This week has been overwhelming, and it’s only Wednesday! A week I planned to do no blogging, so that I could focus on our massive Garage Sale, turned into a mega-blogging week, when I was offered the wonderful opportunity to be a contributing writer for At the Well. Agreeing to step in and fill a slot immediately meant writing two marriage posts this week (the first appears tomorrow!). I hope you’ll go over and read it!
Overlapping these events will be hosting my first Brunch Meeting of the year on Saturday for my Young Moms‘ Group, called “A Mom Thing.” My excitement and nervousness over all these events has produced an adrenalin rush of epic proportions.
Where does ordinary Homemaking come in when life careens around the corner threatening to bowl you over?
Well, meals, laundry, cleaning
continue come to a halt. Well, meals don’t stop, but you have to simplify. And, as my husband reminded me this morning, “You can’t do it all. Delegate.” While I now have a grown daughter to delegate to, I haven’t always, and with grown children comes different and additional responsibilities and busyness. So, it never ends. It just changes.
Sometimes I feel guilty delegating. Sometimes I’ve been looking forward to an event and putting my special touches to it, like the Mom’s Brunch, and I don’t want to delegate it. But, one thing’s for sure, I can’t do it all.
So, I go to the LORD and pour out my heart once again (Ps. 62:8) to the God Who Loves Me and Who knows the end from the beginning (Is. 46:10), crying out for help and wisdom (James 1:5).
I know the LORD will help me. I need not worry, fret or fear (Philippians 4:6-7). He knows my frame and remembers that I am dust (Psalm 103:13-14) and a bruised reed shall He not break (Is. 42:3).
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Philippians 4:19-20)
That is my Homemaker’s Hallelujah!
