We started homeschooling again last week, and are starting a new routine this week. It’s scary how full our week is. I don’t want to have such a busy life. I’m also expert at wasting time, and procrastinating when I feel overloaded, which of course makes things worse.
We are doing both swimming and gymnastics, which is probably a mistake, as it means two afternoons out in a row, on Monday and Tuesday, and then on Wednesday I take Nature Boy and Kitty to violin. The best thing about Wednesday is that I can sit in a comfortable squishy chair for nearly an hour at violin, and my husband and Curly cook dinner and look after the baby. Bliss. I also enjoy the music therapy.
There’s a pile of mending behind the couch, and a pile of books that need sorting out on the lounge floor. But I’m learning that He is everywhere in every moment. I want to know His Presence in the mess and muddle that is my life. I want to know Him, not just about Him. I’ve just dipped my toes in His ocean. I want to swim.
