Day 82

“But you are such a heavy load to carry! How can I deal with all your problems and bickering?” (Deuteronomy 1:12 NLT)

I’m actually writing this a day late. But as I sit here, trying to wrestle my thoughts into something approaching a deep and spiritual place, I am distracted by the children!

One is listening to her latest CD. Grrrrrrrr!

One needs help with his homework. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

One is looking for any excuse not to do her homework.

And maybe, just maybe, at a time like this, what is important is not to read the Bible but to spend time with the kids. Because, Lord knows, they need it! I mean: LITERALLY “Lord knows”!

Lord give me strength to carry my burden. I need your help today!
