1. This is an area, Sandy, that is so close to my heart and something I spent hours processing as a mom. I want to pray about this today and write a longer response later. My husband wants to go for coffee . . . see there will be a day when balance is should I go out for coffee with my honey this morning or this afternoon. You are in the thick of it now and it is such a great stage of momness.

    More later.

  2. I love that you wrote that it's not about balance, it's about Jesus. Yes and amen. It is tricky, sometimes, to walk the tightrope of home and ministry–a tension I often resented and resisted–and for me reconciling that tension meant realizing that for now, home IS my ministry, a season that passes all too quickly. I am encouraged by your desire to be obedient and I am confident that as you seek the Lord He will direct your steps! He is so faithful!

    And it's been experience that parenting is most definitely a floundering around, especially during these teenaged years!

  3. This is something that I struggle with daily — giving the reins to Jesus instead of living out what I feel the agenda should be. Often times what I am doing can be good, but not always best.

    By the way, I think we have the same definition of "present!"
