picture me {im}perfectly.fitting things in

just because i can fit more things
into my days
doesn’t mean i should.

because in most most cases,
i shouldn’t.


there are a lot of things
i could easily
add to my list of responsibilities
but it takes time to do things
and my family needs me right now.
they need so much of me.
and i need so much of them.
they help me to slow down
and to see what is really important in life:
all of those
tiny nearly insignificant things
that are really actually
the most significant things.


but it takes me not agreeing
to lots and lots of other things.
just because i could probably make them work.

and that is a struggle for me.
such a struggle.
because i do like doing things
but sometimes,
(and i am only now just learning this)
i can’t do everything.
not everything
will or can
be done.
and i have to be okay with that.

because all of this.
all of this life.
each one of these moments we are living
and breathing in,
they are enough.
doing more doesn’t always equal fulfillment.


and these children,
they are enough.
because our God,
He is enough.
oh, how He is enough.


and that brings me to
this summer.

oh, how i’m already dreaming of this summer.
this summer will be quite different for us than past summers
(more on that later).

and this is inspiring me.
i love this.
i am so inspired.


i want to just soak up the moments of this summr.
this summer that already seems to be fleeting.
and so i must be intentional.
i must choose wisely.
and realize and put into action
that He is enough.


Jennifer’s words
so resonated with me.
i often start things and then
have a difficult time following through with them.
i am so glad for her reminders.
