I know what it is.

I just don’t know how to find it.

It’s time.

I’m missing time.

I’m missing the hours of reading and thinking and writing….that have been replaced with lesson plans, early rising, after-school meetings, and all the other “mom” stuff that somehow has to squeeze itself into the midst of all of the “work” stuff.

I know lots of us live with this constant struggle of juggling all our responsibilities.

Tonight, I’m realizing that I still have so much to learn about the art of keeping so many different parts of life running smoothly.

I’ve heard this analogy about life and juggling.  While tossing all kinds of different balls into the air, we have to remember that some of the balls are made of crystal.  They are priceless and must be handled with great care.  Drop a crystal ball and life is changed forever.

Lord, help me balance my life and time in such way that in juggling my roles as a mom, wife, teacher, friend, and on and on, I can keep safe those crystal balls that matter most.

cyrstal Lord, redeem my time.

I miss You.
