So far it is off to a slow start. Not for a lack of ideas but at the end of the day I choose to spend time with my hubby or prepare for the day ahead. Honestly sometimes I just choose to crash. Which I have needed a lot lately. This has been a whirl wind of a year and it is only April.
Time for my little confession. Today was the last day of our home school group and I was so excited to be done for the year! Now please do not get me wrong – I love the program, and I enjoy the wonderful families that we have met. We will even happily return in the fall but right now I am burnt out. And not just with school. Is it that we are over doing it? We are used to having somewhat of a busy schedule and we love to be on the go. I could blame it on spring fever. After all we have had some really nice warm days already this year. However I really feel like right now the Lord wants us at home. There are some things that I feel pressing on my heart and I am ready to focus on them. The Lord has been ready to help me through all this but he has been patiently waiting for me. I need to slow down and walk at His pace for I know he does not want me to feel burdened or burnt out.
So as I take this time to be refreshed in all that the Lord has for me I am hopeful that I will be able to write and share it with you also.
I had a friend recently share that she was feeling overwhelmed and posted the following verse…
“Be gracious to me O Lord, for to you do I cry all the day. Gladden the soul of your servant for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. Ps.86:3-5
I love the abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. How comforting is that?
