This is how I feel a lot of the time. Especially lately with school starting! Our family is transitioning into the very first time that both Jeff and I are working full time at the same time that the kids know. One of us has always been home to take care of everything. Jeff commented last night, “Wow, when the kids are in school there is a lot more laundry and dishes!” Nooooo….one of us just isn’t home to do the laundry and dishes, or make the kids do them. LOL There have been times this week I have gone to the same store 3 times because I forgot things. I have a list on post it notes that seems unending. And I wonder how we are going to hold this all together. Plus, you add in my regular crazy.
And then I read my Bible, or I even read my own blog, and remind myself, God has got this. He isn’t going to let the mess explode. The laundry and dishes will happen, and they aren’t worth blowing up about, they are not what really matters. And I stop, breathe in the Holy Spirit, let Him fill my lungs, calm me, fill me with joy, and I keep on keeping on. He reminds me what I really am–and it is not a hot mess in His eyes.
