{ Do What You Can }

Sometimes, life as a mom doesn't slow down long enough to let you catch a breath, much less feel like you have enough time to even open your Bible long enough to sustain your own learning and growing in grace. 

That is okay.  Just do what you can. 

Most mornings I get up before the children so I can get a head start on the day.  I get dressed, then sit down with my coffee to read a few chapters of the Bible and pray.  I learned very early on that I needed to just accept the fact that some days will be better than others and some nights as well.

One particular week recently we had a bought of sickness run through.  The little one was the last to get it and it just took her down. As you know, when the littles get sick, mama doesn't get a lot of down time, much less time to open the Bible.  That is okay though. Just do what you can.  When you do get a minute, open your Bible and take a little time to fill your heart with anything from its pages. 

It won't be long that they are needing you so much.  It won't be long that you won't have time.  They grow up and move on into their own lives.  It was meant to be that way.  It is okay.

In the meantime, just do what you can.  When you can.
