"There aren't enough hours in the day..."

How many times have I heard people say that?...countless. And recently, for the first time, I said it. lol. This is something I have been thinking about for a while. There are so many things I want to do, but literally don't have the time. How do I balance the things like housework and cooking with the things I want to enrich my life like relationships and hobbies and of course giving my one child (and hopefully more in the future) the best life I can give them. PLUS, putting the time I want to in my walk with God to have an awesome relationship with Him, which is the most important thing in this life. And not be stressed throughout the day. These are the thoughts roaming around my head and so far this is what I have come up with...

1. I must have my priorities in line . God first, husband second, children/family third.
These are my big callings in this life.

2. It is my responsibility to keep the house clean and make food and create the right kind of atmosphere. But, I don't think I have to be OBSESSED with the house being perfect :)
3. It is a joy and a worthy calling to be able to minister in the lives of people at church and the teens.
4. I need to take time for doing the things I love and resting. Otherwise I will become what I don't want to be- a wreck and probably bitter.
5. Somehow I can combine these things together and make it work, not sure how yet though.

So, I don't have a huge answer, just thoughts that hopefully will transform into something tangible. I know that I don't want to go to bed every night being stressed because I didn't get everything done. I want to do my best and walk in the Spirit and then be at peace in my heart, with God and with people at the end of everyday.

  1. You will find your groove, Robyn! About that time you'll add another baby to the family to shake things up again. :-P But really...you'll get to a place of calm in your head. :-)

    My house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy. :) I find that makes a good balance...especially with a houseful!
