The Art of the Juggler — by Morio

Juggler_MWrayThe Art of the Juggler is that he can’t keep his hand on any one ball for too long! If all the balls hit at once he would be overwhelmed and couldn’t hold on, but the art is to keep all of the balls in the air through a rhythm.


With so many things going on in and around our lives, such as home, kids, church, work, bills, relationships, doctor visits and more, we have to find our rhythm to keep all of the balls in the air and still be able to enjoy doing whatever it is that we do. We have six children in our home, which means every day is an adventure! But during basketball season, it gets a little more hectic.

We have five different practices, five different games and the league does not seem to realize that there are only two parents. So on Friday, we tell everyone to get all the stuff they will need prepared in advance for Saturday morning. When this happens, Cottage Del Wray runs like a well-oiled machine and the rhythm is established and usually seems to flow all day long. But might I add any little glitch on game day, things can get out of hand really quickly. Trust me, I’ve been on the losing side of this battle many times. But to the surprise of many, we make it work despite what most would see as overwhelming odds.

Life will continue to throw balls in your direction, and it is your responsibility to discern how much time to spend on each thing without allowing the others to hit the ground. Everyone is different, so our rhythms will be different as well. Once you find yours, you will begin to find joy in the midst of life’s chaos. It will also allow you to take advantage of the opportunities in your life to move forward and not miss out on chances we may never get back.

So as you begin your day, just remember The Art of the Juggler and begin to find your rhythm. THE SOONER THE BETTER!

One thought on “The Art of the Juggler — by Morio

  1. Well said Morio! Proverbs 29:18 came to mind when I read this… “Where there is no vision the people perish; but he who keeps the law is blessed.” We should spend some time before hand to vision what is to be done & prepare for it, then if we actually do it that way we’ll reap the blessing of an accomplished task, which would definitely control the chaos… well some of the chaos.
