i love your comments. i really do.
they inspire, encourage, challenge and humble me.
once in awhile they stump me. like this one:
was reading your blog and i was speechless as u have soo much time ..id love to have that.
???!! me? time?
sand there i was, stumped. completely.
these four children and their schooling and their moulding and their shaping and their feeding(!) loudly and heavily demand on my time. some days i can barely breathe for awareness of the (lack of) Time i have to do all that is Unending and Insurmountable before a new days starts and i have to do it all over again.
but hurrying? that never creates more time. in my experience that ever only creates tension and regret. you?
and so, here i am, this year, finally learning that i don't need more time, i need enough time.
and stealing a whole bunch of moments just to be on the safe side:
* cousin sleep overs
* waking up to lullabies from a 19mo
* heavy rain on a high tin roof
* sharing a bed with a storm-frightened daughter
* little fingers sending heart-shaped signals through the window.
* being whipped in a memory game by a 3yo.
it turns out that coffee and toast in bed WAS too good to be true...
and reality was waiting for me downstairs!!! haha
so, no, despite how it may appear, i really don't have "soo much time" (i just don't do the housework as often as i should probably!)
God gives me time. God gives me life. my Life Time. i am just trying to be a good steward with that gift. and somedays i 'get it' better than others :)
enjoy your time this weekend x
