I'm ok.....

The depression passed so quickly yesterday. God is SOOOOO good!!! I went to my English class and I was fine. I'm really enjoying that class actually. Then I picked up my son, took him to church, picked my daughter up from volleyball practice, went home, ate dinner, did the dishes, read, and picked up my son at 9. Wednesdays are my busy days. The book I was reading was by Elizabeth George, Loving God With All Your Mind. I just started it. The first chapter was all about thinking on the truth. And that is pretty much what I have been trying to do. God was just reinforcing it to me. When I stay focused on God's truth and not let the lies of the enemy slip in; when I dwell on the truth and not what my mind is making up....THAT is when I am truly living my life.
I made a decision last night, too. I am so burned-out with all my running around that I've decided to forgo my meetings on Mondays until my girl's volleyball is over in November. I didn't go this past week and the extra time with my kids was priceless.
1) God's truth and grace
2) Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream....seriously
3) Women's bible study tonight
4) I was able to pay a few of my credit cards today AND since there is an extra pay period this month, and the end of the month I will have a little extra money
5) I have one or two more quiet weeks here at work before navel season starts.


  1. I have to check out that book; sounds very interesting!

    good decision to simplify for a bit until things settle down with volleyball

    great list :)


  2. Making a little time for yourself in your busy schedule so you can breathe is a terrific idea.


  3. I sometimes have to just go home a couple of nights a week and maybe miss a meeting because I'm so tired. Then I get my energy back and do just fine.

  4. We all need to take a bit of time for ourselves, too much running around isn't good for our spiritual condition, if we are too tired we can miss the message.

    Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream oh YEAH!!!

  5. A bit extra time for You only is very important too. Please be kind and gently with yourself. Hugs to you.
