I have 4 small children under the age of 5.
But there IS always enough time.
There IS the time necessary to train, love, protect my children and enough time to be a helpmeet to my husband.
I know there is because I know that God would not bless me with more then I can handle, and I know that He commands me to train my children and help my husband.
Therefore, there HAS to be enough time.
On a more experiential note, I’ve seen again and again that there is enough time to fulfill my responsibilities as a trainer, mother, protector, and teacher, and if I make it a priority, there is (usually) enough strength to not fall asleep while my poor husband is talking to me at the end of the day. (Pacing around while we talk or a 5:00 PM coffee may be necessary.)
What there is NOT always enough time for is checking Facebook 27 times to see if people have liked my clever status, following more then a couple worthwhile blogs, staying in touch with more then just a few friends, and keeping up on more then one hobby.
There is NOT even the time to do the outside ministries I’d LOVE to do because right now – I need to remember this is my ministry.
There is NOT enough time to feel sorry for myself because I want more contact with others or more thank yous for my constant efforts to keep the house semi-clean, the kids alive, and food made. (Actually more then wanting thank yous, I’d at least like less complaining…)
It just gets down to realizing what IS important – and what’s not. When I realize what IS important, I realize there IS enough time for it.
