Do you Make A Difference?

What do you spend your life on?
I spent the equivalent of a day working at Gaston Memorial Hospital this past weekend. I usually average about 20 hours a week serving as a chaplain.
I preach and teach each Sunday at church, and try to serve as pastor to our small congregation.
I spend 3/5 hours 3 days a week helping children & teens with their schoolwork.
I spend time each day reading the Bible and trying to talk with God about my life, faith, family, friends, church and co-workers, patients, families and the world.
I try to keep up with my wife and help her disciple and raise my two favorite children.
I spend about 30 minutes a day reading and writing to try and help others.
I read either a paper-pages book or a book on my Kindle app on my Blackberry each day.
Those are the things I spend my life on.
Sometimes I also spend time watching sports & other TV and looking at things on the computer-too much, at times, but I've cut back.
Others may be more famous- others certainly make more money. But at the end of every day, I can honestly say I loved God and did things to help others. I am thankful and proud of that.
What do you spend your life on?
