A Juggling act

Life is sometimes far too busy! It is like a juggling act. You have 9 or 10 things going on at the same time and you wonder if you are actually going to be able to keep them "up in the air" (apparently the maximum number of balls that a person can juggle is 12).

In truth, we can't juggle them all! Sure, we can juggle a few things, but as soon as we pass a critical number of balls in the air, it is only a matter of time before we drop one of them.

I am finding this to be true in my life at the moment. It is hard to say 'No!' It is hard to maintain the juggling act, when other things keep getting added to the routine. I guess, that in the end, we have to the ones to make the call - we have to say 'STOP!'

So, what are you juggling at the moment? Do you have too many balls in the air at the moment? Which one is going to get dropped and is that going to be costly?

“The trick to juggling is determining which balls are made of rubber and which ones are made of glass.” - Anon

Luke 7:31 - “How can I account for the people of this generation? They’re like spoiled children complaining to their parents, ‘We wanted to skip rope and you were always too tired; we wanted to talk but you were always too busy.’
