New series: Brown Bag Mondays: I see Mondays as a fresh start, another opportunity to face the week head on and move forward living life. But as the week wears on, I recognize our ideals don’t always play out the way we think. My heart for this series to provide you with something you can use or chew on as you go about your hours and days in the week ahead.
This is how my family calendar has looked for the first half of this month.
Not that we had nothing to do…quite the opposite. But I hesitated to write down all the things that were filling it up, because, well, I rather liked the look of those blank spaces. It is my soul craving some unstructured time amidst all the structure that keeps us on track.
I find it easy enough to plan for things that are consistent in our days…time with the Lord, school, work, church, chores, weekly or monthly gatherings with friends. But sometimes I fail to plan for the unexpected like school events and appointments and suddenly our unstructured time is nibbled at bit by bit.
As summer vacation draws near, I want to be mindful of our time…to balance the structured with the unstructured. To allow breathing room for the unexpected to be easily accommodated into the structure of our days.
So here is this week’s “brown bag monday” question:
I think when we feel overwhelmed, it’s because we’re not leaving enough time in our schedule to handle the things we can’t plan for…the extra load of laundry required from an ill child, the repairman we need schedule for a leaky faucet, the errands we need to run because we forgot something on our list, the moments our children ask us to sit and read, or color or play a game, the friend who would love to get together, the unexpected blessing of sun in string of rainy days.
