I looked at my blog tonight and was shocked that I hadn't posted since December!! Time goes so fast and you often forget to savor moments that really matter. In the midst of our hectic lives we forget how fragile it really is. Right after you lose someone that is very close and dear to you it always seems to be a wake up call to life, it's meaning, and how we plan on changing for the better. Yet, I know for myself, that some of those things really do matter. You still have to work so you can pay bills, you still have to clean house, do laundry, take kids to sports (because you want them to be involved in something good), you push ahead in your career so you can make even more money, etc., etc. What a liar I was. I changed for a little while but life took over once again and I found myself drowning in daily routines. I like to have time for myself to just think and reflect on things, life, my relationship with Christ, my tasks and deadlines that are due. It is a rare occasion that I actually have the time to do it. That saddens me. I want that time but just don't seem to fit it into my schedule. I feel convicted because of it since I know I could get up earlier in the mornings and hopefully get that time but I LOVE to sleep and the AM is not my favorite time of the day. So the question is how to balance it all?
If you have any suggestions please send them my way. I could use all the advice I need before I get another "wake up" call.
Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
