Fish, Loaves,and Me

Lately I've felt a little "stretched-too-thin." Between taking care of the house, taking care of Andrew, taking care of my family in general, and getting some time to myself, I just have been feeling like there just aren't enough hours in the day to do what I need to do, let alone what I would like to do. I felt frustrated.
Then on Sunday, the kids at church were watching bits of "Finding Faith in Christ." When the miracle of Christ feeding the 5,000 came on, I had some personal revelation (that I'm embarassed to admit I hadn't thought of before). If He could divide those few fish and loaves of bread, he can (and will) certainly help me divide my time. I might not be able to do everything, every day. But He can also help me prioritize so that I'm happy with what I can do.
It doesn't seem like much, but it has really helped me to feel more organized and calm.
