Is it summer already? When did spring end and summer begin? Last month it was still cold, and rainy, now we’ve hit the 80 degree temps with the awful side of summer storms!

How can it already be mid-June? I have so much to do and so little time! Thankfully I am organized enough to make weekly checklists, but I still find myself going crazy thinking about all the planning for the Fall, summer VBS and children’s ministry, and looking forward to vacations and such!

This is my first summer being somewhat full-time (less than 2 months until internship is over!). I do enjoy working, but the time flies just like during the year and I want to enjoy the warm weather while it’s here!

How do I find a balance between work and play? Finding a happy medium seems to be more difficult in the summer, a time I want to take in as much as I can!

I guess I am going to take it one day at time, one task at a time, one moment at a time. My prayers lately have been something like this:

“God, please help me! I can’t do this!”
I’m overwhelmed. I’m stressed.

Yet, it’s summer – and relaxing is a must. I will get to that point. I will find a balance.
God…please help.
