from time to time

every so often i don't want any responsibilities
every so often i feel discouraged
every so often i encourage someone else
every so often i would love to have a dozen more children
every so often i forget how blessed I am that I married my husband, or that he married me
every so often the world scares me as a Mommy till I remember that my hope is not in this world
every so often i want to live in the south along a river
every so often my children tire me out
every so often i feel like wonder woman
every so often i am so organized, i wonder how i could ever have a chaotic day
every so often i wonder how i can ever get anything done
every so often i walk away from it all and just sit outside and laugh with my children
every so often i want to escape on a date with my husband
every so often i want to gather all my little ones and hold them forever
every so often i like to garden
every so often i think how the garden needs too much work, so i ignore it
every so often i am on fire pioneering our church
every so often i can't balance it all

but one thing that is never 'every so often', is Jesus!

He is the same yesterday, today and forever. I'm thankful for this.

He is always there in times of uncertainty to guide me back.
