|the "daily" section|
I double-booked myself this morning. (Actually, almost TRIPLE-booked!) I hate it when that happens.
Here's my excuse. One of them anyway. When reminded last month of the first meeting of a group studying Celebration of Discipline by R. Foster, I wrote it down in the larger "daily" section of my datebook. Later, when accepting a lunch date and making a coffee date for the same day, I didn't check THAT section and wrote the last two appointment in the "monthly calendar" section.
Note to self: Record and check appointments on monthly calendar first. ALWAYS.
This incident helped me think about the times I have been guilty of "double-booking" when it comes to inspirational reading. Bible study materials, great devotional titles, and any of the wonderful books written by godly people begin to fill up my time, while personal and intentional BIBLE reading is "filed" away in a less visible part of my life's "datebook" where it is too easily forgotten. OOPS!
Note to self: Read the Bible first. ALWAYS.
