Matthew 6:25b " not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?"
Just in case you have the pressing down on your chest "I have so much to do" feeling, just remember these liberating words from our Savior. There is so much more to taking care of your little ones than feeding and clothing them. I know all about that burden. Feeding four sons did take up a lot of my time and thoughts. I had a small budget to work with and their stomachs were/are bottomless. Clothes- it was/is a constant burden. It is very easy to get bogged down and schedule the greatest amount of our time concerned with taking care of our childrens physical needs.
But life is so much more than food and much more.
Focus more on this verse. Let it liberate you and take guilt away if you know there is a greater need for snuggles and cuddles, or a nature walk, even an afternoon of art.
The laundry will still be there and so will the dishes.
