This is me. This is how I feel. What about you? Although I say I love chaos, (might as well convince myself I love it, it’s where I live), I really love a life that is chaortic. I love the excitement of ‘much’, but I do want it to be somewhat organized. Chaos plus organization= chaortic
Today I sit with a head that is spinning (coffee isn’t even helping). I am 8 days behind in my bible study (which I missed last week), 2 of our kids have moved to new places in the last 3 weeks, one is getting married in 12 days, (and this weekend which is the last weekend before the wedding, just got booked with college early registration for our youngest), and I am 7 days into a new assignment here at DaySpring.
All of it is wonderful, all exciting, all new, but I feel like I am drinking out of a full blast sprinkler!
I so desperately want to spend time with my King, I so desperately want to go for a nice long walk, I so desperately want to live in each and every moment (they are special and irreplaceable).
How do I slow down? How do I get margins? To what can I say no?
Is it even possible at this stage?
So I made a list and I am enlisting help (yes there are people out there willing to help who have margins to serve when you are swamped).
I will take my lunch hour and spend at least 30 minutes with my King (the other 30 on bills, I would hate to have the lights shut off while I have out of town company), and while I scurry with the details I will love the ones scurrying with me, I will make a memory, even if it is a memory of drinking out of a full blast sprinkler.
After all this picture makes me smile!
Loves to all!
