Today I am presenting a re-blog post by my friend, Susan DiMickele. She is the author of Working Women of the Bible and other books.
For many years I struggled with the idea of seeking “balance” for all areas of life. I often used “tension” or “rhythm” as a better word, but I enjoyed how Susan described the issue on her blog. I think you are going to like it also…
I frequently am asked the question: “How do you achieve work-life balance?”
My standard response used to be, “Well, I pray and I maintain a sense of humor.”
But then I got to thinking. Who am I really kidding? Most weeks, there is no balance in my life. Why don’t I just admit it?
And I don’t think I’m alone. The word “balance” just doesn’t describe the lives of most working professionals I know.

Also, if you want to read more about Susan’s excellent book, Working Women of the Bible, I wrote a post about it here.
