Each day so many things get pushed back from my priority list and there are times we are barely getting by. Sipping on my caffeine while missing lunch in hopes that a small window will open up for nap time or even that split moment of quiet time. Dishes piled up (Yes, even in the Kuhn home) pool needs backwashed, weed eating needs done and dinner waiting to be fixed, not to mention papers to grade ( you seen the pile) and recorded- A stream of life and all it brings. From one flowing challenge to yet another opportunity.
How easy it would be if someone would have told us in the beginning that life for me and you would not be balanced. To not even expect it, or count on it and desire it. Wouldn't we all be more content, patient, positive. But LIFE CAN be rewarding and meaningful and a treasure each and everyday with the right outlook. If we would just except the limitations of each day and each season, with each child- none of which are balanced.
Scripture doesn't promise us BALANCE.
Jesus's life was not balanced. He always had people chasing after him and someone was always criticizing him. Even 5000 were waiting to be fed, healed, blessed and guided. Paul's life was certainly not balanced while in prison, shipwrecked, beaten. Paul was able to teach and travel and guide even while being persecuted . All of which they showed joy, a full heart , love, and time to reach out to others. So even though life takes its toll lets just see this day and all that this puzzle called "Life" brings as God's will and rest in the moments of these days. Embrace the unbalanced!!!!!
