Notes on Time to a Younger Mother…Something to Think About

I am, by nature, an introvert.

God, by nature, likes to stretch us beyond our comfort levels.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

I, by nature, wanted one child.

God, by nature, gave me four children!

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

I, by nature, want to create.

God, by nature, wants to create.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

 

He understands your many responsibilities, the many things that pull on you as a woman. You must ask Him to help you find the minutes here and there.  You must ask Him to show you how to organize your projects in a way that will work for you.

For example, when I’m working on a project, I will often pin or sticky note a note to myself to tell me what the next step is, so that I can go back to it without rethinking it.  I also have several projects going at once.  So, I try to do all the cutting out that I can at once.  The next time, I try to do all the marking I can at once.  Next time, it’s all the pinning I can do at once.  Then, all the sewing I can do at once.  Then all the pressing.  I’m sure you get the picture.

I want blocks of time.  God gives me minutes.

I’m trying to learn to discipline myself to use those minutes more wisely.

Happy at Home with my four wonderful blessings!

6, 8, 10, and my teenager

If you’d like to see a photo of my blessings, you can find them on my other blog, Harvest Lane Cottage.  Just scroll down on my Day Book entry.

  1. Hello, have looked at the photo of your beautiful children. I thoroughly enjoyed “Blessed Be Your Name”. It is one I am familiar with as it is one of the songs often sung in our Sunday Service at Desert Vineyard in Lancaster.
