I feel like a juggler trying to keep all of these colorful balls up in the air. One ball is my daily time with God; one ball is spending quality time with my husband and kids; one ball is shopping for, planning and cooking meals; one ball is intentional parenting (you know - refereeing, talks, confrontations, correction); another is ministry outside my home; another communication (email, Facebook, blogging); and don't forget church and my home and praying for others and time with friends and people who come to my gate. In the meantime I have dropped several balls in recent months.....exercise, getting enough rest, eating wisely. I can feel the result of my negligence in the way I feel and how I look, and I'm not happy about it.
So I'm laying them all down and deciding which ones to pick up. Which ones need to be included and which ones don't. Some will lay on the ground for awhile until I can figure out how to get them all going in a good rhythm.
Maybe I should have gone to clown school.
