too busy?

This morning, I woke up with a long list of things to do.

House to clean. Food to cook. Bills to pay.

Errands to run. Plans to make. Friends to call.

Words to write. Pictures to take. People to encourage.

Sometimes I am overwhelmed by my list. Until I remember, all I am really  doing is managing my blessings. :)

Isn’t it funny how the word busy seems to suck the life out of the realization that much of what we’re busy doing is managing the innumerable blessings in our life?

The reality is … I am living in the lopsided favor of God.

And my life is so saturated by His mercy, there is surplus to manage. I don’t ever want to forget ~ or get so busy that I fail to remember ~ my cup overflows.

So this morning, I am looking at that mound of laundry with new eyes. And what about you? How are you living in the lopsided favor today?
