TOO MANY/TOO FEW Hours in a day!

Friday, June 18, 2010

Welcome back to the porch! Happy Friday to all! I can't begin to tell you how relieved I am that this hectic week is over and that I survived it! I am having the hardest time waking up in the mornings earlier than what is completely required in order to get ready in time ( sometimes not even in time). I have been stressing SOOO much about getting everything done that I need to get done, but after such a busy week, I feel like I have a better perspective on the 24 hours God gives us each day.

Prior to this week (and even during it), I kept thinking to myself, " I wish I didn't need sleep, I wish that I could just stay awake because I need those extra 6 hours ( 4 or 5 sometimes when Miss. Priss doesn't sleep) to get more DONE!?" And I think this is probably a common thought process among working mothers. This desire was totally reasonable to me up until this afternoon, and then it just sort of HIT me.

The way that I feel right now as I blog, watch baby Caroline sleep, and get ready to go out with one of my good girlfriends, is EXACTLY why God didn't want us working 24/7. I feel relaxed, relieved, at peace, thankful, and happy. Feelings all of which you don't usually feel when you are working and doing and moving and going and coming. God gave us day/sun, so that we may see to do our work. He shut off the lights and gave us night/ the moon, so that we would no longer BE ABLE to work and toil and stress ( as he knows our human desires to be productive all the time). He calls us to rest after hard work, just as he did on the 7th day! If we were to be doing things ALL the time, our lives would be one long day. But instead each day has a beginning and an ending as should our toil.

This blog is just a brainstorm of the thoughts that I have had this afternoon, so bare with me if it doesn't flow much. All I know is I change my mind: I am HAPPY that there is a time each day that I can shut off the lights and close my eyes and stop working and thinking and stressing. That way I am ready for the next set of 24 hours! ;)

Have a happy weekend!
