Finding Rest



   Sunday night and my usual panic has set in. There is a HUGE list of stuff that needs to be done before Monday morning, and I am no where near being done. Laundry to be folded and put away, dishes need to be washed, lunches made for the hubby and I still haven't went over this weeks school work for my daughter.

 I feel like hiding in my room with some ice cream and turning on my favorite show and just escaping...it would be alright, just this once.....right????

Everyone would understand if I took a much needed mommy "panic" break....I mean after all my worlds will not come crashing down around me if the laundry doesn't get put away!

OK,  so the world wont crash around me...but it will be a lot more difficult for me in the morning when I wake up to a messy kitchen/school area. I will be grumpy and discontent as I scrub dishes while working on a History lesson plan,  and more then likely I will be so rushed cleaning and prepping food that I will skip over, or rush through my morning devotion. And if it is one thing I have realized, that is one thing I can not miss! My WHOLE day is off with out it. I am stressed and feel rushed through out the day if I haven't taken time to talk to God.

 As I sat here and  contemplated my escape, I realize that by doing everything that needs to be done tonight, it will allow me to have a few minutes of peace tomorrow. I will be able to start my day with a clean kitchen and home,  which means I will have more time to sit and be at rest tomorrow.

So tonight I am choosing to keep a smile on my face and tidy my home so that tomorrow I can have rest.

“The wise woman builds her house,
but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.”
Proverbs 14:1

“By wisdom a house is built, & through understanding it is established.”
Proverbs 24:3
