Do you ever feel like life is swirling around you and all you can do is to grab something and hang on? I do. Especially at this time of year. It seems that before things can wind down they have to ramp up. Take MOPs, for instance. We only have 3 weeks left, but in order to finish the year we have an auction to set up for and put on this week. After that there is a brunch. For the brunch I need to find gifts for my Special Tuesday committee. After the brunch there is a brunch for all of the childcare workers. The next week is the week we clean the church. All good stuff, but a lot of it.
Or, maybe school. We have field days coming up, end of the year assemblies, plans to make for next year....
Or, How about AWANA? Books to finish and boxes to make into cars for drive-in movie night.
Taxes to file, business taxes to file and pay, houses that really don't clean themselves- no matter what any book tells you, yards to mow, gardens to weed, edges to edge...blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
So, my question is, HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU PEOPLE MANAGE TO HOLD IT ALL TOGETHER? What's the secret? How do you intentionally slow the world?
Oh, and please take a minute to pray for my sister, Trish, who has decided to get off her merry-go-round altogether.
