Ahh, it is Sunday again! It seems that my long list of to-dos for the week ahead keep me working hard with laundry, meal planning, and general housework for the majority of my Sundays. My church has Saturday night services so the fam and I attend worship then. Hubby LOVES this cause he gets to sleep-in on Sundays. I usually sleep in a little later myself but once my feet hit the floor, I feel an inside angst to put my skates on and start my mounds of work.
Some Sundays I just wonder what it would be like NOT to have to dread going to work the next day and actually having a little time to get housework done at various times throughout the week. Some Sundays, I wish I was a stay-at-home mom.
Usually, I don’t fret about being a working mom cause I know our financial situation DEMANDS that I keep on clocking in to de-ol-workplace. Don’t get me wrong, I know that staying at home is a lot of work.
It is just that my girls are school age and I work while they are at school and then I pick them up right after school and begin homework, dinner etc. The weekends tend to be a whirl wind of birthday parties, church, my Zumba class and then it is SUNDAY all over again. It SEEMS like if I didn’t have to work, I would have more time to get things done while the girls are in school.
Well, all that my be true but as in the words of one of the 9th grade girls from my small group at church: “It is what it is…bruh”.
So, since it IS WHAT IT IS…bruh (teenagers make me laugh), there is no need in me sitting around here daydreaming/grumbling.
I made a list of my 3 MIT (most important things) today:
1. Finish Laundry
2. Prepare Dinner
3. Go outside with the girls for 30 minutes (It is C-O-L-D here!)
Then, I am gonna let all the other stuff go and just “BE” today.
Philippians 2:14 (NIV)
Do everything without grumbling or arguing
What a wonderful mantra for the week ahead:
Philippians 2:14-15 (The Message)
Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God.
Let’s all be a breath of fresh air this week!
