It seems that the last month has been one of the busiest that I can remember. Work keeps me busy from 7:30 till 5 or so and then I get home to start my evening job. Supper is usually ready by 6(or later) then clean up which I sometimes stick around for and sometimes have evening commitments that require me to be out of the house by 6:30 or 7. My house is full of people. All the beds are full and sometimes the couch and someone is on the floor. I love having all my kids around but I am sorely missing some peace and quiet and space.
This morning I came down to my favorite quiet spot. No one was sleeping on the couch so that was good. Things looked promising for spending some quality time with God. I had my usual devotional readings and stuff but I am finding it very difficult to quiet my mind and “be” with God.
I am hungry for some time alone with him not worrying about when everyone else will start moving around, when I need to grab my few minutes in the shower, just thinking about the inevitable needs of the day, making lists of the things I need to do today.
This weekend will see the rest of my kids around my house. I want them to come but I have homework for my course to do and need some alone time too. Last week I didn’t even get my Saturday grocery shopping done so that will need a couple hours of my time this weekend too.
As a result I haven’t been blogging much. What I have had to say has not been very profound for sure. I will survive but I would rather live than just survive!
