Sometimes daily life has such a beautiful steady rhythm to it. Getting up early is almost easy. There is time to read the Bible, exercise, and get dressed before the kids wake up.
There is energy to cover the basics of child-training and homeschooling and then explore the world together. After all the normal housework is done, there is time to pursue goals and cross things of the to-do list.
It’s a season of bounty and blessing.
Then something happens.

Suddenly, you enter a season of survival. Just getting the basics done becomes a struggle and the to-do list sits untouched for weeks.
