had a few more hours in a day....."

I would be a better wife
I would have a spotless house
I would train CoCo everyday
I would cook fantastic healthy meals every night
I would have lunch prepared for work the next day
I would do at least 30 min of cardio every day
I would exercise every day
I would practice singing and playing guitar more often
I would teach myself to play the mandolin
I would plan out our ministry better
I would study the bible more
I would pray by myself more
I would have ironed clothes
I would have friends over much more often
I would go to church more
I would go shopping more often
I would spend more time with my family
I would read more books
I would decorate my house better
I would have an immaculate yard
I would... be a better person all around....

Yet, all these things, I expect myself to accomplish with the time Im given....

What would you do if you had some extra hours in the day?  Do you find yourself wishing you did?  Do you get all these things done? 

"Lord, help me make the most out of the time you've given me here on this earth.  Help me to distinguish the things that I NEED to get done, and the things that can wait.  Help me to not waste my time on things that don't matter, but instead to be wise.  Help me to take good care of the things you've given me and blessed me with.  Help me to be a woman of GOD!"
