What is a sparkler?....its something pretty, but short.

When I see good ideas, I often ponder...is this a sparkler? Will this last? For how long?

Maybe its normal for some things to have a life cycle. For Bible studies to come to an end, for chore routines to stop working, for a weekly time to input financial info into the computer to get set aside. Life changes, so other things have to change.

But how do I turn a sparkler into something more like the Olympic Torch? How do I make something beautiful also something consistent in my life? I don't love routine. I may not love change, but I don't love stasis either. I find things that I want to endure, but they rarely do.

Last year at this time I had my house cleaning under control. This year...not so much. And it was better then, so how do I get there again (besides getting off the stinking internet?)? My kids had a chore routine, and they thrived on it...why didn't it last? My exercise and quiet time routine in the morning worked...why is it so hard now?

How does an inconsistent person learn consistency? And for how long can she keep it up?
