I really want to try to stop multitasking. I am really starting to believe that I cannot do any of the five things well. But maybe it isn’t the multitasking itself, it’s the amount of multitasking. Can I watch TV and work on the computer? Probably. But I cannot really remember what I watched. I want to work hard and BE THERE when I’m there.
Today I fixed the curtains in Elliott’s room. I had to sew them together and then fold them in half and sew them again. Let’s just say that my original trim job on them was done without proper planning. But now they are doubled over and will (hopefully) keep out mean Mr. Sun at 5 am.
As I was ironing the curtains before I sewed them, I started really thinking about how soothing ironing was. The heavy green cotton became warm and smooth as I passed the iron across the fabric. I thought about how God takes us–wrinkled, stained, torn, and with a wave of His hand, makes us new. It isn’t a task that is rushed or considered unimportant. He just takes us and makes us perfect. And like the iron, he often needs to apply some heat and pressure in order for us to be our best.
