This past week I have been clinging tightly to this verse:
It was college finals week which is always difficult.
It was made even more challenging in that I had some intensive dental work done last week which resulted in a massive infection on the left side of my face from my throat up to my ear. #ouch
The one thing I had to keep reminding myself is that even though I can DO ALL THINGS God never expects me, or any of us, to do all things AT ONCE.
So even though I would like to be superwoman, honestly, she just does not exist.
Something will always gotta give.
This week it was:
The kitchen sink….
…the bathroom sink…
…dirty laundry in the hamper, clean but wet laundry in the washer, and unfolded laundry in the dryer...
…tablescapes that will never be pinned…
…slipcovers and pillowcases that are weeks overdue for a washing due to dogs with muddy paws jumping up on couches.
Then of course several outdoor projects have been put on hold…
…as we try to finish a big indoor project that has a deadline, not just on paper, but also I
NEED want to finish because I am just plain tired of the encompassing mess that is spilling out into other rooms.
On a day I was being particularly hard on myself I stepped outside and God reminded me of this:
It came in the form of a flower created by seeds sown by my own hand almost two months ago. It brought forth a promise that this area will eventually blossom into great beauty. A gentle reminder that a lovely garden, like life, is not created in a day. It requires work, patience and faith.
So yes, my sinks were dirty but I once again finished the semester with a 4.0 because I let some things go.
Bloom on my friends.
