I think if I was to sum up my life this summer the apprpriate word would be - unfinished! I've made good starts on de cluttering, plannimg and scheduling but seem to run out of time to actually finish any of it!
Today my aim is to finish preparng for school which begins tomorrow! I have an idea of what I want to achieve and have planned what we do and when but it is actually reading the material and having it to hand that I have still got to do.
I'm not sure if I just take too much on or am just not self disciplined enough or its just the season of lfe with 5 young children but things are pretty difficult, my house has got out of control with the constant feeding of baby which hasn't got much better now she's teething and every night I get to hear mice in our ceiling - (we're trying to figure out the best way of dealing with this problem as regards mouse traps and children as we'd have to put the traps in the childrens bedroom as that is the floor they are under) but through it all I know God is with me and I know that these precious children are more important than a nice tidy house and I know that God is preparing a house for us and will enable us to move at the right time - I can see Him working in our life and I know I can trust Him even when everyone else lets me down!
We're also praying for a family vehicle as we are without reliable transport that we can all fit in but once again I know God can and will provide and He tells us in Matthew 6:25
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
We have the Above Rubies Family Retreat in October which I am organising, and we have to get to Scotland for it so I am trusting that God will provide!
