The Search for More Time

Tiaras & Tantrums Photography The Search for More Time

Time is a precious thing. I am always looking for more of it . . . perhaps the best solution for me is not to work less or devote less energy to my personal life . . . what a minute . .  what personal life . . .  I have no personal life any longer. I'm constantly shuffling my kids from one activity to the next. This crazed momma is ready for summer break. I think that will solve all my problems right now! I'm ready for the freedom I can enjoy by finally having the time I need to do what I really want to do.

But, who am I kidding, I have all of June completely booked FULL and half of July already! Fool, I am! Tired, I am. Time, I'm still searching for more of it.

Just today, I have written several projects that were facing some deadlines. I concentrated on the computer screen, searching for the perfect words. I worked with my girls during school hours. I meet with another homeschool mom for a bit of a quick little meeting about something. I shopped for dinner. I picked my son up from school. I took my son back to school for track practice. I cooked, served, ate and cleaned up dinner. I sat with my girls during violin practice time. I got the kids ready for bed and tucked them in 12 hundred times.  Before I knew it, an hour—then two, then five, then the entire day —has passed and it’s time to head into tomorrow - Thursday . . . where my day is even that more busy than today. Time went fast today, as it did the other night when, unable to sleep, I tossed and turned and begged my brain to shut-up for a few hours!

I'm not just moving through time, my activities are making and shaping time. Time itself, that relentless ticking of the clock is bewitching me.

Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 3:2-11, A time to give birth and a time to die;
         A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted . . . . A time to weep and a time to laugh . . . A time to mourn and a time to dance. A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
         A time to keep and a time to throw away . . . A time to be silent and a time to speak . . . . . nothing is better than that man should be happy in his activities, for that is his lot.
