When It All Seems a Blur...
Saying that this week was a busy one would be an understatement. Looking back on the last few days, it all seems a blur, as every day melded into the next. Most were non-stop from dawn 'til midnight with classes, work, and obligations...and as the events piled up each day, so did the dishes in my sink.
How do I get this busy? I ask myself. Of course, most things that occupy my time are non-negotiables. Such as classes, work, rehearsals, and the occasional meal. I really try not to commit to more than I can handle. I had several people call this week wanting to hang out, and I regretfully had to decline. If only there were more hours in a day. (Can we vote on this? I propose that we add more hours to each day. All in favor, say "Aye!")
In an attempt to be completely honest and open here, I have to admit that I didn't really handle my busyness very well. I laughed, I cried, I complained. And now, at the end of the week...I look back and am disappointed in myself. If this crazy week were a test from God, then I highly doubt I passed with flying colors. Instead of giving my stresses to God and trusting Him to help me, I freaked and let it consume me.
This lesson I have learned is all too familiar. It is one that I have been taught a multitude of times...and this probably isn't the last either.
I will continue to try not to over commit myself, but in the meantime...during those days and weeks which are crazy, I want to be able to give it to God and let Him help me.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." -Matthew 11:28
With all that said, I have to brag on my husband a little...
Last night, when I got home late from rehearsal, I walked in the door to a clean house (all the dishes done and everything!) And he then, that precious husband of mine took me out to dinner and to see a chick flick that I've been wanting to see for a while. I am truly blessed, my friends.
