How I love thee!
I love thee, let me count the ways-
I love you in the morning when I make excuses.
I love you at noon time because I am tired and hungry.
I love you when three o’clock comes and the day settles in for the eternity before dinner and I need to exercise.
I love you at dinner time, because I am the one who has to make it.
I love you in the evening when I need to write, plan school or finish up chores before bed.
Did you know I loved you so much?
Alas, my heart is broken!
You mock me!
Avoidance, you are a liar and a cheat! You delay me, divide my interests. With you there is no real escape. The weight of conviction follows my flight. You leave my home in ruins. You leave my soul disquieted.
I’m leaving you or you are leaving me. I have had enough!
Nothing is too difficult for me to do if God is leading me to do it!
He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). this is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it). James 4:6
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Get out of my way Avoidance, step away procrastination, I am going to make dinner!
*Note: I wrote this letter while thinking about my topic for speaking to a Mom’s group tomorrow,my musing for all to see. Being a stay at home mom is like running a business, but many don’t see it that way. Even though this is humorous, I have learned to do what I need to do when I need to do it (mostly, I am still a human bean (yes, I said bean- it’s from a book, do you know which one?). I’m thinking back to my early days of housewifery and what most often kept me from my inner priorities being lived out in my outer man. Thoughts?
