So I am so slammed right now with life that I have a difficult time processing a thought. (My mind often feels like this picture, unclear but I keep running)
This season of my life has me running most days without stopping. I have too many things on my plate!
The other day, I had about 30 min. before I had to leave for dance and I had to prepare dinner and make sure all of the kids were ready for school the next day. Ryan and I had just prayed together and read a devotion from “Jesus Calling” He said, “Mom, that was so great, I loved having devotions with you.” Then about 3 mins later he hugged my leg and asked me if we could play a game together. About 5 things ran through my mind that I needed to get done before I left for dance. Then I remembered the little things are the most important things. (little things make up big things) I knew that playing cards usually was a short game so I suggested we play Rummy. We played 2 games in 15 min and it was great. Ryan did not complain that our time was too short, he just enjoyed the moments together and so did I.
I read a book years ago called The Contented Woman. It talked how important it was To Live In The Moment. It is difficult to remember this, when we are trying to juggle so many things at once! I need to read this book again.
Someone said, “that life is what passes us by while we are making plans for the big moments.”
I do not want to miss these precious days with my family. They are growing up too fast!
“Enjoy the little things in life because one day you will look back and realize they were The Big Things!”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
