Most days I get this feeling; a feeling that I’m not making the most of my time.

Lunch time gets here before I know it and I have barely accomplished anything in my day. I’m convinced that if I could make use of that time to get things done then I’d be able to get enough done in my day, yet I’m not convinced or motivated or something enough to actually make that a permanent change.

Some days I’ll wake up on time and make breakfast on time and really get a good start on my day. But it seems like I can’t cross over from “some days” to “daily habit” or even “most days.”

It’s holding me back.

I know it. I see it. I’ve GOT to manage my time wisely! Even though I’ve scaled back to a tiny little salad plate and what will fit on there, I still feel like my plate is full and only half-eaten at the end of the day.

There is SO MUCH else I want to do! (And I’m not talking about writing novels or knitting scarves – I’m talking about bathing my children and ironing my husband’s clothes.)

Proverbs 6:6-11

6 Go to the ant, O sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise.
7 Without having any chief,
officer, or ruler,
8she prepares her bread in summer
and gathers her food in harvest.
9 How long will you lie there, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man.

That pretty much says it all, don’t you think?

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
