This has been one of the dreariest day I have seen in Cambridge. The sky is grey, it has been raining since we woke before dawn, the house is quiet and there is a general heaviness in my spirit. Ben has been sick for the last couple days which has left me single parenting three children with no balance. Balance, yes another post on balance – something we are forever trying to achieve.
Mother. Wife. Friend. Housekeeper. Cook. Nurse (I fail dismally at this). Secretary.
Wanting to not settle into mediocrity but longing to be better, pursue excellence, make a difference. These are the heartaches we face and I realize that more than anything, I think we just want peace. It isn’t about how many checkmarks we have in each category. It isn’t about how many hours a week we devote to self, to family, to study or to prayer. It’s not. God does not care if we set aside 15 minutes a day to pray but rather He wants our entire lives to be an act of prayer and of worship.
It’s about peace.
It’s about finding peace within ourselves and with God.
Then and only then will we feel like we have achieved balance.
