The Balance

I am just so busy!! Don't get me wrong, I like being busy, but there is such a delicate balance. My dependance on God is very necessary to maintain it. Time is just going to fly until Brian gets back on Saturday. We had Awanas tonight (I am the secretary for Cubbies...I love it!!), tomorrow we have visitation, and it just happens to be my week to help with the baking :) Friday is Brianna's Christmas party at school then rehearsal for Cantata that night...and Saturday is dress rehearsal and a Christmas luncheon then Brian comes home!!! It is all I can do to keep up with the house, but hey if I have time to be blogging, then there must be time somewhere right? It is interesting how the Lord gives you just what you need to make it through. Someone asked me tonight "what are you going to do with the kids and stuff when Brian gets deployed" I should be panicked about it or something. The Lord ALWAYS knows what we can handle...HE NEVER tasks us above what we can do, and do victoriously, not just getting by. He will provide my every need to manage this family in a God honoring and glorifying way as long as I depend on Him for it and commit it to Him. He never said it would be why would we expect that? I don't...0 kids-4 is not easy, but life is joy filled when God is in it.

I totally agree with you! I have been asked that questions before and secretly in my mind I was thinking "DO with them" As if they are toys you can put away or send away. I know what we are doing with the kids when Jim leaves...keeping busy, having fun and waiting for daddy.

Hey Honey,
I thank the Lord each day for you. You are remarkable. Thank you so much for your close walk with our Lord, the wonderful way you raise our children and invest in their lives, and for your devotion and support in our marriage. I could not have asked for a better, more faithful, loving wife than you. I love you and miss you.
