When the To-Do List Gets Long…

Our list of things to be done in this house is never ending. We need to sell it so badly, but we don’t have the time to get it “just right”. Weekends are out of control with our schedule, and quickly our weekdays are becoming very busy.

Tomorrow will be an incredibly busy Sunday, and we’ll be running from start to finish.

We need rest. By this time every night, our eyes are so heavy. The kids are finally asleep, and we really need to spend this time working on chores.

About three or four times a week, we look at each other in the evening and say, “There is so much I need to do, I’m just SO TIRED.”

So, because it’s late, and because I’m worn slap out…I’ll leave you with this and call it a day:

The list we’re working on…we’re working on it together.
The places we have to be…we’re going there together.
The decisions we have to make…we are praying through them together.
And at night, when we’re dog tired and can finally lie down on our pillows…we’re there together.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
