It’s not so much about having too much or too little to do each day.
It’s not about cleaning up the living room once the babes have gone down for their naps
It’s not about having a multiple-page to-do list waiting for me.
It’s not about having the entire day scheduled out.
It’s not about feeling like I must be (!) in control.
It is about having the right amount to do, which changes from day to day depending on our family’s season.
It is about our home being a showcase of the precious lives it serves.
It is about having just enough to do that I feel inspired, but never too much that I feel overwhelmed.
It is about making plans and following through, and sometimes this means nothing is planned.
It is about knowing we were created by a loving God who desires for us to know, at all times, that He is in control. Recognizing this allows us to let out a slow exhale, dissolve the need for perfection, and absorb our blessings.
Day after day we must remember this perspective.
