3rd baby and crafting?

With my third baby on the way I have to ask myself: When will I get it all done? I love to crochet, I still haven’t finished the quilt for my 2nd little girl, I need to clean, I work from home for a local store on their website, my half hearted attempt at this blog and I have two other little girls who need attention and will soon have an infant who will spend many hours nursing! When will it all get done!? There is always a break in my crocheting or crafting after having a baby, that is just to be expected. But last night as I was trying to fall asleep and my new little jumping bean was having a party in my stomach I couldn’t help but think: How in the heck am I going to do this!? The passage I have been focusing as of late is from Lamentations 3: 22-24 

22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.”

I have been fixated on the: “You will not be consumed” and that his compassions are “new every morning.”  How I need to hear that over, and over and over again. I will not be consumed, I will not be consumed, his compassions NEVER fail. Never. Now if I can just live that out I may just make it, and not just make it but thrive.

  1. Just take one day at a time. You will quickly learn what is just not going to happen. And that’s ok! But I always, always, always picked up in the evening before bed, and didn’t leave dirty dishes in the sink. These two things, in addition to making your bed, will keep a sense of order in your world. It may make you feel better if I tell you that I am 31 years behind on making my kids’ photo albums, though!
