Ok, ok, ok

Man, it is takening longer to get myself geared towards getting more done than I thought! My beloved has been back in the work force for a little over two weeks now, and I can't seem to get my act together. I get the homework done, and the dinner made, and make sure the baths are done... but once all the kids are in bed it seems like all I want to do is veg.

I've been playing a game called Highlander over on Facebook, watching the Australian Open, or just day dream! It's like I feel lost or something. I have gotten some really small project done, but I know I can be doing a whole lot more. And to my beloved's credit, she has not harped me not getting things done. On the contrary, she has been incredibly encouraging. Still, I would like to get the realitively small projects done. Things like replacing the gasket around the garbage disposal... that would be a good place to start.

I've started forgetting to carry around my little notebook - and I've had some good ideas too... it is sitting in my pocket now. :-)
Verse for today:
James 1:2-11, ESV
Count it all joy, my brothers, [2] when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass [3] he will pass away. For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.

It sounds like you should celebrate the things you ARE accomplishing. I'm sure they are blessings to your family.

Praying you get it all in balance.
