picture me {im}perfectly.late

oh, how good it feels to be back doing this
picture me {im}perfectly thing.


if you have a blog,
link up!


i hope
and think
and pray
that this will move hearts
in blogland.

but i need your help.


nearly everywhere i go
(and that is a lot of places
throughout the week)
i am late.


now, my husband and my first born
do not have this problem.
not at all.
actually, most sundays,
the boys are waiting in the car
for the girls to finish getting ready for church.
it’s pathetic.
i’m pathetic.

i just cannot get my act together.
i don’t think it’s that i somehow enjoy
the (painful) rush once i realize that
i am going to be late to get the kids from school
yet again
and that i
need to book it
in order to not be embarrassingly late
(note: it’s not the ideal time to get in a quick workout).


what i do know it is is that i’m selfish.
i am so very selfish.
and i
think that i can get one more thing done
before heading out the door –
wherever it may be that i am going.

but the
hard and
ugly truth is,
i can’t.
and that i’m not thinking of anyone
besides myself
in those situations.
and what i want to do.
rather than what i need to do.
and what it means to the person on the other end.


so there you have it.
one of a billion illustrations
as to why you should
picture me {im}perfectly.
so please do.
picture me {im}perfectly. 


picture me {im}perfectly
is a weekly project to reveal
that we don’t have it all together.


i will post a

revealing that:


you are not picture perfect,

your kids are not picture perfect,

your house is not picture perfect,

other women

that none of us have it all together.

We who are strong
ought to bear with the failings of the weak
and not to please ourselves.
