Life is all about balance.
balancing the checkbook, etc...
These days, I'm finding it hard to find the balance.
Being a stay at home mom to two children under 5 is a full time job in and of itself. Those girls keep me on my toes at all times!
Then there's keeping up on housework,
keeping up on friendships,
keeping up on laundry,
keeping up on exercise (sometimes) and
keeping up on schoolwork.
Going to school full time while keeping up on life has been very tough.
And I'm feeling a little burned out.
It's times like these when I start to ask myself, "Self, it's feeling a little heavy around here, and Jesus said His load was light...so what are we carrying around that just ain't ours?"
And I wonder...are you feeling weighed down by life? By relationships? By obligations?
If you are, it's time to unload all the things that Jesus didn't hand you to carry.
For me, that's lightening up my school load and making time to do the things I need to do to stay healthy for my family.
It's taking time to weed out the expectations I put on myself that aren't necessarily bad, but aren't really necessary either.
Just some random thoughts for the evening...
