Been Busy, But Ready For Some Fellowship!

Hi! Come on in! Let me move aside some piles of laundry (it’s clean, don’t worry!) and if you could just hand me those toys over there…..great.

Sorry it’s such a mess. I’ve had a lot going on lately, and haven’t had much energy to expend on cleaning. Or updating this blog, for that matter!

What’s been keeping me so busy? Well, aside from the little ones methodically un-doing any kind of cleaning that I do, I’ve recently acquired a new website that I’ve been working on. It’s a place for Moms, but I’m hoping to focus specifically on helping the Work-at-home-Mom (WAHM), or the want-to-be-WAHM. (all the rest of the moms can continue hanging out over here – I’ve got you covered!)

I’m definitely seeing a need for balance these days. I’ve allowed myself to get overwhelmed, and it feels like my plate keeps piling higher and higher. I’ve been trying to refocus on the Lord, and He has been showing me lately that less really is more. Less STUFF in our house will in turn equal less to clean up, giving us more time, and more peace. We’re planning a tag sale in a few weeks (aka Yard Sale or Garage sale for you non-New Englanders!), and I’m hoping to clear out quite a bit of STUFF.

I also need to work on focusing on a few things instead of agreeing to too many things……does the phrase “Jack-of-all-trades, Master of none” keep sounding like a game-show gong in my head? Why yes, yes it does.

I love, love, love Matthew 11:28-30 where Jesus says:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Yes Lord, please help me to cast off this yoke that I have put upon myself and to take yours on instead!

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment and let me know where to visit you. Don’t worry if it’s a mess – I’m used to it!

  10. Balance is important. Simplicity is the way to go. The lord helps those who help themselves. So now you will feel more at peace. Good luck with the new website too!
