It's easy to do. You're standing there at 8:30 at night, still washing the dinner dishes. Your day started at 5:30 a.m., and you've gone without stopping. And looking ahead into your night, you realize that before 'bed' happens, you still have to nurse a baby, start that last load of laundry, pick up the toys in the living room, send a couple of e-mails, and maybe...maybe you'll get to take a shower. Only so you can start it all over again at 5:30 the next morning.
Somehow, the joy left....it walked out the back door. And your spirit droops....and you can feel your attitude turning sour. "Why should I have to do all this work? Nobody understands how HARD I work! The pressures are too great, the responsibilities too heavy! Oh, woe is me! Poor, poor me!" And before you know it, you sound like a whiny four year old. (Saying 'YOU sound like' is easier than admitting that this has actually been me on several occasions---thus, the reason for not writing this in first person, haha)
Sound familiar? If so, please, please, please, go read this . This experienced mother puts it so much more clearly than I ever could. It's a beautiful post.......call on Jesus.....sing to Jesus......give Him your unnecessary burden......read this post, and be blessed! :)
