When it comes to life, sometimes I feel like I can never catch up. I feel like there is always something running behind me and at the same time I am scurrying along to catch what is in front. Its the feeling of trying to sit and enjoy a movie when you know you have a huge paper due the next morning that you haven't even started. Like I can never have all the laundry done, dishes washed, house clean, spirit filled, children fed and happy, all at the same time. I am always saying that I feel like I can just never get on top of things. I believe that there is a way of life where daily activities flow smoothly without stress, because they are scheduled and items do not get strewn about because they have a home and are organized. I strive towards this life. Which often leaves me tense and frustrated. I have a hard time accomplishing nothing during the day, and I often throw playing into that catagory. Yesterday the girls and I enjoyed a day out in our beautiful yard. We had planned to pick oranges but they weren't quite ready. So we just played. At one point I just sat in the sunshine (in shorts/83degrees) and read my book while I watched the girls tackle eachother and laugh. It was a very fun and relaxing afternoon.
I took pictures so that I was actually doing something(:
The Lord often gives me this verse when I am trying to hard.
My fearless one...bring it on!
My delicate one...keeps a white lamb clean outside!
