So Are You Busy?

My husband, Philip, tells me that I need to keep my blog updated with what is going on here at A Romantic Porch.

Really? I love my blog. I love to update. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. Why can't I get everything done?

Well lets just say that I have decorated 34 Christmas Trees since November 19th. But that is just stuff I have done on the side...worked it in as I found the time kind of thing...thankful for the extra work.

No the trees aren't the ones I decorated for OUR house. It was for others.

Did I get photos? Well no, but Philip did on some of them. I was too busy running from tree to tree and house to house of course, between my regular work (cleaning) and fashion design jobs.

A couple of years ago, a dear friend said to me, "You are the busiest person I know." Her words pierced and broke my heart. Since that time, I've secretly worn her words like a thorn. She didn't say I was a godly example or a good wife or a great mother or a faithful friend. These are the things in life that matter the most to me.

The other day a lady was talking to me about a hard time they were going through and I told her that the way we live is so important because the only thing that we will take from earth to heaven is our relationships, our relationship with God and others.

Life has taken a toll on our family just like so many other stories that I hear and my husband and I have made committments that we will keep. It has come at a busy price I suppose. I just pray that God's light shines through my life as I work and meet the needs of my family. God is good ALL the time. I pray for HIS strength.

So are you burning the candle at both ends so to speak?
