The Homeschool Minute ~ Gena Suarez
Take a moment to stop and pray. Slow down a minute OK? You have lots to do today and the important stuff will get done. The house may not be perfect, but really, is that the most important thing? I know you’d like to have things organized and running more smoothly, but there are times when leaning on your Heavenly Father to get you through the day is more important than the best organizational system.
Did you know your Heavenly Father watches you all day long? He gazes at you during sleep as well. He is the ultimate parent. You are a reflection, an imperfect (cracked?) mirror, but that’s ok because where you lack, He is right there. He is strong when you are weak. He succeeds where you fail. He catches you (and your children) when you are slipping and falling.
So slow down. Breathe. Wait on Him for your next step and to help you get organized. Did you forget that He directs your day? He ordained it all, and He is not worried, so you stop fretting, Mama. Go make some lunch and play with those kids He gave you. Gaze on them the way He gazes on you.
P.S. Check out these articles from the magazine for tips for getting organized:
