who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts
to give the light
of the knowledge
of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ."
I Corinthians 4:6***
Schoolwork fills our mornings lately, and usually spills over into afternoon.
Where does this leave time for blogging? Baking? Stacking firewood?
Doing something with all those apples!
It's a crunch to get anything done
after the school chores end and before the dinner chores begin.
I'm not complaining;
I have lots of help at the ready! But I also have
half finished tutu's on the couch, felt in a bag on the wood-box designated
for Aloria's Christmas stocking,
pounds and pounds of apples blocking the front door so it only opens part-way,
folded stationary needing to be tied up in ribbon,
a gift awaiting tissue paper and some postage stamps,
canned pumpkin on the counter
hoping to made into something yummy.......
There's no shortage of fun things I can't quite get to!
Tonight I had big plans for making bread, folding laundry, reading to my little Bugs,
maybe even checking off a few things on the list above.
Alas, 8 in the evening finds me completely without steam.
The starch (if you will) is taken right out of me.
It was a full day that started dark and early with crisp fall chill followed by crackling fire;
a hot morning bath and quiet, uninterrupted Bible reading time;
it was a day that saw much accomplished,
and also not enough.
Now I could start the next thing and instead I choose bed.
A prudent decision, but not without some regret.
Tomorrow starts off with the same list of things to do, and probably more.
The good news?
All my long list will be there to chip away at tomorrow!
That same tidbit of reality is both the hard fact, and the sweet hope.
Tomorrow is a new start, with (hopefully) new energy,
new inspirations, and it's own hiccoughs that I can't predict.
(and I'm glad for that!)
Tomorrow looks promising.
And so does bed.
