“It was 1:00 AM in the morning as I stood folding laundry with tears streaming down my cheeks. Feelings of being overwhelmed flooded my mind,” Michelle wrote. “I cried aloud, ‘LORD I NEED YOUR HELP, I can't do it all! I feel so inadequate! Diapers, dishes, laundry, meals, cleanup, school lessons, baths, hugs, kisses, correction...’ My list seemed to go on and on.”

She continued, “So through the tears I began to sing, ‘The joy of the Lord is my strength.’ In my heart there was a release as if a burden had been lifted. I finished the laundry at 2 AM and went to bed.”

“Days later, I was at our piano teacher's home (at 7 AM) trying to catch up on paperwork while the children were taking their lessons. Instead, I kept drifting off to sleep!” Michelle wrote. “The teacher noticed and asked, ‘Are you OK?’ I replied, ‘I'm fine, I'm just tired. I was up late finishing laundry.’”
