So Much Work, So Little Time
I have so much to do and so little time. This truly could be the mantra for our time. I imagine Paul might have felt that way with so many new churches to shepherd and so little time. Travel took a lot longer then, too. There are nights like this when I stare at the two chapters I have to read for International Business, the paper to reasearch and the many discussion questions left to answer. The articles left to edit and write for SBU Life. The press releases that MUST go out tomorrow. The e-mails that must be answered and/or filed. Then I look at the pile of laundry on the couch and the sink full of dirty dishes. Then I feel guilty because I really want to go to work tomorrow and be productive, but my husband is house-bound recovering from surgery. How did the Proverbs 31 woman do it??
I want to be productive and have my people call me blessed. I want a spotless house and a PhD. I want my kids to enjoy being kids and sometimes I long for the day when they can drive themselves to soccer, orchestra, basketball, music lessons and school. Oh, I know when that day comes I will miss the car trips. Those are the best talking times.... when the kids aren't fighting and I am not hormonal. I need to read a book about menopause. I think I am going there, so I better get a travel guide!
I think I need sleep. A 5:30 a.m. walking date is coming too soon!
