In the thick of it

Do you ever get wrapped up in life and struggle to keep up? Funny how this post follows the 'new beginnings' post where I openly list 10 things going on in my life at once...hmmmmm... oh, and (p.s.) I started the exercise thing too.

I read this post this morning and found comfort in her words as well as His words. Moving has thrown me off my axis. Most days we're doing good and even enjoying summer! But other days I get caught up in the unorganized chaos still laying around and get overwhelmed by what is left to be done. Those days are when I lose sight of the big picture. Moving has whipped me out of my routine and my schedule, now I have to make a new one...urgh.

Psalm 139: 23 "Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties."

So, today is a new day...and His mercies are new. I'm starting over and am going to try and not get overwhelmed by the floors that need cleaning, the library that needs organizing, the desk that needs de-cluttering and the move-in projects that still need attention, the food menu that needs creating, the groceries that need to be purchased, the bills (yuk!) that need paying, the broken-down boxes that need to be stored (please God, I don't want to move again!!!), the grass that needs mowing, the overgrown flowerbeds that need weeding, etc.

It's Friday. That means it's the start of a weekend and family fun time! So let it begin. The rest will be here waiting for me on Monday, right? Enjoy your weekend!

Oh man, I get overwhelmed by all those things all the time, and it has been over a year since we moved! I am constantly looking around at the things that I want to do to our home, and just yesterday I asked my hubby how it seems some people have enough time to get all those things done....My guess would that they don't homeschool, have less children, meaning less stuff, and don't move frequently like you and I do ;) But hey, our life sure is more of an adventure, don't you think???
