Feeling the crunch!

Some days it just seems you don’t have enough time to get all you need done. Well, I should say most days. Now that I’m working full time and going to school full time, I have a lot more days like that…
This summer, it was quite different. I moved to Raleigh in May and started work. May, June, July and much of August was spent getting to know the area, looking for a few pieces of furniture for the apartment, etc. I also managed to read a few books — for fun!
But that is all over. And, oddly enough, I’m enjoying myself now too. I never thought I would enjoy learning Hebrew as much as I am. Don’t mistake this emotion for in any way being fluent or to indicate that this is easy.
Being one of three women in the class of 50+, I feel the pressure to represent. I am also the oldest woman in the class but definitely not the oldest person.
Since I’ve been out of college a little more than 10 years, I’m definitely feeling the crunch — a certain number of hours to work, homework piling up for all three of my classes, classes to attend, papers to write, quizzes and tests to take, church to attend, orchestra, quiet time — did I say quiet? When do I have TIME for that?
One of things I’ve learned is that if you are following God’s will, which is what I believe I am doing, He makes TIME stretch. TIME has no hold on my GOD! He is beyond all we can imagine.
