I use an alarm to wake me up in the morning. Sometimes I don’t need it. I am awake before it rings, but I always set it.
Sometimes I use an alarm to remind me of an appointment, but I almost never use an alarm to remind me of a task I need to complete.
I am really reconsidering the use of alarms in my life. I have lists and written reminders, but I am inclined to think I need an alarm too.
Today is my brother’s birthday and I was going to call and say hello, but did I do it? Nope. I let it slide by me. WHen I first thought of calling, I thought it was too early where he lives. Then I got busy at church and then I thought it was too late. I must be crazy. I could have called during the afternoon which might have been ideal time for him and for me, but I didn’t call. I needed to remind myself with an alarm.
Alarms! I need them and I plan to use them to do a better job of remembering. I am thankful I have tools to do just that.
Father, thanks for the tools we need to help us in our daily life. Help me to make use of these tools effectively. Amen
