"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

How do you do it all?

I always giggle inside when someone asks me that question.  

Then I sigh, knowing the truthful answer to that question.  

I don't do it all.  

I don't craft.  
I don't bake pies.
I don't sew.
My kids don't get to do fun crafts or art projects very often.
I don't put fancy braids in my girls' hair.
You know those cleaning check lists that give you all the fall and spring cleaning tasks like cleaning windows and cleaning behind your oven?  I don't really do those.
I don't teach Sunday School.
I have a cleaning lady that helps with the once a month deeper cleaning.
I don't get my nails done.  
Some of the walls in my house are still bare.  
I don't color my hair, or get it cut very often for that matter.
I always feel behind.
I don't run 5K's or triathlons.  Ok, I don't exercise.
I don't watch TV.  (Well, other than Parenthood, Downton Abbey, and HGTV Design Star which I watch online.)

See?  I don't do it all.  You have to choose what you spend your time and energy on.  Some of the above list I would love to do.  If you do them, great!  But, you can't do it all.

I love this post!! You described my thoughts on that question. I always just say "by the grace of God alone!!". I just don't do other things. We have chosen to accept His blessings and all that entails. Someday when I am older and pineing for these days with the little ones, I will sew, do fancy art projects with grandkids, and sit down to sip coffee while it is still warm. Lol. Our adventure is at www.NapClan.com when I find time to post;-)
