More than enough

The mountain of laundry multiplies. Dirty dishes soak. Groceries are put away just in time to make lunch, just in time to clean up, just in time to start dinner.

Always behind. Always rushing. Always worried about tomorrow.

What if for one day I stopped thinking of what comes next? What if I lived in this moment thanking God that I have just enough for right now?

Just enough clean clothes to dress the kids and just enough clean dishes. Just enough in the cupboard to feed small hungry bellies. Just enough for this moment.

Just enough grace. Just enough love. Just enough strength. Just enough patience.

Moment by moment. Day by day. Trusting tomorrow to Him; living in this moment.

    I love to see how God is working in you in the multiple tasks of motherhood/wifehood/pastor’s wife. It was exciting to hear that your boys’ adoption is now finalized. Your posts bring back many memories of my life as wife/mother of five-in-sixteen-years, and I find them encouraging. May God continue to bless your writing gift!
