These are the questions I’m asking myself as I go through each day as a Christian wife, mother, and homemaker. Is all of the busyness really necessary? Sometimes it is, especially when you’re part of a family with different needs, interests, and goals. But sometimes I’m creating unnecessary complications for myself, and trying to do too much!
Like the pile of sewing I had hoped to accomplish. I’m giving myself permission to ignore that. And after getting a second-degree burn while canning applesauce last Saturday, I decided that apple butter made in the crock-pot and frozen is great! And we’re dehydrating lots of the apples, too, which is something the kids can do all on their own. I’m simplifying wherever possible. I tend to over-plan.
When, really, only one thing is necessary.
What about you? Do you ever plan too many things and then find you can’t accomplish them all?
Have you ever used Manuka honey to heal a burn? I’m using colloidal silver spray and Manuka honey on my burn, and I’m wondering how well it’s going to heal. I’ve never had a 2nd-degree burn before, so I don’t have much experience with it!
