I often find that my life imitates a juggling act. One week my house may be clean and I am doing constructive and educational activities with my boys... but alas, I have spent little if any time in The Word and have not paid much attention to eating healthy and exercising.
The next week I am on a roll with getting up early, and finally making the connections with Jesus that I desperately need. I call friends and send cards. Exercising at least three times in the week AND get a shower in before 9 am (big accomplishment here!). Feelin' pretty good about things.... until I see the state of my house. Dirty floors, dishes everywhere, and laundry that has surely begun reproducing.
It's a mad rush and desperate insanity. I pick one thing up only to drop two others.
And right now, today, this minute, I am closing my eyes to that which will not matter in eternity and turning my focus instead to what my soul is hungry for.
So, if you stop by today you will enter a house that would never be featured in "Spotless and Stylish" magazine (yes I did just make that up - but it's probably out there). There is the slight possibility that you may encounter a mommy who has yet to shower. Perhaps.
But you will find some one who knows they are exactly where they need to be and whose heart is at rest.
