Unbalanced Day

Jan 18

Today was an unbalanced day. I wish I did a better job of sticking to the plan: God's plan for my day. Instead I get caught up in so many things that don't matter. I forget what's important so quickly. I wish I was one of "those people" who knew how to stick to the plan. They spend time doing the most important stuff and letting the rest go. Me: I try to do everything. I try to squeeze it all into one day. I'd put a month into one day if time allowed. The ridiculous part is that the busyness doesn't satisfy me. It's the good stuff that satisfies me: a good book, a page written in my journal, a long walk, some time in prayer, meditating on some scripture, watching the snow fall, spending some cuddle time with my kids and leaving an hour at the end of my day to be with my husband. That's the stuff that keeps me in balance. That's the stuff that satisfies me. Tomorrow I need to remember today. I need to remember how I feel now- at the end of my unbalanced day: depleated. Lucky for me that tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow I can choose again and remember what's really important. When my head hits the pillow tomorrow night I'm going to be satisfied. If you're reading this please say a prayer for me. Pray that I'll choose the good stuff and let the rest go. I'll pray for you too, if you need help finding balance also. We could help each other have a better tomorrow.

Tears for Dancing, Age 42 

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven. Until then, I'm going to paint, I'm going to write, and I'm going to share when I find hope in this life. That's why I'm here at Journey on Canvas.
