Holy Moly can I just tell you that busy is not better, and today as Friday is hitting I crave being a Mary and shoving the Martha 6 feet under.
The last week or so has been insanely busy.
In ministry there is times where you can control your schedule and times where you can't.
I let it get out of balance a little bit this past week and I'm pulling the reigns tight, so if you want a piece of me take a number and I'll see you in March, okay or on Pinterest.

In the middle of this my hubby had a sinus infection that he lovingly passed to me, okay I asked for it. He wouldn't kiss me because he didn't want to get me sick but I MADE his kiss me, and well he's better and I'm not. Bottom Line, MY FAULT.
My youngest got the same thing.
My two older all had puking episodes somewhere in the middle of that.
I am 100% convinced that we all got our sickness ailments because we were run down and exhausted! This momma will be pulling the chains a whole lot tighter and protecting my babies and hubby a whole lot better. I control my calendar, and I should. I understand their are busy seasons, and my husband and I are 100% all in, but if we are exhausted and run down everyone including our family will get left overs.
Balance = Good Thing.
Team player - great thing
However sometimes people on your team need a time out, before they burn out.
I remember in our church planting day's trying very hard not to fill the calendar to overflowing so our volunteers wouldn't burn out.
Busy isn't better.
What's on your calendar that you can purge ?
Are you being intentional with your church calendar ?
