On every level of life, from housework to heights of prayer, in all judgement and efforts to get things done, hurry and impatience are sure marks of the amateur.

Evelyn Underhill


Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I’ve ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing… Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away.

We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.

 


Joshua 24:15

Sometimes moms resort to acts of desperation.

I blame myself, really, for letting it get to this point.

Perhaps I should’ve trained them all better.

Alas.  I didn’t.
