In Georgia

I know, I just got back from Nebraska. Well, my traveling sister-in-law must be rubbing off on me. My brother-in-law is graduating (well, not really... he's walking but won't be graduating until the end of Summer) on Friday. So, we came up here to see him and spend some time with Cory's parents.

Jaime and I headed out of town yesterday afternoon with all the girls. We left Jordan behind with Cory and they are going to be traveling with Jarrett today and arriving here this evening.

This week has really hit me with stress. I am trying to figure out how to get the schooling done that I need to do with the kids before the end of the school year, traveling more than I usually do, looking into starting my own girls scouts troop for my girls this fall, planning for teaching the 1-day class this fall, financial issues with no income and whatever else comes to my mind at any given moment.

I don't stress out easily. In fact, I rarely get stressed at all. But, I have the canker sores in my mouth to prove what is going on right now. I don't like feeling this way and I am ready to get some kind of normalcy back in my life.

I know one of the big things I have put to the side and should be at the forefront of my day is spending some time with Jesus. I feel like I don't have the time to do it but I know that it is the one thing I need.

Praying your circumstances will be less stressful in the near future.

you are exactly right about spending time with God. God spoke to me during my time with Him tonight and said, "You don't have to try very hard to fill your day with a million tasks and hobbies... spend time with me, other wise you are living just like the rest of the world. What sets you apart is ME. Make time to be with ME."
I had been feeling overwhelmed and a little anxious, but wasn't sure why until i realized I hadn't had quiet time all week! He is definitely the calm to my storm :) I feel a hundred times better. I highly recommend a bubble bath, worship music and prayer. There is something about that combination that makes my time with the Lord so intimate.
