Thou shalt rest?

My goals for the day are:
Do dishes
Do 3 loads of laundry, fold it and PUT IT AWAY!
Mop the kitchen floor
Be patient
Make a grocery list (and menu)
Bathe Bella
Work on writing ABC's w/ Asher
Water gardens
Rest my sore knee
Brush my, I forget to do that sometimes ;)
Make homemade teething biscuits
Make peach baby food and freeze
Make dinner
Practice the guitar
Make time for God

As I read over that list two things come to mind: 1. Rest my sore knee? Um, no, not with a list like that. Being diligent is great but right now it has become a sickness for me and now my injury will never heal at this rate. I think it's because I realized that I was becoming idle with my time and now I'm trying to make up for lost time. I mean, I've always been busy and never really lazy (since becoming a mom anyways) but I am starting to realize that I can use my time better -all for serving my family and thus my God better. Okay, 2. Make time for God was the last thing on my list and I didn't do that on purpose, I just typed away as they came to mind. Making time for God should have been the 1st thing on my list and then maybe all of those things would come easier...especially the patience part! So, my frame of mind today will not be the usual "be a diligent wife", it will be "Thou shalt rest"! Gotta go and switch the laundry over...oh, I think I hear the baby waking up, well, if I dont fold it right away then it will wrinkle, Asher has watched enough cartoons this morning, he needs to play, what's the weather gonna be like today...maybe I need to go water the gardens NOW before they burn up...THIS is why I the title of a book comes to mind, "Men Are Like Waffles and Women Are Like Speghetti"....genious theory and oh so true in my case. What I wouldnt give to be able to compartmentalize all of my random thoughts, whims, and tasks....I so love organization. Oh yea, THOU SHALT REST!!!
