Probably this is the busiest time of the year for me and it gets difficult to see my way through the mountains of paperwork for my seven sections and two classes at BYU. Not to mention preparing for a new semester, hiring new instructors, setting up certification clinics for January! That is just a part of my assignments. Then on to Young Women's and the size of that job as well. Then of course preparations for Christmas for my family, oh, and get ready for a family reunion on Our Cruise on Jan. 1st. I guess there comes a time, I must go and reload or I am no good to anyone. Maybe the cruise is where I reload, huh???
BUT.....don't get me wrong, I am so grateful for the work. It keeps me thinking ahead, and of other things. I guess I relate very well to my daughter in trying to be everything to everyone and perfect in everything that there comes a moment of "I am drowning here". I think I'm there. Drowning that is.
I have a truckload of weaknesses that I keep trying to work on, only to fail daily. But that said, it does do one thing and that it brings me closer to my Heavenly Father who knows me perfectly. I am sure he is laughing a bit up there at me, don't you? Or maybe he is just saying "My dear Daughter, just Come to me and I will give you rest!"
AND, another thing those weaknesses do is to teach me that I can't do or be everything my heart desires to be. I just don't have that capacity. I just don't have the insight or the strength enough. But He does! So today, I am working at letting HIM take all my burdens, at least I will try.
