This weeks entry for "Artwords" is Balance~

This word...balance... is weighing heavy on me these days...the more I try to balance, the more I seem to fail in finding that healthy reality, I feel like I am constantly on a scale trying to balance life.

Just like a tornado whirling around in my mind... constant thoughts of what I need get done in a day......taking care of my kids, family, cooking, cleaning, errands, grocery shopping, clean clothes, making lunches, getting kids to school, running home business, clean house, paying bills, doing dishes, washing floors, picking up toys.... the list goes on, it clutters my mind, sometimes I can't sleep at night.....but I am going to find that place where I can let my mind just accept....that things don't have to done in a day, there is always tommorrow~ xoxo

This is too wierd! I *just* emailed David about me not being able to find a balance between cleaning house, the kidlets, getting out, making time for myself so I don't get completely burned out, trying to start a home business, sewing dolls and creating art.

Someone needs to write a book JUST for artists.....lol

For some reason this verse always helps me when I feel overwhelmed:

Philippians 1:6 "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

We sang it this morning during service, which is how it usually comes to my mind. Somehow it calms my heart to know that even when I can't do it all, if I trust and obey, He will guide me in the right path.

Of course, now I just need to work on obeying (got the trust part down :D )...
