Dirty Dishes

This post has just been sitting in my drafts for a couple of weeks because it makes me nervous but here it goes... I'm baring my soul and my imperfections. And for some reason I feel led to share. Lately I've felt overwhelmed, stressed, busy, uninspired, and I just can't live up to the expectations I've set for myself to be SuperMommy/Wife. The regular ordinary everyday "stuff" - you know toddler sleep issues, never ending dirty dishes, holiday stresses, messy house, biz to-do lists, etc led me to have a little silly "moment" the other day while I was filling up the sink of dirty dishes with soapy water once again. Granted these are silly things to get stressed about (even more so when I look back on this) and my family is extremely blessed but for some reason those everyday things just get to me sometimes. My "moment" ended just in time for me to catch the water and turn it off just before it was about to overflow and it reminded me that when you turn to God, He will never give you more than you can handle. That He may let your "sink" get full but will never let it overflow. ♥ So I decided to let God take care of my "dirty dishes" and not to let all the little things bother me because He is taking care of me. "Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6-7 (NIV)
