Finding Balance and Laughter

On Tuesday nights at 7:30 EST/ 6:30 CST I host a TV show on Mingle Media TV. Tonight will be the fourth show and I am really excited about the topic. It is all about balance.

I am by no means talking on this topic tonight because I am an expert. I am a case study for lack of balance. Last night I was reading through Proverbs 31 for some inspiration. I decided who better to get advice from than this amazing Super Mom.

"She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come." Proverbs 31:25

For some reason Proverbs 31:25 really hit me. I think because she can laugh. She is up before dawn and probably asleep late at night. She has many tasks on her to-do list everyday, yet she still has time to laugh.

My Bible does not expand on this verse in the commentary so I am left to come to my own study conclusions. I think about some of the craziness going on in our family life right now, decisions to be made, vacation to prepare for, home renovations going on and I have forgotten that I need to laugh.

Tomorrow will come whether or not my kids have left their underwear in the middle of the living room floor when someone stops by my house. I might as well relax and have a good laugh.

Tonight I hope to get a little insight from some of the other women from Gather Inspirit on how they find time to balance life, motherhood, and blogging. Join us for the show, visit in the chat room and share your thoughts.

My daughter and I have been talking about laughter and fun families. I want my home to be full of laughter, but I'm afraid many times its not. This topic keeps coming up. Must be God! I know what I need to work on!
