Riding the crest of the wave

I am in the middle of a very busy season. Since last weekend (a week ago) I've had something going on every day. And it does not get any better in the week (plus) to come. Our church is running our VBS this week. Normally this might mean time for a husband and wife to get out together, or for one or the other to serve - or both to serve, but with my beloved serving I am having to follow my #2 child around due to his Aspergers. Plus all of the other things going on around the house (mowing grass, laundry, etc.). with it running from 6pm until 8:30 each night there is little time to get dinner on the table let alone anything else. As a result I am taking time off from work to get the required things done (like getting the cars inpsected). The this weekend I will be driving about 100 miles to a conference on Aspergers, and the church is having a pool party for the congregation. Then the work week begins again. Lord please give me strength and endurance for the days ahead, and I would also ask for wisdom in how to lead my family better. Verse for today: Matthew 11:25-30, esv At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. [7] All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light
