Wednesday, August 15

the last of it

Oh oh.....did you notice the calendar?  AUGUST 15TH.  This is the date that I annually get that feeling in the pit of my stomach about how much there is left to do with the little summer time left.  

Honestly, it seems that August is a month that is traditionally as busy as our December.  LOTS of out of our normal routine activities packed into this month. 

The garden is harvest worthy this time of the year so there's a steady stream of canning to be done.  There's school curriculum for our home schooling that hasn't been ordered yet.  A quilt to be made for a college bound son.  A garage sale to be readied. Soccer practices and games.  Church picnics.  Family gatherings.  Lawns to be mowed.  Plus all the usual things like cooking meals, cleaning the house, doing laundry, connecting with family.

No wonder I'm feeling tired!

It's a season of "all in YOUR strength, Lord!" with a heart's desire to still be following HIS priorities for my day in the midst of all this busyness.  

So, what are you up to at the end of the summer?  Finding time for everything?  Or is your life one of sipping lemonade on the porch?
