I have this tendency to fix my eyes on all that I need to accomplish (which right now is a lot) and then it's full steam ahead! As the wheels get rolling I tend to become less and less concerned with what's alongside the road - which includes such things as my husband, my girls, my friends, my good-attitude (to name a few).
I just had to stop today - literally, to give myself a 10 minute time-out! During that time, I asked God to forgive me for being so busy. Busyness is not God's idea - it's one we've come up with all on our own. Busyness robs me of precious connections with my family, precious time with my Creator - it wears me out, shortens my fuse and really just makes me an all-around grouch! So today, I had a time-out! And it was good. I'm wondering what my girls didn't like about them...I'm hoping to have another one tomorrow!
