Restoring Rhythm

{Rhythm......movement or procedure with uniform or patterned recurrence of a beat, accent, or the like.}

We cling to rhythm, the predictable, knowing what comes next of life. When that beat of life changes it can wreak havoc on a peaceful home. Trust me.

Our home and life typically flow in a simple rhythm that allows for everyone (especially my two with security issues) to feel secure, peaceful, relaxed, balanced. However, in the past few weeks that carefully cultivated beat has dissolved.

Each day is a struggle. A struggle to get school, chores, to-dos, errands, extras done. Constantly we are rushing from one thing to the next to get it all done in a day. And always something is left undone.

Frustration is at an all time high in our home. Little ones {and the big ones} are acting out and creating even more discord.

And so over the next month or so I will be chronicling our journey back to a simple rhythm. Hopefully this will restore some of the peace in our home. May it reign in yours.
