I am overwhelmed by all the areas of improvement needed, and the plans and schedules needed, and the priorities and prayer lists needed, and the studies and books to be read, and music to be listened to, and memories to make… not to mention all the things that fall under the aforementioned plansand schedules categories!!! oh yeah, and an earlier bed time! and rise time… if I get the previous oen worked out.
is life REALLY this complicated? I mean, come on, do I need to have a schedule for everything? and am I really whining for all the world to see and read, right here on this blog?
OK, so on the PLUS side of everything, I have had a great three days, not getting everything done and meeting every goal… ok, not most of them. BUT I had A LOT of goals, because I was going to transform into the model homeschool blogger who is organized and spiritual. Don't roll your eyes, girls, cause I know you all fall into the same trap, sometimes, right?
I started praying scripture prayers for my fabulous husband, who is the BEST, whom I will be married to for 8 years on Tuesday, and then I tweaked them some to pray for my children as well. FOUR days. Consistently, before bed. It is already changing my days. I have a sore throat, haven't gotten to the gym, gotten less done than I usually do in the house, and cooking wise (and I am not Mrs Housework and Mrs Cook either), and it is been wonderful. Precious Jesus is giving me HIS eyes and heart for my family. so though my list of things to do is long, and what is crossed off is short, I am content with what God has gotten done through me this week. Love. Lots of it. Still could be lots more, but even in seeing that, there's no condemnation… just love, and more where that came from. God is GOOD!
