Will I ever catch up?!

Sometimes I feel that life is passing me by, not slowly either, but with ropes of steam and spark-spattered wheels and a hoarse roar of power or terror. It's passing, yet I'm the one who's doing all the moving.
~Martin Amis, Money

Don't know about you...but I need more time!
I LOVE my life, I love my kids, my husband, my friends, my family...yet, I simply do not have enough time.

I get up early. I make lists...I check them twice. I have skipped my workout twice this week to try to catch up. Still behind. Projects never ending. Kids homework daily. Photo albums yearning to be up to date.

I am in constant motion...yet, still can't seem to catch up.

Guess I need to accept that this is just the way it is.
Life is hard, but GOD IS GOOD.
Life is a wild roller coaster, but GOD IS CONSTANT.
Life is unpredictable & trying...GOD IS FAITHFUL.

And in the end, all my moving means nothing if I am not in line with God's Will. He is the Maker and Keeper of all things...including my time.

yeah, i remember someone telling me one time that God gives me the perfect amount of time for each day. And that He isn't pleased with me filling it up with everything else. I have to remind myself of that all the time. Including today. Great post!!! And I agree, you are amazingly effective at what you do, Ms. Katie!
