Busy Does Not Mean More

As a mom, I sometimes get caught up in thinking that the more I have going on for and with my kids, the more well rounded they will be and the better I will be at this whole parenting thing. I mean, doesn’t it make me a better mother to juggle 3 children to and from extracurricular activities, parties and church?

Nope. Wish it were that easy!

This morning, I read Ecclesiastes 4:6, and it has reminded me that more in my life does not fulfill me. More stuff in my life does not complete me. The only thing that can complete me, the only thing that can complete my children is more of God in our lives.

“Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.”
~Ecclesiastes 4:6
And, you know, as I look back over Christmas break, days of snow and ice, I look back on a piece of this tranquility. We did nothing at our home, we didn’t go anywhere, and we had some of the best days in our home.
Sometimes we say “yes” to too many things and we lose time to truly focus on our purpose. This new year, let’s learn to say “no” and learn to enjoy doing what God calls us to do.

I am a mom of 3 adorable kiddos born in 3 consecutive years. I juggle daily with work outside of the home, managing a family, keeping a house, connecting socially, loving and adoring my husband, and seeking to grow closer with my heavenly Father each step of the way . . . however, this blog will prove my inadequacies in all of the mentioned areas. Humbly, I pray that as I journey through this world of blogging, I will grow closer to my Father and others will be drawn to His feet in praise, as well.
