Just a quick post today. My calendar filled up all the sudden. The older kids are in a play this spring and practice has begun. We’ve added voice lessons to our weekly routine. Homeschool PE moves to the pool at the college for a swimming unit. What was manageable last week suddenly got nuts.
Times like this are especially challenging for me. It seems if the pressure mounts to get everything done, I start having trouble getting anything done. I lose perspective. I lose focus and I end up spinning my wheels.
Jesus says “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest… Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30, The Message)
Freely and lightly. Yes!
