Two Steps Forward and One Step Backward

Well I continue on the quest for balance in my life. I did great on Monday. Yesterday, well, not as well. It seems on the days that I am more tired, or not feeling up to par, it is easier to fall back into old habits. I did not get as many things accomplished and found myself on the computer a little more than I should have. I guess that is how sin is in our lives. It is so easy to creep back into that sin nature and not realize it.

But today is a new day. I praise God that He loves us and continues to love us even when we fail. Today is the day to start tackling that stack of home school papers that need to be filed and to make plans for tomorrow's writing club. It's a day to tame the paper stacks on my kitchen counter. So I'm off for a hot cup of tea and to finish up school work with my sons.

Hi:) First I want to thank you for your words of encouragement and prayers for my surgery and recovery. It really means a lot.

And second, I so relate to your post today. I could've written it myself! I look forward to your future posts.

Blessings,
Melissa

I thought about your blog the entire time I was blogging about the irritants in my life turned into pearls. I know what you mean about balance. It is so hard to maintain. So with a bit of humor and a lot of leaning on God I wonder, "Will we ever achieve balance here on earth? Maybe only in the perfect garden is there balance - right now we are living in the jungle- you know, Jesus said 'in it, but not of it.' " I have to think that it keeps us streched so we constantly seek Him. I say this to try to keep from feeling too frustrated when my days seem to be so off balance! After all to lean on Him is an off balance stance!
