Finding the time - Part 1
All of us have met a super-mom, one of those amazing women who always have a smile on their face, a kind word to speak, with lovely homes and well behaved children, not to mention home cooked meals. And this is not a bad thing, it gives us something to aspire to, after all, God gave us the Proverbs 31 woman and heavens knows no one can truly do all those things! But I do believe we are capable of carving out more time and ordering our lives to be able to prioritize what is important to each of us.
Speaking of this magic woman, I love what the Bible says about her:
Pro 31:27 She looks well to the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.
At its core, I think this means she attends to their well-being, but I also see a deliberation about the way she lives. She is thoughtful and purposeful in attaining good things for her family, and it doesn't happen if she sits around idle.
So for this series I would like to look at some tools, tips, methods, etc. that we use in our own homes to order our time and multiply our productivity. I would LOVE your input and ideas so let the comments roll in!
